Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
He believes he still has the game to be an NHL goalie. But since the Hawks are still on the hook for another year next season at $5.625 million, he’s likely stuck in Europe until the team buys him out.
“I don’t know what Chicago’s intentions are for next year,” said Huet, who went 26-14-8 with a 2.50 GAA last season in Chicago. “I’ll probably be in the same situation with my salary and not playing in the NHL. It’s really not up to me, but we’ll see what happens next year.”
For now, he’s making the best of being back in Switzerland, where he tended goal for four seasons before heading to Los Angeles in 2002. While he’s a native of France, Huet married a Swiss woman, so the move made sense on the personal side of things. He also obtained his Swiss passport earlier this week.
