    Will Maxime Ouellet ever amount to anything? Or has he wasted all his chances. I just wanted to hear what you guys had to say about this.

    I didn't give up on him yet. It's a shame he had such a tumultuous career so far but his trade to Vancouver was a good thing IMO. He'll have the opportunity to play again, which is already a progress compared to his last season with Portland, so we will see.

    Actually, I don't expect him to play again in the NHL soon but I guess he'll get another chance after his rather good game against the Oilers in November.

    He'll probably never live up to the expectations of when he was drafted but he's still a good goalie IMO.

    Played Minnesota the other day and was atroicous. He is so fundamentally poor and mentally weak that it is difficult to see him as ever doing anything. What happened???

    He's showed more promise in his two games against Edmonton and Minnesota than Alex Auld has in his 26 games this season. This guy still has some untapped potential and we haven't seen enough of him to really determine anything. Hopefully he shares some time with the AHL back up named Alex Auld.

    Are you serious?

    Ouellet has looked absolutely atrocious in both his starts. Small, always on his knees and out of position. Lateral mobility is possibly the worst I've ever seen from a guy in the NHL. Down way too early, crumples in net. Looks like his dog died when a puck gets by him. He's not even remotely close to being an NHL netminder. I really don't need to see any more from him. He's terrible.

    Auld, on the other hand, has been solid. He's struggled a bit in the last few weeks, but he still looks like an NHL goaltender. For the first two months of the season he was excellent. He's let a few softies in recently, but he's still big, quick, and technically sound. Ouellet is none of those.
