Extremely controversial statement by an analyst regarding the Canadiens' goaltenders

Honestly, since the beginning of the season, the Montreal Canadiens goalies are playing extremely well. They are clearly allowing the Habs to surprise and win games.

Both Jake Allen and Samuel Montembeault have had great moments in net and are solid.

Allen, 32, has a .907% efficiency rate and a 4-5-0 record.

Montembeault, 26, has a .930% (!) efficiency rate and a 3-1-1 record.


It's clear that they're overachieving and doing very well, but we shouldn't go overboard either. Some people are going way too far, including RDS expert Gaston Therrien.

On RDS' "L'Antichambre" show, the colorful Gaston Therrien, who is known for his daring statements, mentioned on air that according to him, the best goaltending duo in the NHL is in Montreal.

Yes, he clearly stated that the Habs have the best goaltending duo in the NHL. See the proof (at 7 minutes):


The Habs goalies are doing well right now, and they deserve a lot of credit, but can we put them ahead of duos like Andrei Vasilevskiy - Brian Elliott, Igor Shesterkin - Jaroslav Halak or Ilya Sorokin - Semyon Varlamov? Not sure...

A statement that is causing a lot of talk, especially coming from a hockey analyst.
