Oct 26 is my bet.

Sat, 15 Oct 2011 Avalanche vs Canadiens

Mon, 24 Oct 2011 Panthers vs Canadiens

Wed, 26 Oct 2011 Flyers vs Canadiens

I'd say he gets a game or two this month. Avs and Flyers or Avs and Panthers.

Why on earth?!?! I'm at that game and I definitely don't want Budaj in against the Flyers.

edit: back to back nights, and Bruins on the latter... sigh

After 8 straight games for Price and against the Flyers? I wouldn't bet on that.

I'd give him the 27th.

Analyzer 10-11-2011 10:14 AM

I'll say 15th.

Look at the spacing between games... Price could definitely handle 8 straight games. My issue is Philly and Boston. If Price was to sit out one of those games, it's definitely Philly.

And thinking about the Avalanches game... Budaj's previous team. I think it could happen.

15th and 26th....what do i win:sarcasm:

neofury* 10-11-2011 10:24 AM

Moen in Glory 10-11-2011 10:38 AM

Mon, 24 Oct 2011 Panthers vs Canadiens

I think he will get more games in November

Best guess I think. Look at Auld last year. ONE SINGLE GAME against a playoff team.

Apr 7 '11 MTL @ OTT
Mar 20 '11 MTL @ MIN
Feb 26 '11 CAR @ MTL
Feb 10 '11 NYI @ MTL
Feb 2 '11 FLA @ MTL
Jan 11 '11 MTL @ NYR
Dec 31 '10 MTL @ FLA
Dec 11 '10 MTL @ TOR
Nov 26 '10 MTL @ ATL
Oct 29 '10 MTL @ NYI

Odds are he plays against either the Flyers or Bruins since the games are back to back. Before that the best game for him is probably Sat vs. the Avs. Hope not, since I'm going to that one, but if he's going to play more than Auld did then that's probably the easiest game.

Aside from the back-to-back, the schedule's tight but regular. We might just see Price playing all of them till the 26th/27th.

Kriss E 10-11-2011 11:08 AM

Martin said he wants Price to get around 60starts, which means Budaj will play once every 4games. Considering our 5th game of the year is versus divisional rival Buffalo, I have a feeling Budaj will play versus his old team, the Avs, on Saturday.

Budaj is a decent young goalie. He is better than Auld, and working with Groulx will help him. I expect Martin to be playing with the schedule at first, trying to match Budaj versus weaker opponents, to see how he handles himself. If he proves capable of solid back up goaltending, then Martin won't have any problem giving him tougher games.

holyhabs87 10-11-2011 11:13 AM

Avs would be a good spot for Budaj but Price doesn't need rest early on.

So I'd play him on the 22nd or 24th.

That's my guess too

HH 10-11-2011 11:23 AM

Wow looking at the schedule we play 15 of 18 at home in Jan-Feb.

(We obviously have our long holiday trip before that)

End of November & December... we play 13 of 18 away.

NLHabsFan 10-11-2011 11:28 AM

I'd play him on the 27th vs. the Bruins. Baptism by fire.

One thing I've found (though just my opinion) is for back-to-back games it is better to start the back-up in the second game. The first game you go with the #1 for the 2 points. The 2nd game when the players may be a little tired, put in the back-up because that gives the players a little more motivation to play hard for the guy who doesn't play often. Also, when playing the #1 in the second game, the players may feel it's ok to be tired and not give it all because you have the main guy back there to steal it for you.

larrypacman8167 10-11-2011 12:24 PM

he won't get a start until nov.17th against NYI

Theosis 10-11-2011 12:29 PM

I'm thinking he'll start the 26th. Pretty sure JM will want Price for both Bruins games.

Vinc360 10-11-2011 12:52 PM

please not october 15th... I have tickets for that game! If we lose the next game vs the flames there's no way budaj gets a start next saturday

Gabe84 10-11-2011 01:03 PM

I hope he starts on the road.

thewall 10-11-2011 01:07 PM

I'm driving 13 hours to see my beloved Habs.. I havent been to a game in MTL since 2002. I will be there for the Home Opener vs Calgary and saturday vs the Avs. Please , Please, Please DO NOT PUT BUDAJ in on the 15th.. LOL.. I'm a goalie and i want to see my favorite Hab play in both games!

Hopefully the game vs the Panthers... I say Budaj will get most of his starts on the road just like Auld did last season!

optimus2861 10-11-2011 01:10 PM

15th vs Avs, and 24th vs Panthers.

The 3-in-4 stretch coming at the end of the month is nasty since it's all against teams that will be playoff contenders. You hate to throw him in cold against one of them. If Budaj gets one of those, my bet is 27th vs Bruins, for reasons stated by NLHabsFan above.
