I think you guys are selling Michaud short. He is just 20 years old. Danis was a freshman in the NCAA with a 3.86 GAG at the same age. Don't get carried away.
That said, I think it is a good move, as the signing of Michaud was. Of all the goaltenders taken in the first round over the past 5 years, only Rick DiPietro and Dan Blackburn have played more than a handful of games. Neither of those two has been great in the NHL, either.

If this stops Montreal from using a high draft pick on a goaltender, I'm all for it. But I do think that Michaud can be another Theodore. Jose never really broke out intil he was 23 or 24, remember.
