Yzerman, Brodeur, Lidstrom, and Sakic were not traded. What's your point?

Elite goaltending in the NHL is ephemeral. Look what happened to Jose Theodore. Still, if his NHL career thus far is any indication, Lundqvist is an elite goaltender. Easily top 5 in the league. In his mid-twenties. NYR would be crazy to trade him, and they won't.

If Montoya really is the real deal, platoon him with Lundqvist for injury insurance, then deal one of them when the market is favorable.
