Had there not been salary issues, Montoya would have been the backup to Lundqvist last season. He was not traded earlier because he was expected to fill that role (before the gigantic signings of Drury and Gomez). It was the large money signings that were the problem. Before that, he had not played a near full season injury-free to get reasonable assets in return. Not sure it was terrible mismanagement. It was unfortunate, but when you have the opportunity to get both Drury and Gomez, some other assets can fall by the wayside.
