Why wouldn't you be excited if Montoya turned out to be like Turco? A career 1.98 GAA and a .922 Save Percentage
I'd be ecstatic if that's the goalie that Montoya turned out to be. To add a little perspective, Martin Broduer, in this defensively minded NHL has not had a GAA less than 2.00 since 97-98 and has not had a SVPCT above .917 in the last 5-7 years where as Turco has done that 3 time in his first 4 seasons. Additionally Turco has 10 less wins than Broduer over the last 2 seasons while playing in 20 less games.
Don't know what you have against Turco, but his numbers are very very impressive.
