Out of curiosity, where did the Montador hype start? The whole board has salivating over him for a week or two. At least last year's Hamhuis obsession made sense since he was one of the top UFA d-men available.
A few of us have brought up his name for years now.

I think the recent hype started with a rumour that he was coming to Vancouver this offseason. And he's a Vancouver boy right RHS that plays on the right side, which we always seem to need. Capable bottom pairing player with grit and edge, would be an ok fit.

The more I think about the more I'm not sold on Salo returning on anything more than a depth defenceman, for no more than 1.5. Him being injured for half the season or more screws up the pairings.

Damn Ehrhoff, not sure what we can do to find a replacement for him - not just as a PMD but also as a complimentary player to Edler.

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - ?
Alberts - Montador
Rome
Tanev
