That said if he can be as good as Auld 22 doesn't seem like that big a deal, it will likely be against teams we should have no problem beating.
Pretty sure Budaj will be good with the Habs. He's the type of goalie that fits into the Habs mold. Groulx is gonna have a lot more to work with having Budaj rather than Auld IMO.
