I dont think any trade is a forgone conclusion.
As I always like to point out, Beezer won a Vezina when he was 23 year's old. However it was a goalie 3 years younger who ended up winning the cup.
Montoya when he comes up will get his starts and depending on how he plays will determine how many more he gets.
We seem to think that this situation we're in has never happened in the history of hockey before.
Nothing is decided yet. Montoya is right on Lundqvists level in terms of talent, it's not debating Lundqvist vs. Holt here.
Ideally I believe the Rangers should see who the best goalie turns out to be. There's no rush to make a deal now. I don't believe the situation is now or never and there's also no gurantee that Montoya HAS to step into the NHL next season.
We're looking at this situation with too many assumed conclusions.
