Not quite understanding the interest in Montoya. For a 6th overall pick he's been a major disappointment. One solid year in 10-11, followed up by a mediocre one in 11-12, puts him towards the bottom of my list. Ahead of Leighton or Bacashihua? Sure, but not much ahead.
If we are talking about UFA goalies with experience, Mason is at the top of my list followed by Hedberg, Biron and Clemmensen. I'd also give some consideration to Yann Danis, who was the AHL goalie of the year last season. His career NHL numbers are very respectable.
But there are also a number of UFA goalies who are coming off of their initial contracts that have done very well at the AHL level that I'd take a look at.
Matt Zatkoff - Manchester Monarchs, originally a 3rd round pick of the Kings. Career GAA 2.64, career save %age .915
Cedrick Desjardins - Lake Erie Monsters. Career GAA 2.33, career save %age .919
Brad Thiessen - WB/S Penguins - 2010-11 goalie of the year, career GAA 2.38, career save %age .908
