You are always looking for an improvement, but there is really not options out there right now. Pasquale is nowhere near ready, and the only UFA options left are raw rookies/AHL veterans or a terrible options like Dan Ellis. Montoya will be fine for 15-20 starts, IMO, kinda like a Jason Labarbera (dominate AHLer, below average NHL backup). Not the best situation, but not a terrible one either.

The real issue is that the Jets need ALOT more consistency from the main guy Pavelec, I am much more concerned about that then Montoya as the backup.
