I don't know why someone wouldn't claim Montador. He is a good defenseman who has had concussion problems. He has been good and healthy so far in the AHL since his return. If Montador stays healthy, the contract is fair. A free asset but yes he is signed for this year and next. However if he gets another concussion then he can be put on LTIR or he will retire and either way his contract won't count against the cap. If he doesn't get a concussion then you add a #4/5 defenseman for nothing but his 2.7 mil cap hit. If Douglas Murray and Robyn Regehr can get two 2nd round picks(overpayments) then I can definitely see someone claiming Montador for free. I get not taking the risk when Monty was waived before playing any games but now he has shown he is healthy for now. It would be a smart move for a contender who needs a good defenseman to stabilize the bottom pair or help the 2nd pairing. We'll see I guess.
