He's improved, I'll definitely give him that. However, there are a lot of things in his game that still need to be adressed.

For example, in tonight's game he skated out to the corner to play the puck, fell down, and almost had the puck go into the net while he was down and out of the play. Luckily, it stopped in the crease and Marvin Degon cleared it out.

Personally, I think Valiquette would be better suited as the backup in New York next season, with Montoya getting an extra season of development in Hartford to work out any kinks he might still have in his system. At the moment, yeah Valiquette hasn't been terrific in his last few games. However, he's still a good goaltender.
