As has been said, it's all about consistency.
Young goalies are funny in the sense that sometimes, almost like a light switch, it happens and they never look back.
NOT saying that is what has happened with Montoya here, but like many young goalies he has had to work on smoothing out the rough edges, playing consistent and developing his game.
Montoya is getting to the point where he's going to play in the NHL. Now what he becomes at the NHL level remains to be seen but at this point we at least know what that he's going to play there.
If he plays like this through February and into March, it does give the Rangers the option to trade Weekes at that point. I wouldn't however expect Montoya to be traded, non-NHL goalies simply do not bring back returns that are worth trading them.
But time will have to tell. If Montoya can perform like this through February he should get his look.
