Not bad. Would maybe have preferred to keep Auld, but that's fine.

Good sign!

He's great team player. Good backup. I'll miss him in Colorado.

Good luck Boods.

And just to get this on the record: hate this deal. Budaj is awful. Have no idea why they wouldn't keep Auld, who was perfect in the mentor/stabilizing role for Price. Makes absolutely no sense IMO.

Mixed feelings, I would've signed Auld for another year.

Let's hope Carey has another career year and Budaj don't play much

Not a fan of Budaj, at all

LMAO - OK I really hope he doesn't read HF but he's awful, terrible, wouldn't have even given him league minimum.

We should have signed Auld. Worst signing of the day. And I was optimistic

Last year people were upset about Auld. I defended that signing.

Budaj? That will get no defense from me. Every Avalanche fan I know despises Peter Budaj.

B(Auld) sucked for half the games he played. Budaj can at least start on an NHL team, Auld is a pure backup.

Decent signing, but it doesn't really matter, you could have a scarecrow as the backup to our superstar Carey Price

Seems like a good move. I guess he's better than Auld.

I think it's funny considering how he played in Colorado.

But he did have a Simpson character behind his mask with them.

lol give me a break... Budaj is more than decent as a backup. In all fairness, he's probably even a bit better than Auld.

I don't get this one. Why spend 1.15 on a backup? Not like Budaj is a vet either. I don't see the fit. What can he provide?

Would have really rather have Auld, even if it took 2 years to get him signed.

Cool, I'm glad we signed him. Wouldnt have mind Auld back but who know, maybe he asked too much money.

The connection between Montreal and Colorado goalie is really a thing eh...

Not sold on Budaj, at all. Would have preferred Auld back.

I don't like this signing.
