I'd say he gets a game or two this month. Avs and Flyers or Avs and Panthers.

Look at the spacing between games... Price could definitely handle 8 straight games. My issue is Philly and Boston. If Price was to sit out one of those games, it's definitely Philly.

And thinking about the Avalanches game... Budaj's previous team. I think it could happen.

Odds are he plays against either the Flyers or Bruins since the games are back to back. Before that the best game for him is probably Sat vs. the Avs. Hope not, since I'm going to that one, but if he's going to play more than Auld did then that's probably the easiest game.

Aside from the back-to-back, the schedule's tight but regular. We might just see Price playing all of them till the 26th/27th.

Martin said he wants Price to get around 60starts, which means Budaj will play once every 4games. Considering our 5th game of the year is versus divisional rival Buffalo, I have a feeling Budaj will play versus his old team, the Avs, on Saturday.

Budaj is a decent young goalie. He is better than Auld, and working with Groulx will help him. I expect Martin to be playing with the schedule at first, trying to match Budaj versus weaker opponents, to see how he handles himself. If he proves capable of solid back up goaltending, then Martin won't have any problem giving him tougher games.

Avs would be a good spot for Budaj but Price doesn't need rest early on.

So I'd play him on the 22nd or 24th.

Wow looking at the schedule we play 15 of 18 at home in Jan-Feb.

(We obviously have our long holiday trip before that)

I'd play him on the 27th vs. the Bruins. Baptism by fire.

One thing I've found (though just my opinion) is for back-to-back games it is better to start the back-up in the second game. The first game you go with the #1 for the 2 points. The 2nd game when the players may be a little tired, put in the back-up because that gives the players a little more motivation to play hard for the guy who doesn't play often. Also, when playing the #1 in the second game, the players may feel it's ok to be tired and not give it all because you have the main guy back there to steal it for you.

I'm thinking he'll start the 26th. Pretty sure JM will want Price for both Bruins games.

I'm driving 13 hours to see my beloved Habs.. I havent been to a game in MTL since 2002. I will be there for the Home Opener vs Calgary and saturday vs the Avs. Please , Please, Please DO NOT PUT BUDAJ in on the 15th.. LOL.. I'm a goalie and i want to see my favorite Hab play in both games!

Hopefully the game vs the Panthers... I say Budaj will get most of his starts on the road just like Auld did last season!

15th vs Avs, and 24th vs Panthers.

The 3-in-4 stretch coming at the end of the month is nasty since it's all against teams that will be playoff contenders. You hate to throw him in cold against one of them. If Budaj gets one of those, my bet is 27th vs Bruins, for reasons stated by NLHabsFan above.
