Habs sign goaltender Mike Condon to a 2 year deal

Quote:
Former Princeton goaltender Mike Condon has signed the maximum entry level contract with the Montreal Canadiens, according to a source. A formal announcement is expected later today. Following his senior season, the Needham, Mass. native played for the Houston Aeros in the American Hockey League. The Aeros are the AHL affiliate of the Minnesota Wild.

Great name for a goalie, he won't be letting any dirty goals in

I expect him to protect the goal very efficiently.

Actually I expect him to only be ~90% effective.

I guess .900 save percentage is OK.

Elliot Friedman spoke about him and the Habs interest in him a couple of weeks ago in his 30 thoughts blog

"29. A few teams are trying to sign goalie Michael Condon, who joined AHL Houston after his NCAA career ended at Princeton. Condon is 3-0 with a 2.39 goals-against average and a .919 save percentage for the Aeros. The Wild, Houston's parent club, is one of them. There were points this season where Montreal and Philadelphia checked him out. I suspect there are others, too. "

Let's just hope he doesn't break with too much pressure.

Indeed, never fun for a coach to have to resort to Plan B.

A little extra protection is always a good idea.

Hopefully he can hold up to the pressure when things get tight in the slot.

I hope he doesn't get "ribbed" too much by his team mates.

He could be the "trojan" horse for this team.

Finally a goalie who won't let anything go in at the most crucial time.

We had ZERO goaltending depth.

MB goes and
- resigns Budaj (solid backup)
- trades for Tokarski (possible backup, potential as a starter)
- signs Condon (AHL Backup)

Now we have solid quality goaltending depth for 2-3 years. Timmins will now not be FORCED to select a goaltender. He'll pick one if it's BPA, but he isn't being forced to play a hand he doesn't like.


That's all this is. It has no bearing at all with the current on-ice product

That is all dependent on his "lifestyle".
