The Coyotes have a great deal of depth when it comes to goaltending. Al Montoya will challenge Tellqvist for the backup job. If Montoya wins the job, Tellqvist is a gone for sure. What do you think the Coyotes can get for him?

If Montoya wins the job, I think any interested party would just wait until Tellqvist is on waivers.

I'd say he'd be worth keeping in the AHL incase of injury (unless the Coyotes have someone else in mind?)

Late round pick at best. Most likely nothing.

a bag of pucks. Tellqvist is the most overrated swedish goalie ever. He is good for nothing.

Yes, because there's a big group of those to choose from

What exactly could possibly make him overrated anyway? Nobody has ever though anything more about him than as a career backup.

he is overrated because he still plays in NHL. He should be in the minors or europe.

2.74 GAA, .908 SV%

Not the nicest of stats, but perfectly acceptable for a backup goalie. I agree he shouldn't be getting 20-25 starts a season, but for a team with a top goalie who plays a lot of games like Brodeur, Lundqvist, Kiprusoff, etc., he would be fine in those roles as a cheap solution as opposed to paying millions of dollars for a backup to start 7 games in the season.

Honestly, the way you worded it just made you look stupid. "The most overrated Swedish goalie of all time." As opposed to whom else? Lundqvist? Tommy Salo? That's hardly a bold statement at all.

I think he's a terrible goaltender, but I'm a disgruntled Leaf fan who never liked him, even before he got the start against the Devils in a home game I attended in like the first row, which up to that point I had never sat that close to the ice in my life.

The Leafs lost the game due to terrible goaltending, and if not for Belak destroying Janssen in a fight (pre-Kaberle, I think), I may have committed suicide on the way home.

there are more goalies than salo and lundqvist. In fact, more goalies in SEL that are better or more talented than tellqvist.

My guess is Montoya will be playing in Prescott of the Central Hockey League this season, and will never be a regular NHLer.

Really? I'm a Coyotes fan and I think he's a great back up. I'm glad he's on the team.

No way. Gretzky seemed pretty pleased with Montaya so far when he talked about him in the Sharks post-game interview. He's at least going to play in the AHL.

What's the guy going to say?

"Montoya sucks. He's not going to become anything for us. I wish we had Sjostrom still."

Now I'm not saying any of that is necessarily true, but if you think you're going to hear anything truthful, especially during a post-game interview, then you're kidding yourself.

Well he didn't have to say anything, for one, since he was never asked specifically about Montoya or the goalie situation.

Also, if Montoya looked CHL-bound at this point, he would have been cut before Tordjman or Gistedt.

What? Please, stop typing. The guy should not be a starter don't get me wrong but overrated? Do you understand what overrated means? I never hear anything really good about the guy so care to explain? He would make a decent backup to someone, just not a starter. Seems like you have a personal issue with him

The word overrated is so overrated on these boards

Tellqvist played well when spelling off Brysgalov last season and has played like a good backup should. All this Tellqvist sucks kind of posts makes me wonder if people actually pay attention to the truth anymore. Tellqvist will be the backup , once again. Montoya will get his chance after this season when Tellqvist's current contract runs out.

The Coyotes goaltending situation is such that, currently, Tellqvist is spelling Bryzgalov in the NHL, while two of Al Montoya, Josh Tordjman and Joel Gistedt will be in the AHL and one in the CHL. Those three all should probably be seeing better competition than the CHL can offer, which is why Tellqvist seems movable at this point.

I would love to have Tellqvist. He probably one of my favorite goalies. He doesn't fuss about backing up. He is one of the few NHLers who know their place and are just glad to be in the best league in the world. Other wise he would have left to start somewhere else.

Actually yes, especially around here. When he first broke in the guy was hyped as the best Swedish goalie since Pelle. He was #1 in pole's, had wonderful stats in the SEL, but IMO, couldn't translate the #'s to the NHL.

I do like him as a back-up though.

Yup. The players love him, too, and really play hard for him. Often times, when a backup gets the start, the players loaf a bit, feeling already defeated. That's not the case with Tellqvist. You can count on a strong showing from the players in front of him when he gets the start.
