Don't see how Budaj is any better...
I am indifferent on this signing but you can't really compare this on the same level. Auld has pretty much always been a back-up and traditionally gets starts against inferior competition and Budaj has been Colorados starter for most of the last 3 years on a horrible team.

With your legendary pessimism, I wouldn't expect any other type of reaction from you.

For a starter of course he's bad.

He's not going to play 45 games with us, he'll play something like 15-20 games.

Good signing. Budaj will be a decent backup. I wasn't impressed with Auld, so glad he is gone.

I would have preffered Auld back but lol, dont jump the gun, Price is a young goaltender who is blossoming in one of the most beautiful goalkeeper in the league, can play alot and Budaj can do the job as the number 2.. so funny to see some fans going crazy right now and going to say in some months from now, it wasnt a so bad signing after all..

The most important when you have an elite goaltender like Price in the net, is having a second one with a good attitude that will encourage the team and will be decent in the net when his turn comes.. I think we can all expect this from Budaj.. He has played for a crappy team for years, so do take his stats as a grain of salt..

Hopefully Carey won't be looking for many Budaj calls this year.

You realize all teams carry a backup goalie, right?

Budaj is exactly what we need. Quality backup goalie who can step in and do a decent job if Price gets injured, or keep a fire under Price to not go into a major slump.

Budaj has played over 20 games 5 times in comparison to Auld's 4. The most games in a season Budaj has played is 57. Auld played 67. Not much difference, really.

Won't you be amazed the day I post something positive about PG or Bob Gainey though? I mean really, that post could be a 'Sticky' if that happened.

Not a great signing, there were better candidates out there, but not a bad signing either. I'm more pleased with this signing than I was with the Auld one. Though this confirms something, we knew already, a french goalie will never be a Habs.

ouch. Seems like all GM's are desperate today. I suppose I can't complain about nothing being done now, but not what I had hoped.

This day always brings me comic relief from a hard day's work. LOL

Throw me in the why not keep Auld camp. Always thought it would be cool to sign Lang again.

Auld Lang (Syne ???)
