Yes. that is why we will most likely not send him down.
I do not think he would clear personally.

Emperor wang will never put his best friend on waivers. And even if he does go on waivers, no team I repeat NO TEAM will take on the remaining 10 years and $45 million on that contract. Isles have Poulin, Koskinen, and Nilsson in BP. So if dp is weakest (and there is a very strong chance he is), only option is buyout or tell him to retire. Buyout will happen since he still thinks he is an elite goalie. Something that he never was.

He wouldn't clear waivers. He is a solid goalie, and his cap hit is under a million bucks. You would have a bunch of teams lining up to claim him. Teams that would come to mind would Be Florida, Ottawa, Edmonton, Phoenix(it wouldn't surprise me since they got weak goaltending)

Is DP the opening night starter? I am assuming he is, if so we all know it will be his job to lose.

I'm not saying that Montoya would clear. However, you should scratch Phoenix from your list.

It was Don Baloney who called Snow offering up Montoya. So there was obviously no plans for Montoya in Phx.

Cause they thought they would be able to keep brzygalov. I only mentioned phoenix as a possibility since mike smith is their #1 goalie and he is atrocious.

If Baloney thought he was going to keep Bryz with the lack of funds/owner, then he's the worst GM of all time.

Also.....Chicago has Ray Emery just signed. If Crawford gets hurt, they might be in play.

You do not send Montoya to Bridgeport. He will get claimed. DP will not, and DP is not nearly the goalie Montoya is now.

it's pretty obvious to me this team will do the wrong thing.

also if you listen to the Capuano interview on ITV from today, at the end he's asked if he wants the team to have a #1 goalie, and sounds very wishy washy about it.

Bugs the hell out of me. There is 1 person who is keeping DP here & that's the owner. Garth knows it, Capuano knows it, Gordon knew it, every single fan knows it. 3 goalie systems don't work. Never have, never will.

Dipi is gone after this season...unless hes stays healthy and posts descent numbers, not to worry.

A little addendum to that....

I often check out other teams' GDT's to get a little non-Islander-centric insight, and there were a few interesting posts supporting certain.....logically cynical opinions some of us fans harbor about our goaltending situation.....

Good to see Montoya getting respect, that much we all should agree upon.

Montoya with the start

This makes me real happy, shows that Cappy is gonna start whoever plays the best. I was worried DP and Nabby were gonna get a ton of starts cause ones a million dollar man and the other is an "elite" goaltender.

I'm actually shocked that he's getting the start. In the preseason, I think DP did play the best. A lot of people said that whoever played best should get the start and DP did play very good. I think this is just Cappys way of lighting a fire under everyone to start off the year. The best possible thing for this team right now is to have 3 hungry goaltenders.

I'm actually pretty surprised it's neither Nabby nor DiPi starting, but am pretty happy that it's Montoya. Anyone but DiPi!

Unknown at this point. Keep an eye on the next several games. This 3 goalie thing isn't going to last very long.

All I know is that DP did not deserve to be booed last night and I am kind of ticked about that. Secondly, he is here for a ton more years, do you really think it is a good idea to boo him so that he starts to resent playing here and then we are stuck with him? People need to think before they act.

I think some of you here are grossly overrating Al Montoya and have seriously over-inflated his value around the rest of the league.

First of all, I wouldn't be surprised at all if he cleared waivers. As for the teams you are suggesting, Florida already has a log-jam with Jose Theodore, Jakub Marstrom and Scott Clemmensen. Montoya offers them no clear upgrade on any of those tenders, so Florida wouldn't claim him. Edmonton has Khabibulin and Dubnyk, neither of whom would be unseated by Montoya and ditto for Ottawa with Anderson and Auld. Then you list Phoenix, the team that already decided they had no plans for Montoya and traded him in the first place?

I don't see a team in the league that I could say would be better by claiming Al Montoya. If it came down to it, I think the Islanders could waive him and he'd clear.

Maloney was well aware of the market for starting goaltenders and financial situation in Phoenix. There's no way in hell he thought there was any chance he was going to re-sign Bryzgalov. He didn't even table an offer because he knew he couldn't possibly compete with outside offers. That's why he traded away his negotiating rights.

Who would you pick if yous screenname was Islesfan3591?

DP played better than Nabby but not nearly as well as Montoya. DP was inconsistent, gambled and made some bonehead plays. Nabby was weak on his goals. Montoya showed poise and solid positioning.

This was a reward, not a message.

DP was on the bench after suffering a groin pull tripping over 2012. He'd day to day.
