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.
I gotta disagree - it's not over-valuing Montoya as much as it is recognizing the position the team would be in if he were to get claimed. Not worth gambling.

Think about it: Nabby gets waived, DEFINITELY gets acquired, and the stand that Snow took last year is a moot point, having let the asset go for nothing.

DP gets waived, no one touches him with a ten foot pole....and if they did, I know roughly half a fanbase that wouldn't be too upset. They'd miss his heart, not his attitude, stats, injuries or contract.

Montoya gets waived, easily could get picked up due to his minimal caphit, and the Isles have to ride DP, Nabby, and eventually wind up rushing Poulin again since we know DP isn't staying healthy for very long.

Say what you want about Montoya, but he's the strongest option between guys who are in the twilight of their careers (Nabby, possibly DP), guys who can't stay healthy to save their lives (definitely DP) and guys too young to rush into 1B status so quick (Poulin, Nilsson, Koskinen.)

Having three netminders is never a threat. It's a curse.

The great Billy Smith once said when you have three goalies you ruin two. This is when it was he, Melanson and Hrudy. The three headed monster will have to be dealt with eventually. Sooner rather than later I hope.

I think Nabakov will be traded.

Why does anyone think Poulin is the answer to islanders goalie issues? If Montayo maintains his save % from last year, this coming year he will be in the top NHL goalies. The only goalies that had a better save % were Rinne, Lundqvist, Vokoun, Thomas, Luongo and Price. That is some fine company and Poulin will have some trouble breaking into that level.

Seriously, what are the odds Nabokov gets some starts or gets traded? My fantasy team is relying on it...

Nabokov Speaks

http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/i...-goalie-system


Reading between the lines, it sounds like Nabokov is saying, "I'm really not thrilled with this 3-goalie situation, but I'll do my best not to be a distraction now. However if I don't get some playing time in the near future, all bets are off..."

Then there was 2. Is it fair to say Montoya may just be what we were suppose to get with Dipietro and maybe we got some luck for once ? The former first rounder is now looking like everyone hoped and with him being younger then rick, seems like a great thing for us. Hate rick keeps getting hurt I wanted him to be the guy and he did to...shame.

No offense but why did you build a fantasy team with Nabokov as your starter? It's been no secret that there are lots of other goalies on Long Island (and Bridgeport).

Already mentioned this in the BPort thread, and Sneekeypete quickly replied, but I'm not happy with seeing Poulin and Nilsson allowing 4 or 5 goals against at the AHL level.

I thought these two were soooooooooooooooo special that opponents at that level would have to move mountains to even score 3 against the Tigers. I thought these boys would singlehandedly win games.

Maybe it'll come - I wanted it from the beginning. I know the defense (both the six Dmen and the defensive concept of the team) play a significant role, I just thought Poulin and Nilsson's pure skill would make up for any weaknesses elsewhere.

Agreed. I just looked at their stats like 2 hours ago and thought the same exact thing. Their games should pick back up though, escp. Poulins

I think montoya will start again. I think hes the better goalie. I think they gave Nabby the start against the Rags so he wouldnt get too rusty. Im fine with either goalie but Id like to see Monty in net tonight then Nabby vs fla unless monty has a real good game then I think you go with him again.

Jesus, I wish that DP would just go away...we have a good tandem now, more than capable of keeping us in enough games to challenge for a playoff spot and we have this ****ing albatross hanging around our God damn neck...

guy's like a case of herpes who always seems to flare up the instant you hook up with a hot chick...

Nabokov's Shot (or is that save)

Does the loss last night give Nabokov a shot to take over the starting job for a few games? Capuano said he would go with the hot goalie, so if Evgeni comes in and has a good game does he automatically get the next start?

I think Nabokov has earned the Florida start, if he plays well and they win I think you'll see him the next game against Pitt, and if not then you'll see DP. But don't discount Montoya because of one game where the team in front of him didn't show up.
