    Default Charlie Lindgren situation

    So what is the plan with this guy in long term? Heard he doesn't like to play another season in minor, way too early of course but my feeling is he will eventually become number one in this league. Again too early but he looked pretty calm despite his age in his first two nhl games.

    If we can get rid of Montoya, he will be our backup next year.

    Not really, it is just will one more season in minor really help his development?

    Holtby spent 2.5 yrs in the AHL, Schneider spent 2-3 seasons in the AHL, Quick spent at least 2-seasons between ECHL & AHL, so I'd say yes.

    It'll help more than playing 20 games in the NHL.

    Didn't we re-sign Montoya to a multi-year deal?

    I suppose he could be traded for a D level prospect.

    I thought it was another year but you might be right. Granted we did it so we could expose him to the Knights. We could also just waive him.

    Actually I don't recall. It was probably just a year.

    Montoya has two more years other than this year.

    Montoya is under contract for 2 more years.

    But nothing prevents Lindgren from beating him out in training camp. Montoya's contract is just 1M so we can bury him or trade him if needed.

    I have a feeling they'll play it safe after what happened last season.

    For sure, just like they were hoping to keep Condon at the beginning of the year as well.

    Is this even a question? I mean, a real question?

    On what factual basis does Lindgren have to "demand" anything? He's not a guy who's spent years in the minors looking for an opportunity somewhere and he's not dominating the minors. If he doesn't like his current situation, his contract's up at the end of the year. He can head to Europe to try to be a #1 there.
    Elite goaltending will hide a lot of a bad team's flaws and make them look a lot better than they truly are. That's why Carey Price is the single most important player to his team in the NHL.

    My new poorly written out thoughts on this season's Montreal Canadiens.

    Let him get coached up in Laval. Maybe he'll get more time with Waite.

    Mike Condon was the best goalie in the ECHL his first pro year and then was one of the better goalies in the AHL in his second pro year. Wasn't playing on world beating teams either. Made his niche in the NHL soon after.

    I'd like to see Lindgren dominate before worrying about his future.
