Montoya to be Group 6 UFA
good as any of them:
Al Montoya 8 4 4 2.35 .923
Kevin Poulin 4 2 1 2.44 .924
Dwayne Roloson 6 13 1 2.64 .916
Rick DiPietro 8 11 4 3.36 .889
Nathan Lawson 1 4 2 4.06 .893
Mikko Koskinen 2 1 0 4.33 .873
However, it appears that unless the Islanders re-sign him by July 1st, Montoya
will become an Unrestricted Free Agent under Group 6 of the Collective
"These players, whose contracts have expired, are age 25 or older, have
completed three or more professional seasons, and (i) in the case of a player
other than a goaltender, have played less than 80 NHL games (regular-season and
playoff), or (ii) in the case of a goaltender, have played less than 28 NHL
games (regular-season and playoff)." Montoya has appeared in 22 NHL games (17
for the Isles and 5 for Phoenix). However, a goaltender must play at least 30
minutes in a game for the game to count towards the total. While all 17 games
he has played for the Isles count, only four of the 5 games he played for
With only six games left for the Islanders this season, Montoya will not reach
the 28 game mark.
