SPECTOR’S NOTE: No surprise here. Though Budaj was eligible for unrestricted free agency this summer, he’s been a terrific compliment to Habs starter Carey Price and a dependable presence on the Habs roster. He’s currently earning $1.2 million this season, so he gets a nice little pay bump to $1.4 million per season.
