The Montreal Canadiens have signed former Colorado Avalanche goalie Peter Budaj to a two year, $2.3 million contract.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: I agree with TSN’s Darren Pang, not sure I’m sold on Budaj as a backup for Montreal. Then again, he’ll be riding the pine a lot behind Carey Price, but if Price struggles or gets hurt, I’d want someone with a little better pedigree than Budaj. At least the dollars and term are agreeable.
