Dubnyk to Habs

Montreal has brought in goaltender Devan Dubnyk from Nashville, and although I don’t know what it’s going to cost them in future considerations, I’m sure it won’t be much.

Does this mean Carey Price is still a ways from being ready to play? Is his lower body injury, announced after Sochi, a serious thing?

If that’s the case, I’m afraid we’re quite screwed. Unless it’s a Disney movie-type scenario, Peter Budaj and Dubnyk or Dustin Tokarski isn’t going to be the combo to help make a run down this final stretch.

And what happened to Tokarski?

  1. I’m assuming two things: 1) Price is indeed a ways away from returning; or 2) Budaj might be gone, and 3) They have no confidence in Tokarski.

  2. I don’t get it, Ian. Price has been skating, Budaj’s been decent, and I don’t think Dubnyk is much of an upgrade any which way. And Tokarski seemed to be doing a fine job in Hamilton. It’s all very weird.

  3. It seems it is, Marjo. This one especially. I don’t know why we need Dubnyk. The only thing that makes sense is Price must be hurt more than we thought, and with Tokarski up, the goaltending situation in Hamilton is thin. So whether it’s Tokarski or Dubnyk backing up Budaj and whichever one is in Hamilton, who knows. It just seems like an overall bad thing.

  4. Well, my boys are excited about Dubsnyk! They say he’s a good acquisition. And I agree with you, Price is probably injured and they need sa good backup for Budaj. Sometimes the unexpected happens (Price) and so their move is a good one, indeed.
