The Habs have signed free agent goalie and former Vancouver Canuck Curtis Sanford to a two-way, one-year deal. Sanford has a solid minor league record but things get a little patchy at the professional level. So what exactly is Bob Gainey planning? We could be meeting Carey Price’s new backup, the veteran meant to lead our young guys in Hamilton and/or a replacement for Jaroslav Halak in order to use him as trade bait for that last centre and winger that we need to complete our package.
I have to say, I’m pleased with the way things are shaping up so far and I’m interested to see where exactly this Sanford deal leads. When does the season start again?
