"I had no hard feelings. It was great to be drafted by such a great team," Montoya said of the Rangers. "But at the same time, this is where I am now."
On whether he has something to prove...
"Oh, sure," he said. "Every day you step on the ice. A lot of those guys are my former teammates. It will be good, but once you get down to it, you are playing just to win another game, basically."
Montoya is 7-2-3 in 13 games played for the Islanders, with a 2.09 goals against average and a .930 save percentage. He is expected to start tonight against the Rangers.
...i know Montoya was a bust for the Rangers and is now playing for their rival, but for the same reason I still root for a guy like Malhotra, he was a first round pick that I was hoping would be the future of the Rangers in goal, unfortunately for him a little known guy named Henrik Lundqvist stole the show. If Montoya can keep this up I think it will have worked out for all involved in the end. Sadly that means for the Islanders as well.
