Is he the Michigan kid?

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Damn, now they are a lock for the cup next year.

Straight from wikipedia:

Álvaro "Al" Montoya (born February 13, 1985 in Glenview, Illinois) is a professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing in the Toronto Maple Queefs

The stuff you can find on there...

Didn't he get beat up by DiPietro several years ago?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I think when they meet, Montoya will win the rematch. :P

I love this line from the TSN article:

"Last week, Rick DiPietro went down with face and knee injuries after engaging in a fight with Brent Johnson of the Pittsburgh Penguins."

LOL, I only saw 1 hit, DiPi is way too soft.

That's gotta be the worst call you can get from an agent these days... "hey Montaya... good news, you get to play in the NHL... bad news, it's in hockey hell..."

Hording all the goalies. It's a smart move. Supply and Demand. Their plan is to get all the goalies then trade one each for a star player each since every team will need a goalie.

I didn't know he was still playing hockey. I remember him getting a lot of hype but I guess it hasn't worked out so far.

IIRC Montoya had a really bad hand injury that derailed his career for quite some time. He used to be a blue-chip prospect in the Rangers' system.
