Lightning goaltender Marc Denis has joined the Montreal Canadiens.
EN Says: This is an odd signing for both parties. With a franchise player like Carey Price in place another solid young goaltender in Jaroslav Halak backing him up, why would the Habs feel it necessary to bring in a reclamation project like Denis?
A former first-round pick of the Avalanche, Denis was seen as the future in net in both Columbus and Tampa Bay but never lived up to expectations. He was a colossal bust in Tampa Bay. Obviously beggars can't be choosers. Denis should be happy anyone is interested in his servies, but what kind of chance is he going to get behind Price and Halak?
