Florida Panthers sign G Al Montoya to two-year deal

Cats add another option at backup to compete with Ellis.

After Dan Ellis performed pitifully in South Florida last season, Dale Tallon has gone out and gotten some competition for him, signing Al Montoya to a two-year deal with a cap hit of $1.05 million a year. With Roberto Luongo needing a rest here and there, Montoya does provide the Panthers with a viable backup option, who should be able to come in and do well enough for the team to win games, even without the No. 1 goaltender in net. This was a great signing, as the thought of Ellis getting consistent NHL starts is downright terrifying.
