Canadiens General Manager Bob Gainey announced Monday the signing of goaltender Curtis Sanford to a one-year, two-way contract for the 2009-10 season. As per club policy, financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Read the rest of the Canadiens press release here.

Two thoughts off the top of my noggin right away.

I equate the name "Sanford" with terms like junkyard, rubble, salvage...comes from watching too many 1970's sitcoms I gather.

Second, if the Canucks upgraded their backup goaltending position by cutting Sanford loose and signing Andrew Raycroft, I wonder how much potential there is in the Habs new stopper.

Essentially he is replacing Marc Denis.

The question we all hope to never find out the answer to is: How many games can Sanford play in Montreal?
