Welcome goalie who will eat your children while they sleep!

Habs have announced the signing of goalie Curtis Sanford to a one-year, two-way deal. Financial terms of the deal yada yada.

In 19 games with the Canucks last year, Sanford posted a 7-8-0 record with a 2.59 GAA and .906 save%. Hey, that's alright. We'll just ignore the back spasms and groin that put him on IR. And we won't even mention his just-above Panger-esque stature.

With Marc Denis gone, Sanford will either be the number one guy in Hamilton or the backup to TFS after we package Jaro, Pleks, two defencemen and a prospect for a less zombie-like center. Or he's just a little insurance.

The mask comes from his nickname "The Sandman." Unfortunately he doesn't wear it anymore after he had a contest for fans to design his new mask last year. But if you think we're gonna pass up the chance to say "Sandman" so we can post the video below, you're crazy. Wake the fuck up.

The Sandman nickname would have gone well with what this team will do this season. ''Put us all to sleep''...i wonder are midgets like little children cause if they are we have 3 new ones which he could have for dinner. By the way check out the Metallica version of this song live with the San Fran Orchestra truly a masterpiece.

@Qless - hasn't gone anywhere officially yet, but he's a FA the Habs are not resigning (to my knowledge)

I know I shouldn't sprinkle crack on my cornflakes, but yet it happens now and again. My way of admitting to occasionally (1 's' or 2? Neither looks right) visiting Eklund's site. And if you can't find the unintended humour in his latest headline, then you're just not trying:

The Sanford Signing Domino

I didn't read on, but I'm sure it's interesting. I actually go there for Eric Engles. He writes some good stuff about the Habs from time to time.

Does this presage a trade?
