    Lindbom is irrelevant to the Blueshirts' roster until probably 2022 at the earliest. He's 17 years old, and it might be 10 years before we know if he's a legit NHL goalie. Cam Talbot didn't start an NHL game until he was 26, Raanta was 24. Granted, you can probably expect Lindbom to be ready before them with his draft status, but he's a long, long way off.

    With the goalie prospects the Rangers have, they could move him, but I doubt it. Prospect goalies don't have much value.

    Never hurts to have promising goalies in the system.

    I mean I'm only saying that, in my opinion, he's not an upgrade on the Stanley Cup winning goaltender and the Vezina candidates for this season. It's hardly saying the guy is done.
    He's definitely an upgrade on those teams. Just not worth replacing their current goalies with him, due to it being a waste of assets to trade for and to get rid of it sit in their current goalies. He's no doubt still a top 5 goalie in this league.

    My post wasn't directed to you, but more or less a group of people here as well as through out Rangers fandom.

    Gotcha. Let's agree to disagree on the upgrade bit. I don't think he would be, but he could still definitely be an asset to a team making a run for the cup.

    Well....hes not middle of the pack anymore
    When we had structure under torts Hank excelled, since then hes fallen off. Statistically he was one of the worst starters in the league, and your stats of danger give a good reason

    Of the 42 goalies who started at least 30 games, he was 19th in sv%. That's pretty squarely middle of the pack lol.

    The funny thing Future, is that I keep getting this eerie feeling that Hank is going to have one of those years where he stands on his head and makes this team look way better than they are this season. He'll make the All Star team, and at the same time keep us out of the top 5 picks for 2019.

    It just seems fitting!! =)

    I can SOOOO see that happening!!! LOL

    .....Especially with a new coach that has a solid type of defensive structure that supports defensemen a lot more. Yup, he's gonna have a "return to greatness" kind of year!! I think I'm gonna put Hank in the Brendan Smith boat on that comeback performer of the year!!!

    Well I mean he did that this year for like 30 games lol.

    He is still perfectly capable of carrying a team to the playoffs if the defensive structure in front of him is sound.

    I totally admire his unbelievable loyalty to this franchise but Jesus man, I wish we could get him a good chance at a Cup! The guy totally deserves it!

    Apart from this Browning guy? So on this Forum you can shit on players as long as it's not Hank ? This Browning guy would love it if Hank played at an elite level. Hockey is my game. Rangers are my team. I mowed the lawn during the Super Bowl because I really don't care much for other sports. To call me out as this guy, sounds like I am not in the been posting here for 5 yrs club, so my opinion doesn't carry any weight. Don't get me wrong, I'm not butthurt over it, I've just noticed a patronizing overtone by more then a few.

    Sorry. Bad phrasing on my part.
    I just meant to say that you were the only one being negative about him.

    That's a stretch to call that middle of the pack

    Hmmmmm, "true starters". Carey Price and Matt Murray both played 49 games. I'd call them true starters. That would put Hank 14th out of 24, with Hank facing the 2nd most high danger chances out of those 24.
