    Got a shitload of goalies in the system. Hopefully one of them turns into something special.

    I'd be curious to see what happens with Huska. He's talented but can be easy for shooters to solve. Chances are he'll have the starting job in Maine or the backup gig in Hartford. I don't see the team keeping any of Halverson, Nell or Tokarski.

    They don't need to be special, just reliable.

    Well sure. It's all but guaranteed that the next goalie won't ever be better than Hank.

    I'm just hopeful, we have an NHL starter in the mix -- Georgiev currently has the inside track.

    Shesty will be better than Hank.

    Considering Hank is the best goalie to ever wear a Ranger sweater, and Shesty hasn't played a single NHL game, that's a high expectation.

    You'll have to excuse him. He's Russian.

    U think Lundqvist is better than Giocomin?

    good goalie with longest tenure but not the best all-time to wear rangers jersey. Plant, Sawchuk were the greatest to ever play hockey and rangers.

    Huska signing can be for the future expansion draft. Rangers will have to leave a goalie unprotected for the expansion draft. Figuring Shestyorkin will not have to be protected, and Georgiev possibly traded to get more assets next season, that leaves Huska as the goalie to be left unprotected.

    Which are?

    Hank is one of the best goalies to ever play the game, let alone play for the Rangers. Had he won a SC it wouldn’t even be a debate.

    Comparing goalies that played during a 6 team era to goalies playing now is bizarro world.

    Pretty much my point. They're all better now, playing against better shooters.

    Sawchuck had a brilliant career, but he only played 8 games for the Rangers before he was impaled by a barbecue grill in a drunken fight with Ron Stewart. I don't even think of him as even having really played for NYR.
