    Georgiev is in Rangers' Long-Term Plans?

    Paraphrased from the January 9 edition of 31 Thoughts the podcast:

    Friedman: "In a perfect world, Lundqvist has one year left on his contract. You assume that's it. Two years from now, it's Georgiev and Shesterkin, right? That's your team."

    Marek: "But there's three goalies there."

    Friedman: "Well, that's what I'm saying. In a perfect world, that's what you're doing."

    Marek: "In a perfect world, the three-goalie system works."

    Friedman: "Yes."

    Marek: "In the real world, it doesn't."

    Friedman: "Well, even [Eric] Comrie last week when I did the piece with him, he talked about how tough it was to have three goalies in Arizona. This is New York. Imagine what that's like with all the media. The other thing is, you have to make sure it works with this kid. He has one start. You never know. He's gonna have his ups and downs, he's gonna have his tough moments. You've got time. I do know of one team — I know they were looking at [backup] goalies — and I said “have you thought about Georgiev,” and they said they don’t think he’s available because he’s in the Rangers long-term plans. We’ll see. I don’t think anybody is untradeable, but I do think the Rangers do look at this with a long-term view.”

    This has to make you wonder if Henrik had a change of heart about leaving.

    So Shesty and Georgiev as the starter/backup for years to come?
    We've seen a trend of young backups leaving the organization to go become starting goalies. I wonder if the same can be said about Georgiev.

    Makes me think the Shesty callup is "managing out" Lundqvist.

    He was OK splitting starts. Will he be OK playing 25 games? For how long?

    Im a big believer in having a 1 and 1a goalie situation. the days of 70 starts are over imho. However for as much as I love Georgiev, I feel he is more of a 1 rather than a 1a. That being said as it looks like Igor is the real deal and that realistically Hank not going anywhere for 1-1/2 years you really have no choice but to move Georgy.

    But this is just another case where handing out 8 year no move/trade deals to 32 year olds should be a fireable offense.

    Not arguing but what do you do with Hank then? Can't send him down.

    Three guy rotation maybe. 20 starts Hank, 30 starts Georgie and 30 Shesty? Not ideal by any means.

    I think they're forcing him into asking him for a trade.

    I do too. It’s the right move.

    This. I can't think he'd be forced into a trade. He may want to wrap it up.

    And if he doesn't want to? I mean the ball is completely in his court. Plus, it's not like that can say, "If you retire we'll put you on the coaching staff." They already have a goalie coach.

    They did with Drury.

    Or they can buy him out. It saves 3m next season, cost 1.5m the following.

    Hank sitting on the bench listening to IGOR chants has to have some kind of effect on him.

    I still think Georgiev gets moved at or by the deadline. I just don't see the 3 goalie thing being a legit option. I would be shocked if they took that route.

    It's not a legit option. They have something in mind. Could be protecting Georgie from injury or just letting Hank know his time is up. I dunno what it is, but 3 goalies isn't the plan for the next season and a half.

    Can’t carry 3 goalies

    They want Hank to retire or ok a deal.

    He should ok a deal. His playing time is cut and he has no shot of winning a Cup here in next 18 months.

    Just as a talking point, Colorado has the cap space and even a 38 year old Lundqvist is an upgrade over Grubauer IMO who has limited playoff experience.
    I like Grubauer and he’s done well for them and even won a Cup as a backup but I don’t think they win a Cup with him.

    They’d have to figure out money if Hank agreed and Avs would have to figure out what to do with either Grubauer or Francouz.

    Again just a talking point but I think there’s some teams out there who would have interest

    I can see one team taking him on and they're in our division.
