    Since I am Getting Long in the Tooth Myself...

    It pains me to say this but the old guy should be the odd guy out.




    Go with the kids in goal.

    Good thing they've got a 24-year-old prince in waiting, then, eh?

    Both you can have both. The NHL is a tandem league now. They'd be incredible together.

    Hank is purely a backup at this point. I get that moving Georgie is likely but it's not actually the right move.

    The right move is to move hank's 7m dollars -- how, I don't know.

    Of course!

    Seems like this {Our} team just does not want to play for our king anymore!

    Not for long, you can't. Tandem goaltending may be the key, but it's still subject to the salary cap.

    And they still have a load of high-performing goalie prospects behind them.

    You have two 23 yo NHL goalies right now. Fuck the prospects. You could pay them both what you're paying Hank.

    No, you can't. It'll be offset for a bit, but Georgiev is already due a new deal. Even with a short-term bridge, you're still probably paying him $3-4 million next year and $7 million after.

    If they're both legitimate starters, you're talking about $15 million+ in some kind of fucked up "dual starters" role. It's untenable. Trade Georgiev. Transition from Hank to Shesterkin in real-time. Keep growing your prospects, the same as you did with Shesterkin and Georgiev.

    Are you really gonna move a player because you're worried about what it's gonna cost in 4, 5, or 6 years from now, after they both earn two more contract?

    Find a way to move Hank now, keep the kids somehow and next year if one must go then trade one then.

    No, I'm gonna move him because his value is incredibly high, he's probably 4x the cost of Shesterkin next year, and I'd rather not shit on the franchise when an easier solution is staring me in the face.

    Georgie is hot and doing a good job, but Shesty is still 10 times the talent. You move Georgie because he has more value than Henrik. You don't need two star starting goalies, you have to choose one and have a backup. Henrik is a good backup.

    If if this post wasn't true....how do you "move" Hank?
    In 1994 I thought I could die in peace...now I'm hungry again.

    You don't. Georgiev gets traded, Hank stays. Shestorkin becomes your starter/split with Hank. When Hank's contract expires you either re-sign him for 1-2 years at minimal dollars to be Shesty's backup or you let him retire and you move up Huska.

    By approaching him honestly about the idea of retirement.
