I hear ya...but the counter point is that he is on a stacked team and the rest of the League is chit


Blueshirt banter trash comments. Some random poster guesses right on a draft pick and now he's a Ranger insider.

The rest of the league isn't chit... He IS on a good team... no doubt... but as good as they are, they started out with a 3-2 record with Hellberg... and have gone 4-0 with Shestyorkin... 2 of the wins were shutouts....

It's the undeniable second best league in the world, and Shesty is one of, if not THE best goalie in that league.... if he keeps this pace, he will be...

They like Olof Lindbom, but goalies tend to take longer to develop... Igor is coming next year, so let's imagine the likely scenario of him being Lundqvist's backup at the begining of next season..... if we didn't draft Lindbom, our prospect pool would be EMPTY.

By the time Lindbom is NHL ready, Lundqvist will be retired, Shestyorkin will be starter with a few years NHL experience, and best case scenario we have a goalie controversy... for maybe a year or two, and then we can sell one for a premium!

I guess we could've drafted another freaking defenseman, or something, but they made a really smart decision to restock the goalie position while they had the chance.

Nothing is guarenteed for next year's draft.

Igor's KHL contract will expire at the end of the season. He will be 23 next season. Same age Hank was when he became our starter.

Not sure if you're referring to a specific trash comment or not, but there is truth to Shestyerkin's stats being inflated due to the team he plays on. (How much so, is a matter of debate).

This certainly is not to take away from his talents or his abilities or his status as the Rangers' top goaltending prospect, but many goaltending stats are heavily influenced by team and it's important to see his stats in context.

I totally agree with continuing to take goaltenders because they are so difficult to draft with any certainty, and you need to keep the pipeline stocked. It wasn't so long ago that people were thinking that Skapski or Halverson would be the heir apparent. Meanwhile, other unheraleded guys (Wall, Nell, Huska) have moved up the depth chart.

I have no problem with Lindbom as a player but my criticism of him was of draft position (and therefore the Rangers' draft strategy). Like Keane, Lindbom is a player I thought (many thought) could be drafted much later. So there's a bit of the Rangers leaving some value on the table by drafting him early.

Having said that it's water under the bridge at this point, I want them to draft smart but if he turns out to be good, it won't matter if he's a first rounder, a third rounder, or an undrafted FA.

Sorry rob but have to call this out, this is not true. Georgiev has a very good shot at backing up this year. Probably does not project to be a starter but he's young still. Huska started slow but had an incredible second half. Lindbom certainly helps add to the depth but it's not like the goaltending cupboard is bare. The Ragners have actually done a very good job managing the goaltending pipeline in the past 6-8 years or so.

My guess on Fogarty is that they may look at moving him in a minor league deal...a bit of playing time might give others a chance to see his play
