Guys on the air on many channels were raving about Georgiev. I never heard that about Talbot or Raanta. Say it again. Love him but Hank is going to have a hard time hanging onto a job. I'd like to see him retire. Then work with BA and soak up all his knowledge which I'm sure he has to a certain extent and become our next great goalie coach. If he is into that.

I wouldn't be so sure of that... not due to his play but due to the numbers game.

You have three goalies.
You have two spots.
One (Hank) can't go to Hartford.
One (Shesty) has a European assignment clause which means he can't spend too much time in Hartford
Two (Georgiev and Shesty) are waivers exempt.

Unless something like a trade or IR for Hank happens, Georgiev is going to have to spend time in Hartford unless they want to carry 3 goalies at the NHL level, which is good for neither of the two youngsters.

Shesty is going to have to out play Georgie...I wouldnt dare mess with Georgie...The kid is legit....and is our best goalie right now. You def dont get rid of a 23 year old to accommodate a 37 year old. Henrik needs to make a decision here and I can bet the FO isnt all rainbows and unicorns with him

Georgie has done well and has promise. A few rivers to cross. A full work load as a number one then the crucible of the playoffs or just a playoff series. Having Hank around may not be too bad but his time is coming to an end. It would be a fairy tale ending if lightening were to strike in 2021! Shesty needs to prove the insane KHL stat are not fake news. Shesty was sat down in international tournaments and in KHL playoffs so not sure what we have.

One step at a time. He's at the bottom of the 3 goalie totem pole, and this is still Lundqvist's team.... you don't have to like it, but Georgiev hasn't earned anything other than respect as a legit NHL calibre goalie.

Igor needs to show us what he has in prospect camp, then Traverse City, and we'll go from there. He'll no doubt get some preseason action in..... after that it's up to him to see how hard the decisions will be.

As it stands, he starts the season in Hartford.... his clause gives him the opportunity to leave for Russia any time he likes, but good luck getting a phone call from another NHL team with that kind of attitude and impatience. It's on him to force management's hand, and seize the chances he's given as they come to him..... injures can and will happen to one or both of Henk and/or Georgie.

The hype is real, though. If you're just looking at stats, I don't blame you for being skeptical.... but go find some tape of this guy. He is Hasek-like.... Richter-like..... athletic goalie.

Lundqvist, and Georgiev are positional.... They play the angles, and the puck hits them.... Shestyorkin hunts down the puck and uses his athleticism and reflexes to make the saves.... completely different style than Georgiev. He's exciting to watch. It'll be interesting to see what and how Allaire refines his skills

I could've put this video in either player's thread, but Shesty's is the one I clicked





Craig Button pumping both players' tires a bit. I'm trying to curb my enthusiasm, but we could/should have 2 Calder candidates in Kravtsov and Kakko if everything plays out as advertised.

I also enjoy his confidence that Shesty is not only a NHL calibre goalie NOW, but that he's ready to take "top full time #1" role....

If Shestyorkin proves better than both Lundqvist and Georgiev this season, and The Rangers make the playoffs, Shesty could certainly be in that Calder talk, too....

Exciting stuff to think about

Button's just one opinion, his is not really mainstream consensus opinion, he's been high on a number of NYR picks and prospects for a year or two. Maybe he's angling for a front office job

Someone posted this on one of the NY Rangers FB Fan pages I'm in. https://www.thehockeybible.net/nhl/henrik-lundqvist-opens-up-on-his-...

Where do you think he would go? Some say Calgary. Team that made the playoffs with highest GA was San Jose. Who's knocking on the playoff door next year?

Thoughts?

I'd love to see him go to Calgary or the AV's. He's still got one run in him left. The Rangers really need to go with Georgiev and Shesterkin next season.
