    Mazanec hasn't been good. 2-2, 3.53, .859. And he has looked shaky, too. I assume they just want to get Georgiev some action and plan on rolling with Hank until the schedule picks up.

    OK, but at some point they're going to have to play a backup.

    A couple of years ago, the Predators would recall Jussi Saaros every time they wanted their backup to start a game and would then re-assign him back to Milwaukee whenever they didn't need him for that. I was thinking the Rangers might do that this year, but then they started the season with Georgiev up.

    We talked about it during offseason how Georgiev should be able to get enough games between NHL and AHL to continue his development. Getting send to AHL if he became Hank's backup was addressed then too, so it shouldn't be surprising. We should expect more of this throughout the season.

    Anytime the Rangers have multiple days off, a game or two, then multiple additional games off, it will be Hank. And if this overlaps a weekend, Georgiev should go down and pick up a couple starts. So yeah, this is expected and should continue.

    I think I'd rather have Tokarski up but that is not, as they say, the hill I would choose to die on.

    I don't think it matters who joins the team during practice. When the Rangers play again, this weekend, Georgiev will be back on the team

    Pack have a Friday night game followed by a 4 p.m. game Saturday in Toronto. Rangers play Sunday night at home. You could easily get Georgiev two starts and then have him back in New York Saturday night to backup Sunday.

    Of course, if you did that, and Georgiev was pressed into duty, he'd be playing three straight days. Maybe not ideal. I could actually see them rolling with Mazanec as the #2 on Sunday then making the transaction after the game. I mean if Lundqvist gets pulled we're probably ****ed for that game regardless of what Mazanec does, or if Lundqvist gets hurt then we have problems more serious than one game against Calgary.

    Anyway, it will be kinda fun to see how they handle this all year. They should let Georgiev use his own his own frequent flyer numbers. :laugh:

    Not unexpected and I suspect we’ll see similar approaches throughout the year.

    It’s almost easy to forget that Georgiev hasn’t even played 50 combined games in North America yet. The kid needs playing time.

    I want no part of Mazanec starting. He blows.

    This is fine if it's just to get Georgiev some work.

    MM saves <86% of the shots he faces? This must be a joke. How is he even in the AHL?

    another prospect devalued and possibly ruined by Quinn and fake rebuild.

    He has been a decent AHL goalie. His current numbers are based on 4 starts and his last one he allowed 6 on 22 shots IIRC. So he's really not that bad.

    Good move for Georgiev's development, but I'd much prefer if he just stayed with the big club and got ~30 starts. The media have been harping on Quinn's listening to Hank and allowing Hank to start himself in back-to-backs, but that doesn't mean it's actually a good idea. There's no reason Hank needs to getting 60 starts this year.

    I would too, I don't really see any reason the NHL teams needs Georgiev to be the back-up.

    Why not Tokarski? Mazanec sucks.

    Did you bother to read the thread? It's unlikely Mazanec plays. This is just so Georgiev can get in two AHL games before the Rangers next play.
