    im confident in him doing just fine I just didn’t want Shesterkin out long term

    It’s likely good to see Georgiev increase his trade value too

    It was because he was playing better than Hank. So what choice was there? Even then he pulled his Geo shenanigans after a few games. He’s fine as a backup. He’s just can’t keep it up.

    Hoping Georgiev plays well for the next week, would potentially increase his value for a trade. Maybe to Buffalo :sarcasm:

    Who would be our backup? Kinkaid? And we'd need Igor to be fully healthy first.

    Unless the right deal comes along I wouldn't rush to trade Georgiev, considering that in a small sample size Shesty already has several injuries.

    Even at the top of his game Tim Thomas almost never played more than 55 games or so a season. Made the backup job that much more important.

    Georgiev cannot put together 3 good games. He always implodes within that time period. Will be no different now

    I think there's going to be a re evaluation period this offseason. Players are going to be offered a lot less. 10-20% less.

    It might work to our advantage long-term

    Buch 2-3 years @ $4.5M
    Chytil 3-4 years @ $2.5-3.0M
    Lindgren 4-5 years @ $3M
    Shesty 3-4 years @ $4-5M

    I dont expect a trade to be made this week. Likely in 2-3 weeks if it is going to be made during the season at all.

    And yes I would roll with Kinkaid as the backup. OR look around free agency or the league for one. Is Washington even using Craig Anderson? Im sure they could find one if Buffalo was happy to take Georgiev. You make it work.

    I do not see Buch signing anything but 1 year or a long-term contract. Short term 4.5M maybe. Anything longer than that is 5.5M+, probably 6M+.

    If Beniers was a Bergeron Lite, that is the perfect fit for the current Rangers Roster. I don't see him ending up here unless the pong pong balls bounce right again.

    And I don’t mind getting more 2nd or 3rd round picks. They can be packaged for other assets.

    Kreider - Zib - Buch
    Bread - Chytil - Kakko
    LAF - Strome - Kravtsov
    Lemmy - Bennett - Virtanen
    Blackwell, Rooney

    Gauthier plus an add for Virtanen
    Howden plus an add for Bennett
    Digi for a late pick/Solid AHLer
    If VEgas really wants Zib, make them pay. Otherwise --- WAIT

    Next offseason, analyze, regroup and see what to do. There will be nice opportunities

    It won’t happen again. About everyone lost their ever living minds when the Rangers won it last draft.

    If we’re outside the top 10, I would consider trading the pick to a rebuilding team for immediate help.

    No reason to add to Gauthier or Howden for those players, and I'd rather have Gauthier right now than Virtanen. At least GOAT is showing some progress.

    In either case, the cap doesn't work, unless you're thinking these are offseason moves. Still, I'm not sure it's worth spending ~5 mil for 2 players who have a combined 7 points in 44 games this year. It might be worth taking a chance on one of them, but not both.

    This year's draft class is pretty bad. Next year is amazing with Wright and Lambert.

    WE actually shortly will have have cap space considering many of our theoretical ELC bonuses will not be attained...
    2 reclamation projects (albeit pedigree touted) for a bit lower expectation players means we gotta add a little bit...
    BUT... MOAR SANDPAPER. AND A REAL 4th line
    And - for reference - I really like GOAT

    Disagree. Both players want out of their respective teams, both have higher cap hits, and both are older. Their draft pedigree means nothing at age 24, and both Howden and GOAT were 1st rounders themselves, albeit later in the round.

    I would be willing to roll the dice trading Howden for one of them, but I'm not adding. If neither team accepts that, then there's no deal to be made.

    What does a Mika to VGK look like at this point? Straight up for Krebs? Maybe a 2nd rounder added? Rough to move him at such low value compared to where he was at the end of last season.

    It's a hard deal to make. Vegas has almost no cap flexibility and they don't have many short-term contracts to send back to the Rangers to offset the money. They did just finally put Lehner on LTIR, so that opens up room, but not sure for how long. There's no clear information on what's going on with him so no telling when he'll be back.

    If I were Gorton i'd ask for Glass/Krebs, a pick, and a contract to offset the money in exchange for Zib at a reduced hit. Not sure I'd get it though given how hes been playing, how he seems to keep getting banged up, and the fact that he'll be a FA at the end of next year.

    I just don't see Mika having any value right now in any deal in the eyes of another club looking to add that last piece for a playoff run ...I'm sure that there are better options out there for clubs looking to upgrade offense......

    Howden should relocate to Seattle and save us all the trouble

    I personally rate Barkov hugger than Eichel, am I alone in that? Better 2-way player, more of a leader, lefty (would be useful on the PP), amazing defensively, only 25 years old. Way better career high than Eichel.

    I'd rather sign him as a UFA or trade for him than trade for Eichel.
