If we can keep LaBarbera then great, but you don't give him a job over two top prospects at this point.
LaBarbera is not a starting goalie in the NHL, and he's not going to be starting in Hartford this year which leaves two options - NYR backup or a trade. I think odds are he'll be moved, but time will tell.
Priority should go to the player who PLAYS the BEST! I know, I know ... we don't believe in rewarding effort and ACTUAL results, we give ice team according to whatever we feel like because we're the Rangers ... Hockey is different here.
