Is there any truth to this? (Weekes signs with Rangers?)

The only young goalie in Hartford with any NHL future is Blackburn, who hasn't played in a hockey game for over a year and a half and is no where near NHL ready, maybe not even at full strength. I guess he is the young player you are talking about, because remember Weekes plays goalie. So you would have to bring up a young goalie. If your saying you want to bring Blackburn up and have him backup Dunham this season, then that's just stupid.
No, THAT makes no sense.
Blackburn is more NHL-ready than he's ever been, and how is LaBarbera not legit. He's arguably the best goalie in the NHL right now, and he could very well be a Roloson-esque late-bloomer. Isles Wade Dubliewicz wasn't taken seriously at all, and he exploded onto the scene last season.
