Say what you want but i dont see a better goalie out there. Rinne had 1 good year, Tim Thomas and Luongo play for an outstanding team. Id say miller is the only one who is neck and neck with lundqvist for best in the league.

Hell no would the ranger trade lundqvist for just one of Carter or Giroux. First carter is a perenial 60pt player. I would love Giroux but it would take more than just him sorry. By the way, lets see what happens with Richards this offseason before making any remarks about the rangers center positions. We do still have Anisimov, Stepan, and Boyle. They may not be #1 centers but they are very good #2 centers.

Like i said before, this is the trade i would propose..

Rangers Trade:
Lundqvist
Boyle

Flyers Trade:
Giroux
Carter/Richards
Absolutely not. Under no circumstances do you get Giroux and Carter/Richards for Lundqvist and Boyle. Never.
