I think the Rangers will target a blue-chip netminder at some point in the next 18 months. Whether that's at the draft table next June or via trade remains to be seen. Goalie prospects don't hold a ton of value, so the Rangers may very well wait a few years and try and poach a young up-and-comer as Hank starts to get older. Similar to what Tampa Bay did this season with Lindback.
Yeah, and if you ask me we have done a pretty poor job drafting goalies and developing them. There are plenty of raw goalies out there who Allaire could work with, and IMO, the guys we have seen in HFD lately and in pre-season are down right C-tier talents. I am suprised that we waste time on what quite frankly is nothing but crap-talents.
