I just don't see the reasoning behind moving a top tier goalie in a compressed season for non impact pieces.
LA barely squeaked into the playoffs as it was and Biron is nowhere close to Lundqvist's level. Not two years ago the only reason the Rangers were even relevant is because Lundqvist damn near dragged them into 7-10th kicking and screaming. Philly managed to run the full gauntlet with Michael bloody Leighton. What of Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, Montreal, Boston? There are numerous teams who have a sharp decline between starter and backup goalies, yet they manage.
