Mash is probably more ready right now. Just because Yogan is playing good hockey at the AHL level, doesn't mean he's NHL ready. Give it another year for him. His ability to protect the puck with his body while skating fast isn't going to work against guys like Staal, Girardi and McD in the NHL. He won't play against these guys, but other teams have good defenders and they will stop him right now. He needs more polish, but he's getting better quickly.

I've been saying that for a while, and I think the Rangers confirmed my evaluation by giving Talbot a one-way contract in the second year of his extension when Biron's contract ends.

He's very good. He's the team MVP. In the large majority of games, he's one of the top Whales. He should get the "Extra Effort" award too.
