What would have happened if Rangers' management freaked out about how Lundqvist played in the 2006 playoffs (where he was terrible and pulled)?

Goalies are an enigma, especially younger ones. Reimer has showed a LOT of potential to grow into a very, very good goalie. Get him a tougher/superior defense, and he'll continue to provide excellent goaltending.
Sigh still being compared to guys who have had elite seasons?

All those tenders had diff opportunities. Howard was arguably ready in 07 but the wings didnt rush him. Miller could have been brought up earlier or played during the lockout year. Anyways all those tenders were great from the jump and haven't made big jumps. What y'all expect from Reimer....
