The Rangers made that trade because Mike Richter's was essentially over. He never played again.
Faulty memory on my part.

I don't think it was just that Richter's career was essentially over--they weren't sure but it looked as if he were done for that season anyway. It was a move made out of desperation more than anything.

In any case with Lundqvist not 100% and a condensed season due to the Olympics--the Rangers were figuring Biron for 20 games anyway. A big question is can Cam Talbot handle that? Can he handle more if Henrik's got an injury problem?
