Talbot cannot be the official starter. You just can't have that given what Hank has done for so long and how much he is making. What Slats should've done was waited. But i think Dolan and the marketing people pushed it.
Unless Talbot wins the Cup for us, Hank will always be the #1 here for the foreseeable future. I just hope it doesn't become the Luongo of the East.
Such a losers mentality. The Rangers should be striving to win the Cup, not keep their sentimental figures to please the fans. The fans should care more about the team winning than rooting for their favorite player.
