Why would a legit FA NCAA goalie want anything to do with NY, there is no room at the inn? If NYR want to add to their goalie roster they must draft one.
Talbot will be UFA after next season and if next season is anything like this year he might move along to somewhere else. I don't see him necessarily as a major roadblock. He's also an advertisement for the Rangers ability to take an unknown goalie from an obscure college program (Alabama-Huntsvile) and turn him into a legit NHL goalie. And then there's Benoit Allaire who is among the top goalie coaches around. IMO the Rangers should be an attractive destination for free agent goalies who aren't exactly ready to step in at the NHL level.
