Yes yes yes.....No.1 because Kane and Toews are just getting started and have many successful years ahead of them. No.2 because I think Lundqvist is overrated.

So the Rangers get a year out of Toews and Kane at a good price and then will have to pay them about Gomez/Drury $$ anyway thus negating the salary dump (yes I know they're better than Gomez/Drury) and leaving them without their #1 goalie.
Yeah, makes sense........

This seems like another veiled attempt by a Devils fan to undermine Lundqvist's importance to the team. Either that or you are somehow related to Valliquette.

Rangers do not have any decent goalie prospects in their system, so if Valli can't handle the starting job, they are screwed. And with Renney's defensive system, I have a feeling Toews and Kane's productivity would decrease.

If goalies are overrated as you say, I guess you are including that guy in your avatar and user name. Might as well just go with Clemmensen and get rid of Brodeur since goalies are overrated and don't matter.

ROFL dude do you watch hockey?? Goalies are overrated?? Goalies win cups. Look at the last decade and see which goalies won the cup. If you have no goalie you win **** all. You might be good during the season but in the playoffs you're going anywhere without a really good goalie. Look at Ottawa. For 5-7 years they were top 2 in the East but once playoff time rolled around they were screwed because Lalime sucks. If Ottawa had Brodeur or Luongo during that span they would have won a few cups for sure.

Bud, I don't want to get into a war here but don't say goaltending is overrated. Goaltending is the most important position in all of sport, that and a quarterback.

No. Goalies like Henrik don't grow on trees.

Kipper for a 2nd, Huet for a 2nd, Roloson 1st...I'm pretty sure aquiring a serviceable goalie isn't going to bankrupt your team. You get rid of two ****** contracts for two great young players, who wouldn't make that trade?

Was that supposed to be an insult? the way a team is built is far more important than any goalie. Do you watch hockey? Do you watch the devils play? theres a reason their in first with scott clemmenson. It's called players and solid goaltending. Solid goaltending with freaking scott Clemmenson!!!!!! Which further makes my case that goalies are overrated!!!!! Like i said, goaltending is overrated, almost every goalie in this league is good to amazing.
