New York Rangers - All Time Draft Roster

With the Draft coming shortly, Let's have some fun. Similar to the All Decade team polls i did earlier in the year, we will build an all time Rangers roster with only Ranger Draft picks.

The first poll will be for Goaltender...please pick two.

At first I thought the tie was between Mike Richter and Jason LaBarbera.

Another thing, why do we have a goalie on here who only played... Literally like 2 games for us in Vitali Yeremeyev?

I personally feel that Lundqvist is the better of the 2, and it could be "New Shiny Toy" Syndrome but Lundqvist has had to pull of some real crazy saves, not that Richter never had to but that ontop of the fact that at the end of it all when we compare personal careers i feel that Lundqvist will win out.

This is not a slight to Richter in any way who is known to be one of the internationally most clutch goalies and produced one of the best saves, in the highest pressure moment, against one of the best breakaway artists with everything on the line.

Lundqvist and Richter. Lundqvist is #1, in my opinion. He's going to pass all of Richter's records.

Richter and Lundqvist. Hell of a ****ing combo.

Lundqvist will set the Rangers goalie records and IMO go down as the greatest Ranger goalie, he just needs a ****ing Cup!

#1 Richter
#2 Lundqvist

For all that Richter has achieved, for his superior athleticism, he is a firm #1 IMO. Lundqvist might dethrone him but as of today, here in the present, Richter cannot be denied. Lundqvist meanwhile has never made it out of the 2nd round of the playoffs. He is awesome but these are the facts. If we are ranking on potential than is Derek Stepan our #1 center?

tough one but i went w/ richter. if lundqvist shows me a cup then i'll reevaluate (may not be fair but that's the way it is)

also i think it was a bit more difficult to be good, if not great, in richter's era because of the smaller equipment

I think I'd have to go with Lundy. I didnt get to see Richter a lot because I was pretty young but I am not saying Richter was a horrible goalie, I just feel Lundy is a better goalie, overall based on what I did see and stats. Richter only had 3-30+ win seasons. Lundqvist has 5 in his first 5 seasons. Richter only had 5 winning record seasons. 8 losing record seasons. Granted he was hurt but still..

Im not saying Richter sucks. He did achieve a lot but Lundy is surely going to surpass a lot of what Richter did. Maybe have 1 cup(God, I hope....) but Lundy will fly by his records.

This is very bias, I know but I can only give my opinion out based on what I seen. I only saw Richters downfall towards his career.

not the best of polls

better to have to choose 1

I picked richter because until Henke wins a cup he is just another great goalie (gold medals for sweden don't count in the NHL)

richter is one for the ages

meaningless stat imho.

base it on their careers as a whole, not a few games at the end of every season.

Henriks SV% his first 5 seasons are:
.922
.917
.912
.916
.921

Richters:
.904
.903
.901
.886
.910

Richter has never hit .920 for a season...Henrik has done it twice already.

Lundqvist has already equaled the # of shutouts that Richter had in his career.

Richter has never seen 2,000 shots in a season. Lundqvist has already seen that twice.

You're selling Lundqvist very very short.

Again, Im only ranking em as close as I do because of Richters longevity/sustainability. If I were to ignore that, it would be Henrik Lundqvist by a lot.

Stats be damned, if he doesn't win a cup here Lundqvist will be long forgotten.
