"The Sharks trailed 3-2 after two periods despite outshooting the Kings 34-10. Los Angeles goalie Jason LaBarbera, a former Rangers prospect, made several terrific saves to foil high-quality scoring opportunities."
good for him, i'm glad he's starting the season strong...he should be the kings backup this year
ultimately this looks like it'll work out pretty well for everyone. it's only one preseason game but it looks like lundqvist shouldn't have a problem starting as the rangers backup (also based on him having a good camp too) so it works out well for the rangers to get their top goalie prospect in the mix, and it works well for labarbera to get his shot and for the kings to get a backup goalie who will hopefully play well for them.
but would rather see Lundqvist as a back-up, and do not think Labs is an NHL starter. Glad to see him doing well. He's worked his butt off from his fatter days while in the ECHL. He deserves a real shot.
Good for him. At least he was able to get out of the org before his career was ruined by being overlooked for too long. As has been mentioned, with the org being so high on the other 2 guys, there's no way he would have had a shot here. Holt... pay attention..... you're not just playing for a job in ny... you're also trying to earn a job on one of the other teams.
