I don't care what position they play.

4 years, not six

Look around the NHL recently, best tenders, no matter where they are from have started full time work 4 years from their draft.

I like that notion.
This. I'm all about Thrower or Colberg, but when 28 pops up, those guys are gone, and a goalie is BPA - a goaltender it is. Henrik would be 35 - let's say he is still healthy and productive - his workload would need to be lightened considerably at that point. I know Marty just played very solid hockey as a 40 year old, but we can't simply expect Henrik to do the same. Would it be terrible to have a Rask waiting in the wings? I'd rather not have the post-Richter saga again.

This.

If the Ranger brass feels like Subban or Vasilevski will end up being a great goalie and they're BPA available on the board, then you TAKE him.

I wouldn't be surprised if we went after Jankowski. High risk, high reward in a draft it seems the Rangers aren't too high on anyway.

Agreed, to an extent, don't think the Rangers target a goaltender in any way, I think they will target the best player available based upon their evaluation criteria. I think their evaluation criteria very often do not put goaltending at the top and there is always opportunities to pick up what you need through trade if you talent pool is well stocked. If the BPA is another potential top 6 winger and Gordie Clark thinks he sees something others do not, go for it. And come the time that Henrik slows down (why are we really talking about this right now? The guy JUST turned 30, had his best regular and post season in his career and has many years in front of him) we either have a guy ready to go because he was BPA at some point or we trade some other assets for a guy that doesn't have a spot.
