Yup. Even with all his praise and love, I still think he is underrated amongst the fanbase. It's going to be a long and arduous journey without him when he goes.

Edit-Also, the Prince Chad thread will go down in legend. Forever a measuring stick for every "jump the gun thread" since.

Knowing this organization, chances are good our real next goaltender is coming via free agency/trade. And if we're drafting someone to develop, by the time Hank is ready to retire Jeff Malcom will probably be 33. If the team develops a new goaltender to take over the kid is probably 16-17 right now and won't be expected to start until he's 24-25

Well, I don't think Skapski is a future #1 but I could be wrong. Goalies are tough to judge and they all develop differently. Thatcher Demko who plays for the USNTDP U-18 (late 95 birthday) is a goalie I'm pretty high on that is eligible for next year's draft. I think he'll be highly sought after, but he's worth it. Going the NCAA route too, which is something Sather has shown he likes. If you've watched any of the recent U-17/U-18 tournaments you've seen how great Demko can be.

All I'm saying with this is I don't think Malcom is the future, and I don't think the future is a player who is out of junior hockey yet. Malcom's already 24, Lundqvist is only 31.

Predicting where we will be getting our next starting goalie is more difficult than predicting any other position. More than half of the starters in the league were either late picks or undrafted.

That being said, I'm fairly confident that Malcolm isn't going to be the guy to replace Lundqvist, if only because he's not going to be young by the time Lundqvist retires.

If he is that good, why is he a street FA and not a top draft pick or at least a heavily recruited player?

He is often on and off. One day he'll be amazing and other times he doesn't look to be even a backup in the AHL. The person who wrote the article has too big of high praise for him, but we'll see how he develops.
