Swapping Biron for Hedberg could save some cap, but I'd probably rather have Biron.

at least he's willing to take the 2 year deal though, that means it will get done at some point.

True dat. Either way would work cap wise though

So then I assume RB was comparing Steps to AP?

Because they are not anywhere near comparables if that's the case.

I probably missed the reason, what is going on with Biron?

I know he missed the first day of practice, but I am hearing so much rumblings about it.

Cliff note version?

Especially after RB confirmed Hedberg is an evil spy from across the river.

Realistically though, we're a contender. We need a competent back-up. Biron is perfect for that role.

Rumor around the boards is he convinced Stepan to hold out, so Sather sabotaged Marty's wifes furniture store with his cigar buddies.

Marty had to lysol the **** out of the place. It's still smoky in there though. And Stepan is still unsigned.

I can't imagine a scenario where replacing Biron with Hedberg results in significant cap savings.

Hedberg is not an NHL goaltender at this point.

Remember when we had Valiquette, this would possibly be worse. Lundqvist will need his rest especially with the extended Olympic season. You can't play him 70+ NHL games this year.
He'll be at nearly 100 games when the playoffs roll around.

Keep Biron or sign a backup for 1 million that is worthy.

Hedberg would be the poorest management decision of the summer.

Well, potentially second. We'll see if Beaver has any injuries when this season is over.

Derick sounded like he wanted to slap someone during the Arniel questions.

Sounds like Kreider is going to be a big part of this thing w/ the drive the net, net front thing.

Brassard did a good job calling Arniel after he was hired and saying "no hard feelings" so they're cool.

THe question were kind of asinine still

Jumping from talk of prior hostilities between the two to

"What about Arniel makes you think that he will be a good coach here?"

Why is it the players fault? Stepan is seeing everyone around him signing for big dollars why should he give in. He has already said yes to a Bridge deal let the thing play out. He has better numbers than Kadri, Henrique and Hodgson. The kid is worth a lot more to the Rangers those guys are to thre teams!!
