Perfect back-up goalie, we are pretty fortunate to have him. I was fully expecting Biron to test the UFA market to possibly get a starting gig somewhere, but if he's back, that's excellent news.

Both goals Marty's fault right? Or do we expect him to save 9 outta 10 breakaways like Lundqvist does? You can go crunch all the #'s you want if it makes you feel better about your exaggerations. Biron has not been solid lately but that alone does not tarnish an otherwise good season from him. No amount of "What have you done for me lately" attitude will change that.

Didn't you also recently characterize one of Hagelin's recent games as "terrible" IIRC? You seem to have a knack for the over-the-top characterizations.
How dare you look beyond stats and use your brain. That's not fair to inferno's debate style case in point:

At this point in his career he will never ever start anywhere,imo.Then again i thought Vokun and theodore were done and apparently I was wrong about that.

I'd be glad to re-sign Marty. He plays his role and plays it very well, on top of being a team guy and well-liked in the room.

Jim Cerny is close with Marty Biron. They do those videos together. Cerny said during one of his chats(I think it was last week)that Biron would be back.

Biron wants to stay in NY. He's got his family and son growing up here

I'm not really surprised. Everyone seems comfortable with the situation and he looks like he found a good home and a sweet gig.

Dammit.

His age caught up to his weakness, 5 hole, and it really became a problem. Teams figured this out in dec and he was brutal since then.

Really wished we would cut ties.

Since December wasnt his Save % below .900? Something crazy like that.

Why would anyone want him back? Sure hes a great guy, let him be an assistant coach for the Rangers. I'd like to have a backup we can rely on. Biron is clearly passed his time..

Id take Gustavsson over Biron to be honest.

Or a young replacement for Lundqvist...after Hank not much depth...no future young goalie prospects...maybe Missaien (sp)...I hope they draft a goalie this year but not all great goalies get drafted early..

I honestly don't really see that big of a deal. He had a couple of bad starts but he was very good the rest of the year. We don't really need a whole lot out of him to be honest.

if they lost Biron I would say sure to Gustavsson but he's not as proven as Marty.........I just think a back up G needs to be a great team guy and Biron is great in that role. Can we agree on that?

I can definitely agree on that.

He was played a lot the first 2/3 of the season. Sure he only played 21 games, but he played most of those in the first 60.

If they drop his games to 18, and spread them out more, I would be more inclined to bring him back.

Yeah! If you look at him on the bench, he's always active. Talking to guys, giving advice. He's almost like an extra coach on the bench

all 'backup' goalies that are better doesn't do us much good...rask will be the #1 this year with thomas taking the year off or being traded and van is looking to move luongo so schneider can be the #1 so they really aren't 'backups'

but as alternatives to biron we should only be looking at guys that are 1)available and 2) have low cap hits cause we don't have the space to be wasting on a backup.

harding is a ufa and only made $700k but i'm not sure i can see he is better than biron...and don't see enroth or greiss being good enough to justify trading assets for them over just signing biron

How about getting the other Marty to back up Lundqvist?

I would sooner have Gustavsson than Biron especially if he can be signed for a Million or less .He is young...Swedish and should improve being around the King . Heck...didn't he shut us out last season in a game at MSG ??? I'm just not a big fan of Biron...he was bad while playing in Philly too IMO . I would be scared if the King ever goes down for a month or so...

Luongo.

But seriously...I don't think Biron is anything special...I think Clemmensen and B. Johnson are better...personally, if you don't have a backup that you'll put in a playoff game when The King is having a bad day, then don't spend needlessly for 20 regular season starts. If Henrik goes down, the Rangers will have to get a starter elsewhere anyway because Biron won't lead us to the playoffs over an extended period.

Biron's cap hit was 875k. He won't get much of a raise on that.

With Biron getting his share of games, we were 1st in the east and 2nd in the league in the regular season, which is the only time he will play. If we need our backup in the playoffs, it won't matter who we have. The only way to get a better backup is to develop one.
