I think well being seeing Henrik for the rest of the season, hes being playing great, and I think he can handle it. As for this flu bug, I think we should recommend Airborne to the Rangers.

What great numbers in the AHL? Valiquette has never been a starter there--unlike LaBarbera and Hirsch.

Yeah I remember that game. I think it was kind of a late season, meaningless game and the Rangers actually wound up winning. Valiquette said something along the lines of "I faced the Flyers in NHL 98 so I wasn't nervous" or something

Woohoo, 1000 posts! I have no life lol

Maybe the flu will sideline Renney, and Perry will make some smarter line changes. Weekes got injured from keeping his fat wallet in the wrong pocket while sitting on the bench.

as per sam's blog:

I mentioned yesterday the “medical exception” granted to the Rangers over Stephen Valiquette not having to pass through waivers. Um yea, that was wrong. Turns out Valiquette simply hasn’t played enough NHL games to need to go through re-entry waivers.

Valiquette is the starting goalie in Hartford this year so I dont know why you would say he has never been a starter at the AHL level.

umm no. Montoya is the starter in Hartford, just like last season.

That was a tough situation to come in . I've personally seen Valiquette play and he can do MUCH better. In fact if he had ever found some consistency, he'd probably be at LEAST a solid NHL backup! He was very shaky in that game, but he's usually better.

Some prospects just don't develop into NHL players--especially ones that are not consistant. Any player who has played hockey professionally has their moments. If they can't do it consistantly, there really isn't room for them. It's now more than 10 years since Valquette was drafted. He's not going to get any better and he's not suddenly develop into an NHL goalie, backup or otherwise. He's a place filler, nothing more.

Agreed. However, I will say with confidence, that Valiquette has alot of talent, just never got his act together for whatever reasons! You can't teach size, and he fills a net nicely.
