Andrew Gross reports Sather says price to acquire another veteran backup was pretty high. Thinks backup will only play 1 or 2 games rest of the season.
Jim Cerney at newyorkrangers.com reports that Marty Biron suffered a broken collarbone during practice today and is out indefinitely.
Cam Talbot is being recalled from CT Whale.
...well that sucks.
...i didn't expect Biron to get too much action the rest of the way, but now the Rangers will be forced to throw Hank out there every night. Time for Hank to prove he is a goalie who can put a team on his back and get them to the playoffs and beyond.
...tough break for Biron, whose play made his signing the biggest of the offseason.
Why wasnt Chad Johnson called up? I know theyre trying to get him some experience down in the AHL, but its playoff push time. I'd rather have a goaltender who has some NHL experience picking up the extra one or two starts.
Who's gonna win for us in a shootout now? I hope we don't have to go there now because without him who knows if we can score!
Could it be possible to make an offer for Nabokov? Or is his season done due to not showing up to play with the Islanders
Holy shiznit! Can the injuries stop now?! Hopefully he'll be mic-ed the rest of the regular season so he can communicate with the bench to give shoot-out pointers to Wolski.
Drury appears to be done for season. Lots for him to think about over the summer. Could he retire, i.e. pull a Nasland?
I really, really love Biron, and I was hoping he'd get a few games sometime soon and give Hank a break. But even beside his on-ice play, Biron seems like a huge presence on the bench and is so openly supportive of the team... the idea of not having him there is kind of disheartening.
I suggested earlier that we start Biron vs Tampa Bay if we meet again because Hank can't seemt to stop St Louis but I guess that's no longer an option.
Remind me again who is our 3rd goalie... Kevin Weeks?
@TheAveryRule I'm hearing the reason Talbot was called up is because they don't want Johnson sitting while Hank is in. Once the Rangers need to give Hank a rest Johnson will be recalled to play.
