I'm not jealous either and seeing king nothing fall from grace is very enjoyable. I'm so happy he never won a cup with them. They sure did come close during that window but in the end the king always crumbled when it mattered the most.

Not for nothing I'd take Shesterkin over McKenzie all day and twice on Sunday. I'm more reserved on Henrik too because if they break him down he may walk away or agree to be dealt which saves them a huge cap hit next year. Which would then get them out of a bind with others they may not be able to afford. Best case for them is if he gone one way or the other next season.

Why? He’s only played 9 games in the NHL so far. Mac is bigger (6”4 > 6”2) and was taken 2 rounds earlier...

The Russian kid might have had all the hype coming in, but Mac looks like a stud at this point.

I think he's way ahead of where McKenzie was when he first came up. He's 8-1 with a save % of. 938 and a 2.25 goals against. I think he quickness is much better as well. Time will tell. Unfortunately I think the Rags have two goalies going forward with Georgiev being as good as Mac too. Thankfully we have Cory too. Best case for us is Henrik refuses to move and forces them into a corner. None of this is a knock on Mac I think he'll be fine.

Regardless of where mac is compared to either of the Rangers goalies, here’s my take on part of your concern:

Both young goalies know they have talent. I think there is less than a 5% chance BOTH of the elect to stay with NY and be happy about splitting time 50-50 even though the NHL seems to be trending in the direction of splitting time. Unlike the Marty years or even the idea of the sole superstar goalie. I firmly believed unless a guy is the second coming of say Price/Hank/Fluery/Marty, you really wont see guys start more than 65 games, but with that being said, the luster of Broadway only lasts so long before people want out. And for some strange masochistic reason, Hank wants to go down with the ship, waving goodbye to his cup chances. Guess the goal medals and loyalty to a singular organization are more important? (This of course will be proven hysterically wrong when Hank gets traded by Monday night and then both of their goalies attend a press conference that afternoon saying they love each other and fully support one another and will do whatever it takes to win, including riding the bench, for years to come)

He’s also 24 years old, and has a defense with guys like Trouba, DeAngelo, Fox, etc. 

Give him our defense (especially without Vatanen) and see how he looks lol

True. At the same time we haven't played a meaningful game since November and he's basically been playing do or die games for them as they cling to life support to try and make the playoffs. 

Deangelo is a terrible defender. Fox is ok, Troubas contract is going to cost them for years to come. 

As for keeping them both if they can move 30 out, won't the both be pinned down a while before becoming UFA's. 

Again nothing but good things to say about Blackwood. We're lucky to have him. Just think Shesterkin may have a hire ceiling in the situation he's in. 

All while Cory and 30 steal their bloated paychecks.

If you have center ice tune to Carolina vs Toronto. Midway through the second, With Reimer already out with a LBI, Marzek just got destroyed and left. Toronto’s Clifford got a 5 min Major for charging. Overturned to minor. 
 

emergency goalie time, Dave Ayers in. Has a sh!t ton of Leafs stuff on his gear, name on mask.

Poor guy 2 goals on 3 shots and none were easy. He’s the goalie of record now too, as the Canes got the 4th goal with him in net.

Canes have been getting abused too, on the 2nd goal they lost Pesce to a possible laceration

This is incredible: canes with a goal 53 seconds into the period to go up 2.

they just scored again to increase the lead to 3

if i’m not mistaken and the lead holds, he gets the W

And considering their team just got embarrassed, good on Leafs fans for cheering for him in the stars of the game almost as loud as when they scored a goal.

A 43-year old Zamboni driver wins an NHL game, on the same day Ovechkin scores #700, which just happens to be the 40th anniversary of the Miracle on Ice. What a day lol.
