The Blueshirts now own six draft picks in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft, which begins tonight, and six in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft.

 

Below is the updated list of Rangers' picks for this year's draft:

2nd Round (63rd overall)

5th Round (159th overall)

5th Round (161st overall)

6th Round (191st overall)

 

Georgiev, 26, played in 33 games for the Rangers in 2021-22, posting a 15-10-2 record, 2.92 goals-against average and a .898 save percentage. In 129 appearances with the Blueshirts over five seasons, he went 58-48-11 with a 2.94 GAA and .908 save percentage.

I see them about to take some risk with a few Russians who are going to slide big time.

 

I don't like this at all. As a rival.

Rangers made out pretty well in giving up a goalie who was never going to take the net away from Igor Shesterkin.

I mentioned in the chatbox that Georgiev has been wanting to be an NHL starter and now the Champions are going to give him that chance, so time for Georgiev to put up, or shut up.
This can work out fantastic for Colorado, or could be one of the biggest mistakes they have made in goal, since, well, thinking Grubauer was a championship goalie after looking good as a backup.

It's up to Georgiev now.

Rangers now need a veteran goalie who knows his place to be Shesterkins backup. Holtby comes to mind.

 

  I love the aggressive nature of this move for Colorado. Too many times when a team wins it all they stand pat and rest on their laurels. Sakic aggressively just improved the net, Kuemper was below .900 save pct and yet they went 16-4 running over everyone in the postseason. It woulda been so easy to just extend him for a year or two and say, ;well he was good enough to win us a cup last year, lets give him another kick of the can' but Sakic added a young hungry goalie with something to prove and a chip on his shoulders. They have lots and lots of free agents to deal with but the net is now filled in a bigger and better way.

Solid move by Sackitch.  Not an expensive cost.  And his deal will probably be less than the 4.5 cap hit that Kuemper's was.

But, have 24 mil in cap space to work with because they're managed pretty well.  Kadri is the big question.  If, at 31(32 in Oct.), is expecting a big raise from his Lamoriello deal, and left to walk because of that, it leaves them with a lot to work with for the pieces that Sakic has to deal with.
