Figure, they draft an 18 year old kid, at 22 Hank will be 34 or 35. That's about right. They are stocked on defense and by adding Nash with Kreider, Hagelin, Cally, J.T. Miller and Fast, the time is right to draft a goalie in the first round if the right one is available.
Honestly, I can see the Rangers are hard as it might seem to some, trading a Girardi or Staal to move way up, top 5 in the draft if they think a franchise goalie is there. You have to figure, Girardi in 2 years will want 5 years at 6 million easy. McDonagh who was greedy just to sign with NY is going to want 5 years at 5 million at least. Somebody has to go.
