Biron Working to Get Better this Offseason

In an interview with newyorkrangers.com, Martin Biron talks about how he plans on bouncing back from a tough year with the Islanders...

"I started working out very early this summer when I came back from Long Island," said Biron. "I took a couple of weeks off, but I have been working out since then. I have been trying to do a lot more cardio, which is a big part of training camp and testing and all of that. I just feel like over the last year or two, I think that it was maybe a weak point. I've been trying to work a lot on that and continuing to do this and hoping that."

On why he struggled with the Islanders...

"I was in a situation with the Islanders where there was the possibility of going with three goalies all season," said Biron. "There was also a lot of upside to signing there last year, but unfortunately for me and for everybody else, it didn't work out the way that I was hoping to with that team. It was an experiment that didn't work out for me or the Islanders, but that's OK."

...if Biron can come in and perform at a high level to give Lundqvist some much needed rest he could be the most important signing of the offseason. Financially and personnel-wise.

That he struggled in that situation with the Isles showed that he wasn't mentally prepared for the season, it had nothing to do with conditioning. Our best hope has to be that being with his buddy Beniot will get his head screwed on tight so he isn't a total disaster...

Scotty, Biron also mentions Beniot in the article so yes hopefully working with him again will help as well.

Yes. Hopefully Biron is not as awful as he was last year. And, if he is, hopefully Chad Johnson can be a viable backup.

I honestly think this was one of the best signings in the off-season - both from a talent perspective and a fiscal perspective.

Still trying to understand how a goalie that couldn't hold down the fort in Philly or NYI has suddenly found his game and it only costs 800K. I always thought you get what you pay for.
