Ranger fans have nothing to worry about when it comes to goaltending, at least not for the next 10 years or so.
But who will take over between the pipes after Hank retires?
Let's take a look at the possible replacements that are up and coming, or could be traded for.
First up is Chad Johnson who we've already see play and win.
Known for his calm demeanor between the pipes he's already stolen the starting job in Hartford from Matt Zaba, who at this point is a backup at best.
Johnson's got alot of talent, he's athletic when he needs to be, and has great positioning but still has to mature for another year or so before he's ready.
Further down the line you have goalies Cam Talbot and Scott Stajcer both who had great seasons on not so great teams.
Both goalies face a large amount of shots, take on heavy workloads and manage to post respectable numbers. Both are incredibly hard working, and compete every game, often being the difference maker.
Expect to see Stajcer, who seems a little further along, to make a push for either a backup or even the starting job in Hartford.
Other prospects around the league that if acquired that could take over for Hank are Mike Murphy, Jacob Markstrom, and even Dustin Tokarski.
Murphy owned by Carolina is one of the most athletic goalie prospects out there, he doesn't have great size, but has alot of skill and employs an exciting unorthodox style of goaltending.
Tokarski, Tampa property, is a little more technical than Murphy, has good size and was really good in the 2009 World Juniors helping Team Canada win the gold.
Marsktrom can be compared to 'The King' in the way he plays. He's a Swedish goaltender with probably the brightest future out of the three. He has an incredible butterfly and will most likely take over in Florida in the coming years.
I personally would like to see the Rangers trade for either Markstrom or newly drafted goalie Jack Campbell (Dallas Stars) a great young goaltender who can make amazing saves, is athletic, has great positioning, competes hard and can steal games. He's also a good leader on the ice and in the locker.
Who'd you guys like to see take over for Hank after he retires?
