The unexpected goalie competition

September 15, 2013, by

Biron is at the center of an unexpected goalie competition.

When August turned to September, the one position that had zero uncertainty was goaltender. Henrik Lundqvist is the starter, and Martin Biron was supposed to be the backup. A wrench was thrown into that plan when Biron missed the first two days of camp with a personal issue, and the Rangers invited former Devil Johan Hedberg to camp on a professional tryout. Now, all signs point to a goaltender competition, as Biron will need to outplay Hedberg to win his spot as the backup.

It was a rather curious move, bringing in Hedberg when Biron wasn’t expected to miss much time. Biron has been one of the most consistent backups in the league since joining the Rangers three years ago. Biron played well in his first two-year contract (signed in 2010), earning himself another two-year deal that expires after this season. Marty has been consistently solid in net, and remains one of the best backups in the league. Of course, he does carry a $1.3 million cap hit, pretty high for a backup.

Hedberg is coming off three years with the Devils, splitting time with Martin Brodeur. His first two years in Jersey were solid, but his final year was a bit rocky. The Swedish netminder posted a 2.76 GAA and a .883 SV% in 19 games. On paper, Biron is the better choice.

But then there is that cap hit. The Rangers are in a precarious position with Derek Stepan unsigned, and freeing up the roughly $300,000 in cap space that keeping Hedberg over Biron (assuming Hedberg would ink a deal around $1 million) would go a long way to getting the young center signed and keeping some salary cap space free for mid-season deals.

One other aspect to consider is that Hedberg –who would need to completely out duel Biron to win the spot– was without an offer during the offseason. Plenty of teams need steady backup goaltending, and Hedberg could simply take this opportunity to play well and earn a deal from a different team. It isn’t unheard of, and the Rangers aren’t an organization that would get in the way of a pro getting one last contract. It’s going to be interesting watching this one unfold.

    Burin shoul 100% beat out Herberg IMO

  2. Walt says:

    Marty is the better of the two, but we don’t know what personal issues are involved, and that may impact the decision of the coaching staff. Let’s just hope that all these matters are cleared up soon, and that the best man wins, Marty that is!!

    I can’t see Sather or AV Favoring Hedberg for $300K. That money doesn’t get you much when Hedberg has to start a game. Biron brought a steady influence to the backup goalie position. Tho he may be slightly overpaid, he gets wins on days when Hank needs off. Hank needs off to remain fresh through the regular season and into the playoffs.

    • Dave says:

      Cap space is calculated on a daily basis, so the $300k turns into roughly $1 million in a full season cap hit at the deadline.

      • Ray says:

        If Hedberg signs for $1 million, doesn’t that cost the Rangers cap space? If the Rangers can unload Biron, that’s one thing, but if Biron goes to Hartford, the Rangers can’t deduct the whole 1.3 million, only about 900k IIRC, so anything above 900k for Hedberg costs cap space.
