OMG the Rangers have built a wall to keep the pucks out of the net.

Good signing but he'll probably never play for the Rangers with their goalie depth.

He plays for my hometown team. He’s a beast. Played almost the whole season. And won hockey east mvp a couple of years ago.

I hear you but, nobody ever thought Maxime Legace, Oscar Dansk, or Dylan Ferguson would ever play for Vegas in their 1st season. Or that Binnington would lead STL to the Cup. Crazy things happen with Goalies, lol.

Tyler Wall has make a big jump from Junior A (GOJHL) in his 2015-16 season to make the NCAA the next season (2016-17). He had a bad in 2017-18, but come back solid for his last two season with UMass-Lowell. Even he was drafted in the 7th round, 137th overall in 2014 OHL Draft by SSM, he opt to go to the NCAA and drafted by Waterloo (USHL) in the 14th round, 224th overall 2016 USHL Draft, but never play there and jump rightaway in the NCAA (Hockey-East). It's a very nice signature from the NYR and maybe after 1 or 2 seasons in the AHL or maybe in the ECHL, he would battle to be a #2 NHL goaltender with the NYR or elsewhere. I will follow him.

Honestly, you can never have enough goalies in the system IMO. If you look at how many of the strongest team in goaltending setup, they try and split games between both goalies a lot more evenly. It also seems like goalies have a bigger chance to bust than other positions and even their year to year stats fluctuate. Look at Bob, the guy gets traded by PHI for a pair of picks after posting a 2.73 GAA / .909 SV% over two season....then goes on to win a Vezina. Of course the 3 years that followed his numbers go worse year over year, then he wins another Vezina, only to see his numbers once again decline for 3 straight years.

Goalies are so volatile, its part of the reason why I never understand why teams take goalies so high. From 2006 to 2016 these goalies were 1st round picks:

Jonathan Bernier
Riku Helenius
Semen Varlamov
Leland Irving
Chet Pickard
Thomas McCollum
Jack Campbell
Mark Visentin
Andrey Vasilevskiy
Malcolm Subban
Ilya Samsonov

Outside of a few guys, most turned out to be not worth the 1st round pick used on them.
