They say it takes two to tango. Well, the New York Rangers seem content to dance by themselves.
Log on to Twitter at any point over the past week and you’ll learn a surprising new fact: Alexandar Georgiev, the 23-year-old, formerly-undrafted Rangers netminder with 30 wins and a .914 save percentage in 65 career NHL games, is apparently the greatest goaltending talent of our time.
Who knew? A bonafide superstar rose to prominence within a prime NHL media market and we all missed it! Shame on us, really.
Beginning with Elliotte Friedman’s report last week that it would take “more than Jeremy Bracco” to pry Georgiev out of New York, discussions centring around the young netminder’s trade value ahead of February’s deadline have officially reached meme status.
It really do be like that, folks.
