There's no mention in my post whatsoever on talent level - but you can't ignore the similarity between organizations with crowded creases.

    Nalimov needs to show up at camp, dominate - take a job from someone else. That's how it's done. Don't just look at names on paper and wave a white flag. It would not be the first time a job was taken from someone else who was just signed.

    You can look at it in reverse as well. Pickard was brought in expected to take the starting job from Sparks - Sparks put his head down threw up a couple 'you're number one's' and kept the starting gig in the AHL.

    Does Nalimov think he's the worst goalie in the Hawks system?

    Philly's depth chart won't be difficult to climb. They don't have an established #1 and Hart is a super-prospect.

    It's funny how North Americans seem to think people just want to abandon their families and friends and move across the Atlantic. No, they don't want to do that. They're willing to do it when the right opportunity presents itself. That's just so twisted to think otherwise. Would you be happy to move to Russia for less money and less opportunity just so that you can fight two other guys for a job that's beneath you? Take a moment and think about that situation for yourself. Maybe then you'll get some perspective.

    This is what he has signed up for. He's making the decision to come over and attempt to play in the NHL. Anywhere he's traded there are going to be other goalies already in the system and other prospects to battle starts for.

    You're getting all twisted in knots about this. He could be looking at this as - hey, there's five goalies there, but I think I can beat them out for the AHL job & get to the NHL in a year. If he doesn't think he's that good, maybe he should just stay in the KHL.

    No, he hasn't made that decision. He's decided he'll have a better opportunity with some other NHL organization. If he doesn't get that, he can stay in the KHL where he earns much more than what he'd make in the AHL.

    Take the Panthers for example. He'd be their #3 goalie right away with NHL starting job available in a few years if he plays well enough. Why wouldn't he try to get somewhere like that?

    A comparison of crowded creases - not talent between players. Crawford's also 33 with some health issues of late, is there any heir apparent in that system? NOPE. Forsberg? The starting job in Chi will be ripe for picking in a couple years. There's no blue chip waiting in line for it.

    Crawford isn't a young buck either. There's no one anointed the next starter in Chicago, why not go there, beat them out for the job?

    Seems like you're underestimating Forsberg and Lankinen big time. Perhaps Nalimov knows his opponents better than you do.

    And also because Florida (for example) has just one goalie in the AHL whereas Chicago already has 2 (or 3). Any idea how many goalies are usually on a team? I'm thinking it's 2.

    I'm sorry, did I say something that deserves such a condescending comment? Try and avoid the petty stuff.

    I've never said I'm any professional scout. I have my opinions - that's what I post. That's what this forum is about.

    When posts are made asking about next starting goalies or top goalie prospects Forsberg rarely, and Lankinen never gets mentioned as must owns. Philly says 3.
