The latest on the Alex Georgiev situation

7/3/22 | Friedman wrote at Sportsnet that the Rangers asking price for Georgiev was “high” and included a “non-waiver eligible prospect, but that teams weren’t “biting” because they think he could become a UFA if he isn’t qualified.

7/2/22 | On his show on Thursday, Jeff Marek spoke about Alex Georgiev and said “It seemed like all season long and I don’t think the Rangers budged off of this, it’ll take a player and a high pick or prospect to get Georgiev away from the Rangers. Obviously, as of now, now one has been prepared to pay that price.”

Elliotte Friedman said that the Rangers “probably” would qualify Georgiev, but “you have to qualify Georgiev at a pretty good number and New York needs all the space they can get.” (Sportsnet)

The Alex Georgiev situation the Rangers are in

6/28/22 | Larry Brooks writes that the Avs were interested in Georgiev before the trade deadline, but the Rangers did not want to lose him as a backup to Igor Shesterkin before the playoffs. (NY Post)

6/26/22 | Larry Brooks writes in the NY Post that the Devils could have interest in Georgiev if he becomes a UFA.

He says that the Rangers are unlikely to deal Georgiev to the Devils “without an overpay” by New Jersey. (NY Post)

6/25/22 | Elliotte Friedman was NHL Network on Friday and was asked about Alex Georgiev.

Friedman said “one of the biggest questions is are the Rangers going to qualify him at the number he needs to get. Georgiev wants to play and also there could be a cap crunch. His arbitration numbers are pretty good and I think that is one of the things the Rangers are looking at. I’m curious to see if they are going to make a deal before then or are they going to be in a situation where a teams says ‘we want to see if he’s going to be available for nothing and see if we can do it that way.”

Where things are with Alex Georgiev right now

3/18/22 | 8:50PM: Arthur Staple writes that the Rangers and Coyotes had a deal for Georgiev in December that would have netted the Rangers a “low-level goalie prospect” before Igor Shesterkin was hurt. (The Athletic)

1PM: Frank Seravalli said “there are a lot of things to unpack with Georgiev. I think teams have been really concerned about his body language, his commitment, I guess. They feel he has been or outwardly been selfish, I think there has been talk about what he’s been like in the Rangers dressing room that has hurt his trade stock. The Rangers are actively trying to move him. What can they get for him? It’s probably a late round pick at this time, I’m thinking fourth. If Alex Nedeljkovic went for a third and Georgiev hasn’t been as good and there is baggage and he’s not coming back, the Rangers don’t have a lot of leverage. Vegas is a real strong possibility, I think.” (Daily Faceoff)

Would the Rangers consider moving Alex Georgiev now?

1/7/21 | 1:18PM: Arthur Staple writes at The Athletic that the Rangers were “very close” to trading Georgiev before Igor Shesterkin was injured.
12PM: On the 1/7 32 Thoughts Podcast, Jeff Marek asked Elliotte Freidman about Alex Georgiev and Friedman said ‘here is the reason I wouldn’t do that if I was the Rangers: Thursday night. If you are the Rangers, you are having a really good year, you have a chance for something and we are all trying to figure out how good the Rangers really are, but what is Bill Parcells old line, ‘you are what your results say you are.’ Right now their results say they are pretty good. If I’m the Rangers, Thursday night in Vegas, Shesterkin goes on the Covid list and now you have Georgiev there and I know Georgiev has made it clear before, ‘I’ll move if I can get more of a chance to play,’ but I think this is a case where if you are the Rangers, you say ‘look until we have a better alternative than you if Shesterkin is not in the lineup….,’ I’m not trading him unless you absolutely blow my socks off.”

Larry Brooks tweeted last night the Rangers can’t afford to trade Georgiev now.
