Dan Blackburn
 
I heard he may be starting the year in the AHL? Is this going to happen?

Is Danny still touted to be the great goalie he was before he was drafted? Or have the Rangers ruined him by rushing him??

Dan will be playing in Hartford yes, but he is still the goalie of our future!!

Nah, he wasn't rushed. He played himself into a spot at camp. It's as simple as that. However, giving the Rangers affinity for veterans, it's hard to give him the ice time he needs to perfect his craft with goalies like Richter and Dunham in front of him. In Hartford he'll get in 50-60 games. Blackburn is still going to be the goalie he was touted as at the draft. There's no question in my mind. It just takes time and the move to Hartford will be the best thing for him at this stage of his development. Our course, that's just my take.

The Rangers haven't ruined him, but this shoulder injury could..

Don't know how much it will effect him, but Leetch was never able to shoot the puck quite as hard as he did before he had a nerve problem in his shoulder..

He's being sent down so he can get 50-60 starts to build up his endurance.
