Again a far cry from Lac, Ortmeyer, & Green.
And let's recall that Yorkie was not yo-yoed from RW to LW to C. Nor did he have to struggle to find consistent ice time. All of these things add up.
Haven't you wondered as to WHY the Rangers have such a hard time developing prospects? There are lots of reasons. Not all of them are busts. Looks like Manny is beginning to hit his stride in Columbus. Again, you CANNOT place a potential top 2 line player w/ 4th line wastes and expect him to produce instant offense. NO team in the league does that w/ their prospects. Add in the fact that he had a knee injury and has missed 2 months of the season.
All of these factors add up.

excuse after excuse after excuse. truebrooks you are the best. lundmark has two goals he gets chances its not like he doesn't. the fact is he can't score at the nhl level. its sad and pathetic.
