Let him find his game in Hartford, then determine if he's ready.
It's not like he won't see some pucks before he steps on the ice for the first game. If his shoulder heals soon, he can attend the prospect camp, then training camp, pre-season, etc. Obviously things would have been better if started last year in Hartford and saw alot of playing time, when we thought Dunham was gonna be the #1. But if the season rolls around and Blackburn has been the best player on the ice throughout training camp, pre-season, etc, I think he deserves a shot to stay and play for the big club. Especially with the rebuilding situation the Rangers are currently in (it's doubtful they're gonna be challenging for the President's Trophy and the Cup next year).
