I respect what you are trying to say but although RJ's attitude is in question. He still had top 2 line potential. The Rangers don't have any prospects with that much upside (yes I agree someone might suprise us, but that is rare) If they would have signed him, he would have been a valuable asset, he had size, played center and had untapped skill!! Now that the Flyers have signed him, he will play extra hard against the Rangers and Canucks 6 times a year because we "passed" on him.
As for sign this young guy, sign that young guy. If there is a young prospect with a lot of potential, sign him!! The ones that will lose out are the borderline prospects that only stuck with the team because the Rags only had a few. RJ, if signed by the Rags, would be top 5 on the depth chart.
