I disagree. He would be on a 2-way contract, so he'd be making peanuts in the AHL regardless, especially coming in as a 5th round pick. The behavior problems might just mean a couple less peanuts.

More important is the fact that there is a limit of 50 NHL contracts and I believe we are at 49 right now. Next year, Kundratek will be in the AHL so he'll count against the limit. We may see McDonagh, Stepan and Hagelin all leave school next year and sign NHL contracts.

Of course, some contracts will come off the books, but I doubt the Rangers will waste a contract on Doyle at this point.
