The player most scouts at the time of his draft were comparing him to Jeremy Roenick/Steve Yzerman.

He didn't pan out for several reasons, but considering the Rangers inability to develope a cold let alone a decent prospect, I kinda lean towards the Rangers not taking the proper time to allow this kid the time needed to get it.

He spent 3 seasons in NY, 2 of which he had no business in the pros (02-03 and 03-04) He as much as Manny were both rushed to the pros and it cost them both.

He could have been a different player had he been given the proper time and teaching to develope properly.
The losing culture and only giving them 3rd/4th line minutes hurt a lot more than rushing them, IMO.
