Sanguinetti, at this point, is pretty much a one dimensional player. Unfortunately, thus far, his one dimension hasn't been good enough to make him stand out. It might be fair to say that even if he becomes an NHL player, he is not likely to reach that level with the Rangers.
I agree with what you said.

My only issue is getting a 2nd in return. I would prefer that the Rangers went after a D prospect with some offensive upside...Carolina has a few of those who are lesser known but could have decent potential. Carolina wanted Sangs probably because he is close to NHL ready...so maybe they would be ok with giving up a D prospect that is not as NHL ready...which would be fine for Rangers who have a bunch of young D who are ready now.
