I'm a fan. A fan of him and his style of hockey.
Here's the deal though. Like many here have said, the competition is so stiff for roster spots him coming here hampers someone else.
But...If the last 2 spots are McDonough and Gilroy overall, the Rangers defense is not physical. Granted, Staal and Girardi will both throw the body, as will McDonough and MDZ, there still isn't a bonafide physical guy that is a true crease clearer. O`Brien is that kind of a guy.
If Valentenko makes it then the club has a bit of an attitude back there. But, seriously...what are the chances that he makes it? Gilroy witrh the experience has got to be ahead of him at this point on the depth chart. So if he does make it, the club gets faster, and a damn good puck mover who can join the rush, but gets weaker...and far less physical.
