Lot of demand for that.
Does that mean he has no trade value? I disagree.

Nonsense.
Somehow playing limited time with Boogie still allowed YOU to evaluate him correctly below. I agree with your take on the kid. Thus, NHL pro scout could do the same.

His problem while he was here is he didn't look like he wanted the puck for fear of screwing up.

I ask myself this. The Rangers put him in a 4th line checking role. Did he perform his duties without looking out of place ?

The answer is yes.

I'm satisfied and you should be too.
