With all of that said, I am not sure he is totally ready yet. I hope he continues to play well because I think he can be a very important piece to the Rangers future, but I am not sure he should be learning on the fly at the NHL level.
He's not Brian Leetch but he has a good shot and can move the puck into the O-zone and set up plays. He's already showing some of those instincts with the big club. We'll see how he develops but outside of dropping the gloves I don't see any limits to the type of player he can be.
