If he's going to play in Hartford, I can see the logic in keeping him College and keeping him off of his ELC. Why burn up valuable years of an ELC in Hartford when you can use them on the big club in NY on a player like Kreider. In the end. This may save the Rangers several million in cap space an allow them to squeeze in that extra player. Not to mention, what's to happen with the new CBA. Waiting until next year, may give them another option when signing Kreider.
If he plays in Hartford for a year, none of his ELC will be burned off.
