As a 22-yr old kid... and especially as an 17-yr old kid, why would you ever close the door like that? I'm sure Immonen kept the option open to play in the NHL right up until the point that he didn't make the Rangers and wasn't under contract. It's not like he was sitting there saying "I don't want to play in the NHL" before the opportunity ever really arose.
