He had 71 points in 68 games a year ago as an 18 year old. I don't think it should be held against JAM that he cracked the QMJHL at the age of 16.

71 points in 68 games is ok for an 18 year old, and 95 points in 68 games is great for a 19 year old. Better still, he finished his junior career with 33 points in 18 games.

It looks like the kid was continuously improving. What's the downside to signing him? That Dolan will pay him a middle-class salary to play in the AHL? Worst case, he'll be a third line center in Hartford. Best case scenario, he becomes a second line scorer on the Rangers at some point.

We are not surrendering any assets and we don't have to waste cap space on him unless he crack the NHL.
