Thats how i feel.
When the Rangers make signings like Rupp and Fedotenko, and people get all bent out shape when they look at the depth on LW, and an extra journeyman defenseman is invited to camp, etc. - these are GOOD problems to have.
Its a GOOD thing we have another skilled centerman with a hit less than 1M in Christensen, because he's exactly that, depth. Its easy to look at the lineup in absolutes, but in this league you need depth, and the more the better if you can fit them in. Look at all the injuries last season, it could happen again and you need bodies, not just AHL fodder who are lucky to be up in the big show.
While Christensen can be frustrating as heck to watch some nights, he also has the ability to rattle off 3 or 4 productive games on a top line - not to mention his prowess in the SO. So you retain that option if you can, and he practices with the team - only makes the Rangers stronger IMO.
