And he looked comfortable.

That explanation makes little sense.

The Rangers have made good personnel decisions. But this one isn't one of them.
The coaching staff obviously doesnt think Erixon is ready for consistent NHL minutes. And, when you look at the last few games he played earlier this season, I cant really blame them.

Its one thing to bring a kid up, have him hang out/practice with the team. Its a completely different thing to potentially comprimise a kid's development simply because you need him to play while you have multiple defensemen out for weeks.

Im not confused or outraged at the decision.
