Rangers are a young team poised to compete for many years to come, have shown that if you outplay someone else, you will play over them, regardless of your age, and the Rangers are lacking a player of his skillset.
It would probably be best for his development if he started out on the third pairing and got first line PP duties, too.
I definitely agree that if you outplay someone you will earn more ice time. I was just asking why he would want to come play on a team where he would have to overcome more obstacles to obtain that ice time. I would bet on some teams he could start on the 2nd pair and perhaps be on the 1st line with some excellent play. That is a lot less likely on NYR. Hell, for that fact alone I would think highly of the kid if he chose New York.
