It's not just principle though. If they didn't respond to these allegations, they're technically in violation of OHL rules. In addition, what is the next kid they draft out of the US going to be looking for as his education package? You can bet the first number out of his "advisor's" mouth is $200K.

The numbers simply don't work, as far as I can tell. A first round NHL pick is likely a 2-year Ranger at the most, and if he's really that good, perhaps a 1-year Ranger or his NHL club hangs onto him (and we know what that's like!). No single player is going to be the reason for more playoff dates - I don't care who the player is. So the Rangers lose money on a deal for what reason?
