I'm with yu up until the bold. We really can't say for certain that we are developing him well. And I fully agree with you about how he's coming along. But you can't say it as a certain. Nor can you say he's going to be a bigger and nastier Orpik, thats going a little too far and just as bad as people who say he's a bust. Both extremes don't apply to this prospect yet.

No serious Ranger fan hopes to be 'right' over the team succeeding.
