He got back to his bread and butter and has been red hot since then.
Except his "bread and butter" is something that unless you're an extremely special talent will not work on the NHL level with his size.
CT is probably the Rangers prospect I'm most down on. I don't see a long term future at the NHL level. At this point, there's really no other options as far as a guy who can provide some sort of spark to the power play, so I understand the move. CT has a good shot, but not a superb shot. He's got 24 points in 52 games, and while I won't lie and say I watch every Whale game, the games I have watched (or been to) he's looked like his size really hinders him.
