You know I thought for the most part Torts and the Rangers have done a magnificent job bringing along home grown rookies. Even a guy like Sauer was giving the trust to succeed and was aloud to prove himself. McDonagh, DZ rebounded after being sent down. Etc... I feel like for the first time they are not managing a kid correctly though. And when I say
i mean Torts and the Rangers brass, because its a decision they all have to make.
Agree about their history so far with prospects. I don't think they've done a bad job with anyone prior to Kreider. However Kreider has been different than a lot of the previous prospects brought in to the system. I would hate to see Kreider fall short of his expected role or be forced in to something he isn't. Torts is trying to make him Hagelin. Hagelin is a good player, but I think we all have higher expectations for Kreider.
