You can blame that on injury but I haven't seen a huge improvement from him despite the points. Most of his points are coming on the PP because he's getting more time on it now that Kadri, Frattin and others are gone.

He has nice hands and can produce given time and space but his compete level is low. He doesn't know how to give himself space 5-on-5 (like by using his body or reach) and his defensive acumen is, at best, amateur.
Carlyle doesn't have a team filled with kids either.

It is a veteran squad (AHL vets included), with Kadri.


The New York Rangers are the most valuable NHL franchise at $1.2 billion, taking the top spot on the Forbes list for the first time since 2004.

The magazine said Tuesday that Montreal is second at $1.18 billion, followed by Toronto at $1.15 billion.
