As far as his NHL future goes..

I think he becomes a free agent if the Rangers don't sign him by next June. If that's the case he might as well just not do anything and go to a team that will have a need for him. I honestly don't think the Rangers are going to have a spot open for the guy.
Agreed, my whole thing was based on if he kept dominating in the RSL (which after only 4 games is still a huge if). If we lost him though I really wouldn't see it hurting out prospect system at all, I mean he hardly got any recognition anyway with him not coming over to play in Hartford and wanting to stay overseas the past few years.

We would be fine without him, he just may or may not be a jewel in the making...who know what will happen. The guy has so many question marks, and not just on his play.
