If those players had the option to sign an NHL contract, they absolutely would. They aren't signing an AHL deal just to showcase themselves. The Rangers are the ones who determined that JAM would get an AHL deal rather than an NHL deal. If they had offered him an NHL deal to begin with, he'd still be Rangers property.
For every JAM, there are dozens of players who play out their AHL deals and are never heard from again.
