That is what the AHL is for.

Yogan being sent to the ECHL is alot different than sending MSC, a guy that has averaged 90 points a season for three straight years in Juniors.

regardless of role that Powe is playing, he's got no future value to the Rangers organization and instead of giving a spot to some fringe player at both teh NHL and AHL levels, they should be teaching MSC how to eat/workout so that he gets stronger physically and as that happens, naturally he will learn how to play against men.
