The Rangers seem to prefer that their players take the junior route over college. Personally, I think so as well. More games played in juniors, more ice time at a younger age too. Then instead of finally being given responsibility as an upper classman, the 20 year old moves on to pro hockey.

The only advantage to college is the actual education and degree the kid is getting in case he fails to make the NHL.
