I mean, what's for another GM not to like about him? But either way, he's gone after the 2007-2008 season. I wouldn't want to sign a FA to replace Malik because I would want to give a Hartford kid a chance. And I feel that we should give benefit of the doubt to our youngsters. I've always felt jealous of teams with home-grown cores. I wish for our Rangers to be such a team.
