There's more to being ready than having good size. Hugh was not ready at the rookie camp. He has been unable to adapt to being the man that other teams are targeting, and this is in a league when he is MUCH bigger than anyone else. What happens when he is NOT the biggest boy on the block?
Why rush the kid? He cannot possibly even come close to helping the Rangers right now. Bringing him in just to show the world that there indeed are some young prospects is ludicrous. He needs AT LEAST another year or 2 of college and then another full year in the AHL.
