we've discussed this many times and for me the question always comes down to how much would he really benefit from another at dartmouth playing against ecac teams...

and i tend to lean toward making the jump to the AHL as being the best thing for his development HOWEVER the big sticking point remains the fact that he isn't even close to be nhl ready...

can the rangers really be trusted to avoid the temptation of rushing him and leave him in hartford for the full year??

he'd need atleast 1 full year in hartford before even thinking about bring him up and the last thing we want would be for them to make him the 'poster child' for a rebuild like they did with malhotra...so while making the jump might be good for him, i'm starting to lean toward leaving him in school another year to avoid the temptation...

of course ideally sather will be fired and a competent gm will be brought in who will take away this concern
