I actually really liked him during his call-up.

This is a joke, right? You can't possibly be this obtuse. Do you mean to say that all 50 players contracted by an NHL organization MUST be players who are capable of producing at the NHL level? Where have you ever seen this? Provide even ONE team where this is the case.

You're just complaining for the sake of it.
I thought very highly of PA...if it was my choice, I would have kept him over a stiff like EC but I like to complain.

maybe he takes the space of someone like Jeff Halpern, that would be criminal, wait, if it prevents Halpern, I change my mind, I like the signing.....

Not really. He's not hindering the Rangers from getting prospects to the AHL, and if prospects can't outplay him for a callup to the Rangers then they probably don't deserve to be called up!

He's not taking space away from anyone at all

No one said Kolarik was a mentor. Do you expect the Grachev's and Kreider's of the world to develop offensively when Kris Newbury and Justin Soryal are their linemates? No. You need a top 6 in Hartford the same way you need a top 6 in the NHL.

With the possibility of Grachev and/or Zuccarello permanently earning a spot with the Rangers next year, re-signing at least one of Kolarik and Jason Williams was a no-brainer.

Grachev, Kolarik, Hagelin, Zuccarello, Newbury, Weise, Dupont, T. Grant, Ryan Bourque, Chritistian Thomas(not sure on his eligibility) and perhaps Williams is a nice assortment of players to build a top 9 at the AHL level with. And it has grit and size mixed in.

Like this. He ripped up the AHL and he was a viable NHL call up.

I know it's hard to think about but you do have to use some of those contracts on borderline NHL AHL players more for the AHL

Good signing. He's got a good game and can definetly produce at the AHL level. Talent needs talent to develop. It's hard for young players to get better on bad teams.

Same, solid guy to call up when a player is injured. Reminds me of a Parenteau type player in that sense.

Let's see... You've got 23 players on the NHL roster... and maybe 7-8 legit to marginal prospects playing at Hartford... the likes of Grachev, Hagelin, Bourque, Kundratek, J.Wilson, Talbot.

Most of the remaining 15-20 contracts will go to minor league fodder... that is, guys who don't have a prayer of making an impact in the NHL. This includes the Chris Chappells, the Justin Soryals, the Lee Baldwins, the Tysen Dowzaks and the Matt McCues of the world.

You also sign a few of these types of players in the hopes that you stumble on an overlooked diamond in the rough, like a Dan Girardi. But the vast majority of them have very little to offer even at the lowest of the minor leagues. If you strictly sign these kind of longshots, then your minor league team will be in shambles.

Instead you sign 4-5 veterans, who are not quite prospects anymore, but who've shown that they can be somewhat productive at the minor league level. The likes of Kris Newbury and Chad Kolarik fall into this category. This helps a team like The Whale be competitive while its prospects develop. It also gives you some options in case of injuries.

My questions are what what "really useful" contract is Kolarik taking away, and what other player who is available would be better suited for this role?
