I haven't seen any Pack games this year, but I always thought Baranka was supposed to be a punishing hitter.

You have single-handedly destroyed any credibility you had on this subject.

I maybe in the minority on this but since he broke his hand at the end of last season-- he seems to me to be a little reluctant.

I've seen little of him, but everything I've seen, heard or read says he'll be in the NHL soon. The Rangers brass seems pretty high on him. Again, I think they are reluctant to rush him, as the long term seems to be their main priority. I would say that goes almost double for the back line. Many have made good arguments that the Rangers have a terrible recent history of rushing or otherwise not developing players properly. That is a perception the Rangers badly want to reverse, as it effects to some extent the caliber of player we can attract to the organization.

I see the Rangers being as cautious if not more so with at least the following players:

Staal
Sauer
Sanguinetti
Korpikoski
Anisimov
Dupont
Pyatt
Montoya
