The kid sucks so much and is so terrible to get cut by 2 CHL teams and somehow finagles a NHL deal based solely off of his name?

I'm amazed at how ridiculously people are viewing this.
The article doesn't say "Get excited Rangers fans". It doesn't say "the future of the franchise has come". It doesn't say "Rangers fans will crap their pants with joy". It just says all Rangers fans will be happy. Stop thinking about the NHL roster and just think about this: if this thread had never been posted and tomorrow you found out the Rangers signed Messier's son you'd probably be like "oh, cool... Messier's son". I think that's all it meant.
I'm sorry and I will gladly eat crow if I'm wrong, but I too would take bets on it being Messier. I don't see it being anyone else, the way it's written.
