Wolf Pack Lose to Worcester in Mostly Lackluster Effort, But Tessier Shines

Not much went right this afternoon for the Hartford Wolf Pack, as the team was downed 4-3 by the Worcester Sharks.* If you look at the score sheet, and even the final score, it does not look as bad as the Pack did on the ice. It was horrible for two periods and then so-so [...]

Thanks for the report. Maybe Tessier will become quite the find for the Rangers. Curious , I know it's early , but can Redden help this team ie leadership & all ???

Does Tessier=trade bait at the deadline?? Ik he's smallish and quick sounds to me like he's a locke kinda guy great ahler just doesn't have the setup to make the jump into an NHL role especially on a ranger team that has such an abundance of bottom 6 talent down the middle.

He is not like Locke in that he plays a very physical game, is excellent defensively and has good hands. Probably not as good hands as Locke, but better than most at this level.

I was a non-believer of Tessier's ability to succeed at the next level, so I hope the kid proves me wrong.

I really just compared him to locke in that he's a good ahl center, correct me if I'm wrong but I just don't see a spot on the rangers for the kid with stepan-anisimov-drury-christensen-boyle-dubi(in no particular order) and hopefully a premier centerman. Unless he's gona be a star first line center.

Dude, Tessier is only 20. Are we already writing him off as not good enough?

when was the last time a team traded for an ahler with 0 games of nhl experience to put them in their lineup down the stretch?

Trade bait as in an add on the + that's always in anyones trade proposal, and im not saying he isn't good enough I'm just saying I don't see a spot in 2-3-4 years for him on the rangers with stepan-anisimov-drury unless he switches to wing but that's a different story

Tessier was on the wing last night for about half the game. He played well there.

Contractually, he is in an interesting place. I was talking about this kind of situation (not about Tessier specifically) the other night with a contract expert for the Rangers and he cleared it up for me.

If a player has a one year AHL contract with Hartford, he is bound by it and legally can't break it without Hartford's okay. He can negotiate with anyone he wants, but if its an NHL team other than the Rangers, he can't sign prior to the end of the AHL contract. The Rangers, however, can negotiate with the player during the contract period and, with Hartford's consent, tear up the AHL contract and give him an NHL ELC.

So, basically, signing a player to an AHL contract gives an NHL team a window of exclusive opportunity to watch, then negotiate with and finally sign a player without the interference of another NHL team.

Of course, Hartford could trade Tessier to another team, but he can't be traded by the Rangers to another team, because, at this point, the Rangers have no rights to him.

I'm writing him off as "not good enough" because he wasn't "good enough" in juniors and he didn't project to be "good enough" at the next level.

I know it's early, but, if the kid continues to put up a point a game in the AHL at age 20, then should we really care about how he played in juniors? Certain guys develop at different times.

Sure. I don't expect it to continue, though. I want to be proven wrong, however.

Indeed. It's only a couple of games. We'll see.

With out looking down the roster of Rangers prospects, you might be under the impression that their are too many small guys in the system.

I was guilty of this. Twenty of our forward prospects are 6'-0" or better.

You just can't help noticing small guys like Zucarello and Tessier.

But these guys are scrappy, so maybe that's the difference maker.
