Players who pop 16 in the NCAA at age 24 are hardly prime prospects.

They must like his two way game. Haven't gotten to see him play this year, but this is the kind of player than should get an AHL ATO rather than an NHL contract.

So who is the scout up in Alaska? Johnson, Baldwin and now Grant. All spent time at Alaska-Anchorage.

I've always been a believer that the little things about someone can be really telling. That being said, in his NYR picture in the OP's link, the dude looks like he's homeless or just got off of an all-night bender. THAT is how you present yourself in the photo for an NHL fanchise?

Knowing nothing about this guy, that picture already makes me feel like we wasted a contract that could have been used on someone with an actual chance of making the big club at some point.

I know it's probably an overreaction, but whatever. It just sucks that we wasted a contract on AHL fodder.

kid has a bit of size and grit. seems to be able to put points up. probably nothing more than an AHL depth move. who knows? maybe he has a great year in the ahl next year.

He looked more like a serial killer to me than a tweaker

I've read comments like this over the years regarding signings. Sometimes we wind up with a guy who is purely run of the mill and sometimes you wind up with.....Dan Girardi. That scenario of course is very rare, and I understand this guy is way below the radar compared to Girardi.

I also remember people crying that Derek Stepan was a tap dancer and a wasted pick with Jared Staal was still on the board.

That's almost as bad as hiring a head coach based on an essay he writes about the game of hockey LOL.........

I think it's more the fact that it counts against our 50 contracts.

Grant makes it (49). How many additional signings do you anticipate this year?

I like that he was able to step in an contribute right away. Not everyone the Whale has looked at this season has been able to contribute at all. If helps bolster the team's postseason chances, that's good for the Ranger prospects and that's OK with me.

For those complaining that this is a wasted contract, consider that management most likely reserves a couple contracts each year for undrafted free agents. In fact, it seems like every team does it. Yeah, the odds are against getting a player that can contribute at a high level, but there have been more than enough success stories to make it worth the gamble. So if it wasn't this kid, it would be some other player you've never heard about.

Also, he's 24 years old, which means he got a 1 year ELC, probably for the minimum. So if he doesn't work out, big deal. We sign some other undrafted UFA next year.

Came to Hartford and got a pair of assists in his very first game. If he can keep the 2 points per game pace, he'll grow on me.

I'm pretty sure I trust the Rangers management of contracts over any of you people here on this message board. They know what they're doing and the Rangers aren't going to get into a situation where they can't sign an important prospect/player because they used up their available contract space on scrubs.

So stop whining
