    There may be, but not with me. I'm sure I could go back to around mid-season which is when I started saying I didn't think he was that good of a player and that he chased the play far too much. I don't even remember the hit that got him suspended, honestly, and with guys like him I think you kind of resign yourself to the idea that it may happen from time to time.

    I like the idea of Brendan Lemieux, but Brendan Lemieux in execution is less appealing to me. He could be a lot more effective at what he does, I think.

    This is what I'm talking about. He COULD be a good third line player and very valuable, but instead he spend half of his TOI chasing guys around and falling on his ass. If he could focus more on playing hockey and learn pick and choose his spots to be a pest, he'd be a better player and I'd like him more. Instead he's like Avery would get sometimes where he'd want to exclusively be a pest and didn't contribute in other ways when we all knew he could be a pretty damn good player.

    Also as the season wore on it seemed like refs got tired of his act and stopped calling penalties he rightfully drew. That may be unfair but it's a reality of things nowadays, and he needs to adjust. Like I said: play hockey, be physical, pick your spots to agitate. If he can do that he'll be great. Instead I think he does it the other way around (agitate, be physical, play hockey).

    Lemieux was a bitter disappointment this year. He showed NO 3rd lin line ability and he p!ssed off pretty much every ref in the league where he became a penalty liability. Rangers probably give him a half of year to figure it out then he's history.

    That's great. My guess is with the postponement of Ivy League hockey and the AHL announcing a tentative start date, he knew the appropriate choice was to sign.

    I know it's extremely unlikely that they'll both be mainstays next season, but holy shit would it be fun if Barron and K'Andre both solidified spots on next year's team.

    I think Barron will start in the NHL my opinion it’s part of this deal. Same as Vesey and Hayes. Officially they had to make the team unofficially they were promised roster spots. Fox probably was too although we all know he earned it and more

    not saying it’s necessarily the right move but with question marks about the AHL and his desire to stay In school we may have had to agree to some things. They’ve been trying for a while now to get this done

    Barron doesn't have the leverage that the others you mentioned did.

    Great news! Gonna be 22 by the time the 2021 season starts (hopefully). 6'4'' 220. Would be great if he can solidify a bottom 6 center role for us.

    While he wasn't as high a pick as Hayes I'd say he had a better first 3 years of NCAA hockey than Hayes.

    Hayes was a FA (and a first round pick). He could choose the team he wanted to go to. Barron doesn't have that leverage.

    Excellent.

    Howden or Strome, good bye?

    That is pretty crazy and without Goudreau and others. How does his skill compare to Hayes? I am guessing he is more physical than Hayes? Which of our scouts discovered Barron?

    Glad this is settled, and he may make it full time to NHL before end of '20-21,

    but i expect he does time in AHL (... if they play ...)
    In recent memory, IIRC, Stepan was only college F with less than 4 full NCAA seasons to make the jump, to NHL, w/o AHL time.
    Even a guy like Hagelin, who had a really strong Sr season, put in some months in Hartford. They actually very comparable per game stats in final seasons.
    Barron as a Junior
    2019-20 Cornell ECAC 29 14 18 32 24 17
    Hagelin as a Senior
    2010-11 Michigan CCHA 44 18 31 49 39

    Cap will factor, if NYR find a way to re-sign Fast, Lemieux, Strome, ADA, guys on ELC who can play will be even more valuable.
    If Barron can play C, and it allows NYR to give Howden some AHL all-situation minutes for some months, I'd be pleased (but coach Quinn doesn't listen to me)
    Role will also play into it.

    But at the moment, having Barron, Kravtsov, Gettinger, Richards, Khdorenko, maybe Fontaine, in the queue may be the strongest young pro F pipeline NYR have had in a long time

    IDK. He doesn't have quite the same leverage yet. I think it's more to do with his college season likely not happening and the AHL announcing that they have at least tentative plans to start in early-December. I have no doubt the Rangers told him he'd be given a very serious look and that the team has a need for someone like him, but I would doubt it went any further than that.

    Who knows.

    I don’t know if they told him he’ll have an NHL spot next year, but they clearly believe he can play at the NHL level

    They were hoping to get him signed to play in this postseason

    yep,
    i am not a prospect expert talent evaluator (just an attentive follower)
    but i place him a bit behind those guys, a bit less ready; in a group with Elmer, Newell, Ronning and (if back) Gropp, the onus on them raise the team's opinion of them
    ... and with Paju and Karl H coming soon,hopefully friendly competition brings out all their best
