    lol, let’s hope he’s not 23 before we get back to a hockey Regular season.

    Honestly, when will we get back to packed indoor arenas along with a travel schedule including overnights in multiple cities?

    Excited to see him as a pro next season. I don't think another year in college would've hurt him at all but with the way things are going I think he made the right move.

    I would love for the team to take his brother in the second round. He may not pan out, but if he does he could be a good player

    this is obvious and should go without saying

    however

    less than a year difference. With all the uncertainty he could have waited it out. This contract has been out there for going on 2 years now. Was getting into crunch time

    There’s no way we’re playing outside of hubs to start next season. No way

    That would be the dumbest move ever. That's a Sather-move.

    Don't think he is behind Fontaine and about same level as Richards.

    Yeah but Hayes could have spent his final year at Cornell and become a free agent as well.

    there isn't going to be a college season. his option were to sign and play in the AHL or sit at home doing nothing. and people thought he might leave school last summer and it was expected he would leave after one more year. he had no leverage. he wasn't going to sit out a year

    Excellent signing. This is another player who IMO will send Lemieux packing if he doesn't improve his hockey IQ a lot very soon. You can't be a idiot like Lemieux is and constantly put your team down a man when you are a role player. You need to play top flight defense and don't take penalties. Something Lemieux consistently doesn't do.

    Make no mistake, the Rangers are definitely expecting Barron to both push and potentially compliment guys like Howden and Lemieux, and possibly even Chytil if the latter finds himself in a third line role.

    I kinda have high hopes for this kid but is he going to get rushed into playing some kind of role on this team if he isn't ready much like every other rookie, Hajek, LA, Kravs?

    Put Lemieux on a winning team with a "defined" role and he'll be good to go...

    Lemieux is totally cool, as long as we look at him as a (for the love of god what was his name ... got it) Derek Dorsett-type player and not a Callahan-type player.

    Not an accurate comment about Lemieux and penalties. I believe he is among the league leaders in drawing penalties per minutes played and actually has a net positive drawn vs. taken. Lemieux is a good prospect - will likely take less penalties as he matures and there may be some offense there to be had. Time will tell.

    I'm curious how much development you think he has left, given that he'll be 25 mid-next season and has four professional seasons under his belt.

    Lemieux needs to be given a defined role and also needs to focus a little more on hockey rather than the extra BS.

    I don't want him to stop trolling the opponent completely, but he needs to pick his spots better. There is more than enough of a skill set there for him to be a valuable player in a bottom 6 role.

    Fair point. Don't see him as more than a gritty bottom six winger.

    That said - he's rated by Evolving Hockey as the Rangers 2nd best defensive forward. He's among the best in the league at drawing penalties. He adds an element of physicality which the Rangers need more of, not less. He's a good skater. He did score 12 goals in his one full season. So there is something there to build on.

    and Lemieux can be effective in front of opponent's goalie
