    Smart move on Barron's part to sign considering the Ivy League season was delayed and could be cancelled.

    Excited to see what he can do at the pro level.

    If the NCAA season is canceled then he can at least start getting direction and help from the Rangers for prepping for next season (if the AHL season also doesn't happen), so...good move

    I wonder if the Rangers will loan any players to EU teams to get them some gametime. I know they can't do it with everyone, but imagine Huska, Hajek, Barron, Miller, Kravtsov and Wall playing quality hockey in Europe instead of sitting at home waiting for the season to start or not. AHL is aiming for Dec 4th. That would be basically 9 months without competitive hockey for these kids

    I walked right past him one time at a draft event.

    He is B I G.

    As I said in the other thread, I imagine a combination of the Ivy League schools delaying hockey and maybe not even having a season, coupled with the AHL announcing an intended start date, helped compel him to go ahead and sign.

    Well I look forward to seeing his pro game whenever the AHL reopens.

    Heard some very good things about his potential heading into draft day and he has exceeded all expectations. Hopefully he'll be our latest 6th round steal.

    I don't really have insider info. I've just seen MB around campus a lot before and he's a nice dude. Happy for him, go BIG RED

    I think this is much less likely now that it appears that the AHL will have a season. it will be delayed but in line with the NHL season...and 9 months is a long time but really its only a 2 month delay from when the season would have started and when it will start. but ultimately I think decision comes down to how close you think guys are to the NHL. I wouldn't want to send Hajek and Kravtsov over so they can play a few extra month and the trade off is they are lost for the year and can't plan in the NHL....but with guys like Huska or Wall who aren't sniffing the NHL next year anyway I'd be more open...

    the other unknown is what happens with canadian juniors and making sure guys like robertson has somewhere to play...

    Scouted him a few years in a row, the difference between him at 14 and him at 17 was unreal. I haven't gotten to see him live since a couple years but people I've talked to say he continues to improve every single year.

    for any who haven't been paying close attention til now
    Morgan Barron - 2020-21 - Men's Ice Hockey - Cornell University Athletics

    this article referred in a recent tweet by Prospect Park Jess
    Morgan Barron Could Be in New York Very Soon – Sportsology
    "...Even though he was drafted as a center his play along the wall is so good that wing may be the best way to optimize his offense at the next level. He did take 12 face-offs and won seven of them. He has third-line NHL potential if everything breaks right for him..."

    One benefit of the pandemic perhaps. Barron indicated he wanted to finish his Cornell career and he also could have then gone the Vesey route as somewhat of a free agent. Instead he needed a place to play this season so the Rangers system became a much better option.

    Good opportunity for him as we need bottom six forwards. Even more so if we lose one to the Kraken.

    You'll only hear it in the outtakes for the Sopranos or if you walk on the shore for a bit

    Third line potential is a reasonable projection for him. If everything breaks right, he could be something more.

    ‘middle 6’ is definitely a reasonable target..

    I'd be surprised if he makes the team out of camp. Is he going to beat Howden? :laugh:

    But hey, who knows. Barron, Khodorenko, Richards. It's nice to have some fresh faces fighting for a spot
