Which to me is slim to none
Out of camp, I agree. During the season, I could see them being call ups in case of injuries though. It all depends on how they do in Hartford and how they adjust to professional hockey
Age doesn't mean everything when it comes to development. Suggesting that he's a finished product when he has never played above the NCAA level is ridiculous. He will grow as a player just by virtue of playing at a higher level. Or he won't and he'll never be an NHL player, but it has nothing to do with his age.
Was development over at age 22 for Kreider, Miller, Zuccarello, Brassard, Zibanejad?
Yeah, turn out the lights. Clearly the party is over for him.
Considering his weight for his height and age, he’s as good as he gets physically. His point totals aren’t going to ramp up because he’s suddenly playing with NHLers, will have similar point totals over an 82 game season. Having him marinate down on the farm that won’t play this year isn’t possible, he’s in sink or swim territory.
Considering how the team has handled development for the last decade, it might be his best bet.
this is next level Bullshit.
Physically, he might be as developed as he can be, though even then, it's likely that he can make improvements in both training and diet. Maybe he gets to the NHL and realizes he needs to add a step, so he slims down a bit.
Mentally, he still has a lot of development left. If nothing else, he has to learn what will work at this level and find ways to contribute beyond just scoring. Players don't just magically know everything once they reach a certain age. Hell, Zib is still developing at 27.
Thanks for the input, I’ll really take it to heart the next time we get a slightly better than Jimmy Vesey player.
You could be right, but your reasoning is bullshit and chock full of assumptions.
unless you have actual measurements on Barron’s body composition.
I did not realize there was actually a previous level. How does one progress from one to the next?
If one knew the answer to that, one would never progress.
Ahh.....the only true wisdom is knowing that you know nothing.
Well done boys! First class poster shaming. Much deserved. @Amazing Kreiderman @True Blue @romba
COVID-19 and the Rangers’ prospect pool
I think your setting expectations a little too high for Barron. Im a big Barron fan but he probably tops out as a 3rd liner. Probably more than just a plug in role guy but not a ton more than a Brendan Lemieux as far as contribution
This site is so obsessed with youth that many fans here would rather win the draft lottery than the stanley cup. Players are constantly developing, even into their 30’s. Things like poise, leadership, hockey IQ, etc are constantly being developed as a player ages, one of the reasons veteran presence/leadership/intangibles actually matter regardless of whether it’s something pudgy millennials who never played hockey can plot on a fancy chart. If we’re in game 7 OT I would rather have Crosby on my team than McDavid.
Another reason I hope to God we don’t move DeAngelo or Lemieux, they are both a hockey players hockey player. Lindgren too. I love how much character & swagger this team has compared to the milquetoast Rangers of the last decade. Those kind of players are the reason we come back when we’re down 4-0 against MTL, nearly from 6-0 against EDM, etc
Of course you'd rather win the lottery, because that would give you a better shot at winning multiple Cups down the road.
Just kidding, but that's the thought process some people have.
My expectations aren't different from yours I just see more value for their development in letting these kids play a larger role down in the A first
Until McDavid goes coast to coast on you and shatters your face.
I don't think anyone would rather win the draft lottery than the cup, that is absurd. I'd rather win the draft lottery than get knocked out in the first 2 rounds though.
I'd rather have Justin Williams than either of them in game 7
Amazing Kriederman, request for Barron’s body measurements has gone out. Don’t pretend you don’t know them
6'3", 219 lbs. But the question is: Does he have the right intentions and does he try enough?
If the Rangers knew how to develop players, you might have a point. Plenty of evidence demonstrates otherwise.
