<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Spanky227</b></div><div>Haley is a 13th forward that won't get playing time.. in terms of Chytil and Kravtsov-- it makes sense to have them in the AHL.

- He is absolutely atrocious at faceoffs
- Bad in the defensive zone
- Horrible pre-season performance

Result: he needs to learn how to play center in the AHL. The rangers could only use him at wing, but they need him to be a center long term. Give him a year to develop at the position in the AHL.

- Played well enough in preseason to play top 9
- Due to rangers current roster makeup and predictions, would be playing a 4th line role
- Rangers have to build up the value of Strome (rfa), Namestnikov (UFA), Fast (UFA) who are most likely gone by the TDL
- You have three top 50 prospects in the entire NHL in the AHL between Chytil, Kravtsov and Sheshterkin (arguably top 25). With the additions to Hartford, they should no longer be a bottom feeder. Let Chytil and Kravtsov build chemistry together and they could be in the top 6 come trade deadline (if kreider/strome/namestnikov are traded).

Result: Better to get top pairing minutes in AHL while adjusting to the smaller rink size instead of 4th line minutes</div></div>

Absolutely agree. People are getting over the top upset but this makes the most sense. Chytil has to learn to battle harder and control the puck as well he loses it too easily every time. I would think Howden should be sent down since he has been atrocious defensively as well and doesnt fit in for the bottom 6 which is where he will most likely play.
