Better that they go on a long run as there's no reason for Gropp to go to Hartford because they're very much out of the AHL playoffs. I don't know if it would serve him to go to Greenville, but they're doing very well in the ECHL.

    80 points in 63 games for Gropp.
    I think playing anywhere against grown men would be good for him.

    Seattle won the WHL Championship.

    Gropp had a goal and an assist in each of the last 3 games. He missed 4 games in one of the early rounds. Finished with 7 goals 12 assists for 19 points in 16 games. On to face Sean Day in the Memorial Cup.

    Looks like the passenger line of thought wins the day. I would add that he was man-sized in that league and has now lost both that advantage as well as Barzal.

    Essentially, barring some dramatic change, his NHL aspirations are over almost before they began.

    Prospect Update: Gropp With Three Goals in Two Games
    by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com
    December 3rd, 2017

    Ryan Gropp, Adam Chapie and Vince Pedrie all scored goals in Hartford's 5-4 shootout win over Rochester Friday night in the American Hockey League. Brandon Crawley had two assists while Pedrie, Vinni Lettieri and Neal Pionk had one helper each. Goaltender Alexandar Georgiev finished with 34 saves for the win.

    The Wolf Pack dropped a 4-3 overtime decision to the Toronto Marlies Saturday night. Gropp posted his first career multi-goal/point game to give him five thus far in his rookie campaign. Letteri netted his ninth of the year, while the newly acquired Peter Holland had an assist. Georgiev had 35 saves in the loss.

    Isn't every scorer, especially a winger, a passenger in some sense? It's too early to say this for Gropp, even if he's been trending that way.

    It's now 4 goals in the past 4 games and he's starting to generate a lot more shots. This is not being a passenger:

    We have some decent playmakers in Zucc, Buch, Miller and Hayes... so being a passenger may not be the end of the world. As long as he can put the puck in the net of course

    Yea - This team is in bad need of a guy or two who doesn't need the puck on their stick. Call it a sniper, call it a passenger...whatever. They need more shoot-first players.
