    I doubt it. Don't think it's been open to the public since Tarrytown.

    Day and Ronning to Hartford, they didn't even get a game. Obviously the org agrees that their next development stage is in Hartford. No reason to rush these kids from Juniors.

    Ronning — I think the Rangers realized Ronning isn’t going to be able to fight for a spot on the team with the influx of wingers, and they want him to be comfortable transitioning to the AHL. Ronning’s 60+ goal showing in the WHL last year has created insane expectations for him, and we all need to accept that if he has 20 goals in the AHL this year it’s a huge success. Let him grow.

    I am a little surprised that Ronning was cut while Ryan Gropp was left up, but again, if Gropp is here as fodder because they know there isn’t a battle there, then so be it. Ronning’s development is more important at this time.

    Day — Again. Day was never making the team out of camp. I know the instinct is to say “I would have liked to see him in one preseason game” but this is another situation where it’s probably better for him to be in the slow cooker than putting him right on the fire. Especially since it won’t be easy for him to make the AHL squad with that logjam, so may as well have him comfortable from the get go.

    Seems fair enough.

    As a sidenote, some fans misunderstand that sending Ronning to Hartford for the start of Camp does not mean that he is not a stronger prospect than Gropp or others still at Ranger camp.

    Ronning cant win a puck battle to save his life. Easy cut.

    They said the same about his father and St. Louis, Zuc, Marchessault, etc. There is more room for small skilled players in today's NHL. They usually take longer too. Definitely easy "cut". He's just a kid from Juniors! Like all good prospects he is moving up to compete at the next level and continue to develop his game in the AHL.

    I can't believe Day is only 20. It feels like he's been in the system forever. Hopefully he has a good season in Hartford this year.

    Not sure how cutting a player as preseason starts is good for such a players psyche. Kid was talking all summer about how he wanted a chance to prove what he's got to the staff........ Instant cut.

    At least give the kid a look or a chance to hang with the club and it's pros... Gropp, Schneider (whom I liked last pre season as well as Carey) Mcleod, get to stay and play but this scoring machine from Jr's gets no looks.

    I thought we were going to see a different process. Not the usual already planned out outlook.

    I hope he takes it well and it pushes him to prove that he's got something to offer.

    I think Halverson is hurt. Was wondering if Quinn would like to see what his former player had. Guess he's just not playing and is healing.

    I'm assuming Ronning was told what to work on during prospect camp during June. He looked horrible at Traverse city, like a kid that was only there because someone knew his dad. The few clips of him at training camp were embarrassing, him struggling along the boards or quickly getting pushed off the puck during drills.
