    Howden is practicing on 4th line. Guess that means they don't look at him as a top 9?

    I think it speaks more to Howden's play being more suited for the 4th line than Andersson's. Howden is also just further ahead developmentally.

    Would rather have Anderson here and send McLeod packing. 4th line minutes and practicing with the big club is better than Hartford, and McLeod sucks.

    I can't think of a better way to retard a young center's development -- whether its Howden or Lias -- than sticking him on a line with McCleod, who screams out "no longer able to play at an NHL level."

    Yes sir, same here. He was physical and very effective yesterday. He and Vesey were swarming and had a nice forecheck going. He looks like he can be relied on to be consistent and bring elements like defense, speed, effort and forechecking every night. Has offense chops with his quickness and should develop into a very nice passer.

    Here's a take... Howden is much like Stepan... if Step was faster, taller, stronger, more energetic, more assertive defensively and had better hair.

    RJ, it is confusing if you base your understanding on a too literal interpretation. Simply, the idea that Howden is a 4C is very far from his projections. It is not accurate. It may just mean Quinn does not want Lias on the 4th line and he did not beat out the guys he plans on giving top 9 minutes. Maybe he expects the 4th line to forecheck more or be gritty and he thinks Howden is better at that role. One of Chytil, Howden and Lias was going to Hartford.

    I think Howden deserves to be kept up over Andersson at this point. Just find the quote confusing.

    Nah, the Rangers are not going to put a kid in the role of 13th forward. Pretty sure that became McLeod's role the minute Belesky separated his shoulder. I'm hoping he sees very limited spot duty, which means Lettieri is the only fringe player on the 4th line and he seems ready to play a pesky forechecking game. Sod16, that should not slow up Howden's development.

    Sidenote - really would like to see Vesey on the line with Howden. It looked like they had nice chemistry and communication going and they both played their best game, together.

    Jus' sayin' if when they come out with those stats on total minutes played with different players, after 41 games, I don't want to see Howden having played with McCleod for more than 90 seconds. (This is somewhat aside from the fact that I don't want to see anyone playing with McCleod for more than 90 seconds).

    Not happening, none of the kids are spending prolonged periods in the pressbox. You forgot we have a coach and GM who now have a real rebuilding plan that includes these kids.

    If they aren't getting significant minutes, they'll go to Hartford. Lias struggled on the PK, wasn't seeing PP time. Lack of special team's minutes would cut his minutes further, he gets to work on both in Hartford. And be the 1C.

    Sod, I agree. We have enough toughness on the blueline to not see McLeod more than once or so a month.
