    I couldn't make it through the article. It's all been covered.

    It all comes down to pushing Lias up by pushing Howden down. We talked about it ad nauseum.

    It's really about Lias fanbois gonna fanboi.

    Do you think Howden is effective, or something, he's not.

    Doesn't matter what we think the org as a whole isn't buying whatever it is Lias is selling. Are we going to have faith in JD, JG and DQ or not? Two outta three there for me.

    Unsure. Lias Andersson represents the frustration at the front office, at the moment, regardless of which side you are on.

    I’m sorry but I just don’t see the huge deal this has been made into after 60-odd games for a 21 year old kid whose skill set and ceiling was never going to blow the doors off of anyone, especially offensively.

    He has been not good. He should not have been picked at 7.
    These are easily observed.

    Neither of those things or a host of others damn him into never becoming an NHL player of value.
    And we won’t really know for a while either.

    We all know what the development curve is roughly for most kids.
    Give it time.

    And it’s too early for the “wasted pick” or “needs a fresh start” talk.

    Everything is on the table for Rangers when it comes to Lias Andersson

    Credit is owed the Rangers for treating Lias Andersson as they would any other young prospect required to earn minutes and not as an entitled seventh-overall selection of the 2017 entry draft that the Swede was just hours after the club had obtained that pick in the Derek Stepan deal with Arizona.

    Credit to the front office led first by Glen Sather and now by John Davidson for not directing David Quinn to abandon his principles and give the youngster ice time the coach did not believe Andersson had warranted in order to make what appears an unwise draft decision look good.
    “We’re open to everything,” Quinn said when asked about shifting Andersson to the flank, where he lined up 10 times for the Rangers last season. “I think moving Lias to wing is an option, too.

    “I think if he plays well, there’s an opportunity on the wing. I think everything is on the table for him if he goes down there and plays well and if we bring him up, maybe we do put him on the wing. But at his age I want to continue to give him a fair opportunity in the middle.”

    I don't disagree with the rationale, it's the pretending that everybody gets held to it, which is just not the case.

    Puts to rest any blame that maybe aimed at whoever he's on the ice with. Clearly they as a org think he's gotten what he's earned which is a ticket to lovely Hartford. Good luck, time to step up.

    Exactly. I think basically everybody but one has been held to the rationale, which was always the crux of the problem.

    What are the exceptions? The guy health bombed Staal lol! He sent Chytil to the A and Kravtsov back to Russia!

    Howden again? Maybe... Just maybe... It's because Quinn knows Howden is playing about as well as he can... And thinks Andersson can play better?

    Maybe, or even probably, but, if this is as good as Howden gets he's no third liner. What has he shown to deserve his role? I have no qualms with him playing over Andersson as the 4th C on merit at this point.

    I guess we'll see when Zibanejad is healthy what happens, if Strome shifts to wing, and Howden remains in 3C spot I guess we'll know the jig is up.

    Hajek has also received ample leash despite also seeming to struggle with pace of play. Why is he even here, honestly, and partnered with Trouba no less. But sctach Staal on Girardi night. OK.

    Also, wake me up when our best goaltender is even on the roster.

    Maybe agree on Hajek there, but that's just growing pains.

    I still keep coming back to Howden at 3C is nothing more than a message to Lias.

    Igor not being here yet is fine, dont want him to experience things like what just happened in Tampa yet. Let him dominate in the A for some months first.

    Agree on Howden tho, he’s not doing anything offensively for this teams. Im fine with him playing 4th line and some PK, but that should be it. When Mika is back he cant play 3C.
