Is a call up really needed right now?

Yesterday, Larry Brooks made some noise in the Ranger community when he mentioned that the Rangers are looking to sign Marek Hrivik, an undrafted free agent who signed an ATO with the Connecticut Whale. In the AHL postseason, Hrivik had four goals in the Whale’s sweep of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. Hrivik is certainly intriguing, and his success in the playoffs is worth noting.

However, all this talk about calling him up is, well, stupid. Hrivik isn’t even signed, he’s on an ATO.  If he signs, he would be signed for next year, not this year. You can’t call up someone on an ATO to a professional club. He wasn’t on the reserve list either, meaning there’s no way he can play. The reason why Chris Kreider was able to play was because the Rangers placed him on the reserve list, thus giving them an opportunity to sign him for the current season.

Long story short: Hrivik simply cannot play for the New York Rangers. Case closed.

But, this “news” brings me to a different point. Do the Rangers really need to call someone up right now?
