About time. That’s all I can say. The Rangers finally assigned defenseman Tony DeAngelo to Hartford after the most questionable usage of a kid I’ve seen in recent memory. DeAngelo played eight games for the Rangers so far (out of ten), but you wouldn’t even know it.
AV’s usage of DeAngelo was troubling. Using him only for powerplay time was silly. It didn’t help the team or the kid. He needs to play and grow. Now he has the opportunity to do just that.
Believe it or not, I’m happy about this move. It’s about time they got smart with his playing time.
