The New York Rangers signed their 2009 first round draft pick Chris Kreider to a three year entry level contract on Tuesday. He is fresh off helping his Boston College team win the NCAA championship. He is joining the New York Rangers for their playoff run. Is he NHL ready? More than likely we will find out. If Kreider plays one game in the playoff run, it will count as the first year of his entry level contract. Is that a cost that the Rangers can justify? Is Kreider better in his first ever NHL game than any of the 12 forwards that got the Rangers to the playoffs? I am sceptical. I think the Rangers would be better served saving his entry level contract into the future by saving his NHL debut until next year. It is hard to imagine that he is ready to make an NHL impact in his first game in the Stanley Cup playoffs and if he can’t why blow off a year in his contract for it?
