How many times have we seen high draft picks coming off their entry level deals before having shown the ability to live up to their draft expectations get paid as if they will? I think the Rangers did well not to do that here. 2x$2.1M is a small commitment, and he’ll still be a RFA, with a QO of $2.4M, when it’s done, so there’s very little risk here compared with the potential upside. The biggest risk is that he starts playing more like a 2nd overall pick and they’ll wish they had locked him up longer when they could still get him cheap, but I think they’ll be thrilled if that’s the way this turns out.
