Adam Rotter: The Rangers had two options with DeAngelo, play him regular minutes in the NHL or send him to Hartford. They opted to send him to Hartford and go with Nick Holden as the 6th defenseman for the time being. DeAngelo has a world of talent offensively but it seems clear that as of right now Alain Vigneault doesn't have a lot of trust in him unless it's in more of a PP type of role. The Rangers have tried to use DeAngelo lately in sort of a "DH" type of PP role and from time to time that can work, but DeAngelo is not a finished product. He needs to play and he will get a lot of ice time in Hartford and should play in all situations. I'd be surprised if we didn't see him back up here in a few weeks, whether it's because of injury or something else, but for right now the organization thinks that it's in DeAngelo's best interest to play for the Wolf Pack.
