Larry Brooks at the New York Post says the Rangers feel Kreider's decision is not irrevocable and they continue to be in communication with him.
Yesterday, Rangers 2009 first round pick Chris Kreider announced he will be returning to Boston College for his junior season.
Kreider recorded 24 points - 11 goals and 13 assists - in 32 games as a sophomore this winter. He missed five games in March because of a broken Jaw. He has tallied 47 points - 26 goals and 21 assists - in 70 games during his two seasons at Boston College.
...don't think you're going to find too many people who are going to argue with this move. Just 11 goals isn't exactly lighting it up and from everything I've read on Kreider it sounds like he's not ready to make the jump to the next level.
...having siad that, it would have been nice to get him in the Rangers system as soon as possible. A full year in Hartford learning how to become a professional may have been better for him. Either way, Kreider is still a huge part of the Rangers future.
