Sather's ranger draft pattern

sather's draft pattern since being the ranger GM is that he has not picked a defensemen in the first round, he usually gets a d-man in the 2nd round (hes done that 3 of 4 years) or in the 3rd

with us having two first round picks, slats could easily move up to draft two top ten or maybe two top 15 picks using some combination of the leaf pick we have, with one or two of our 2nd rounders and a player

however it doesnt look likely sather will draft barker even though he would be the prospect most ranger fans want if we dont win the lottery

anyone think slats will follow pattern and draft two fowards in the first round and wait until the 2nd to draft a d-man or two? i can see slats moving up to get two top ten picks or maybe even the 15th pick and him drafting some combo of ladd, chipchura, or radulov. That is unless slats plans to break the pattern by getting carson in the late 1st round... as much as id like to take barker, sather never drafts what the fans, especially the ones this board calls for in the 1st round, except for once... being blackburn

anyone see him following suit, drafting the most talented players or will this be the year he breaks the cycle and addresses the fact that we have plenty of defensemen prospects but only two or three top 4 defensemen?
