As far as the rangers draft, not one person can really say who the rangers will draft, but rather who they think they will. Aquiring guys like Balej and Kondratiev and Rachunek gave the rangers more speed, and I wouldn't be suprised if they did opt for a guy with speed like Radulov. I know most would like Ladd but no matter who they pic we walk out with a good pick so long as its not a stretch, like taking Stafford at #6
I would be pretty suprised if Stafford is available after the first 12. His stock is raising.

The Rangers are aquiring certain types of players. Obviously the skills will differ - but they are changing the focus of the organization. That is pretty obious. If I were the Rangers, I wouldn't touch Radulov AT ALL. I think he might be their worst choice of any of the consensus top 8.
