Bloodlines are BS and picking Jared Staal in this draft would be a wasted pick. Much along the lines of the Ferraro brothers, letting family names even enter into the consideration in drafting a player is a wasted exercise. Letting these human interest story backgrounds tinge what should only be quantitative & qualitative study of eligible draftees is what leads to another Hugh Jessiman. Stay away from Jared Staal.
The only family member I would like to see the Rangers acquire is Joel Lundqvist. Not because of his name, but because he's a fine and smart player.
