I think most experts knew Lundqvist had the potential to be an NHL starter,
but it wasn't a forgone conclusion he would be one of the top goalies in the entire sport let alone reach that level so quickly.
I have no problem with the context in which he was taken. Personally, I would've preferred Olesz but I was okay with the pick. Obviously it didn't work out, but I have no problem with the circumstances.
I don't believe the Rangers were convinced they would be able to bring him over at that point.
