It took 5 years but Sather got more value out of that draft than most teams. I'm not defending the Jessiman pick i'm just saying that most of the points the anti-jessiman crowd had are now moot...
also the rangers traded a guy who they developed for a 1st and 2nd round pick..i don't know about you but i'd rather have the guys that are developed at 22 than guys who are unknown at 18..
yesterday was a final good bye to the jessiman debate...the rangers made up for the missed asset.....i don't know how anybody can see it another way...
See it however you want, we still didnt DRAFT a guy in the 1st round that made it from that year.
Whats next, we won the '79 draft cause we ended up getting Messier in 91 !!!???
