your realize the draft is an entry draft for the entire league not just the rangers...
Where some of us disagree with you is that getting a player years later after a miserable failure does not square the deal to us. The Rangers could have (should have) just as easily picked a winner in that infamous draft and still gotten Zherdev now.
When so many outstanding players come out in one year and your team somehow manages to find the single piece of coal in a bag of overflowing diamonds it is a monumental failure whether or not you acquire one of those players years later.
While Zherdev may or may not turn out to be a jewel in the future (he certainly isn't so far), a whole bunch of that class are already jewels.
Drafts like that year is where teams get franchise, or close to it, players. That is why this whole topic remains so frustrating and contentious.
