What's there to be shocked about? #16 overall pick, top-2 line potential, size that is ready for the NHL. The only shocking thing is the amount of Ranger fans that somehow think that the #46 pick and saving several $100k is somehow a better choice. I said from the beginning that after all the poor ways that Jackass found to spend money, signing RJ represented a very good risk and a good way to spend $$$. For an organization that is so low on top-end prospects, to just turn away from Umberger was incredibly short-sighted.
