I'm not totally sure why Immonen wasn't given a good chance, but yes it could just be they felt his skating and mobility weren't up to snuff and the rest of his abilities didn't make up for it. The one thing in the Rangers defense, in my opinion, would be that you'd think some other team would have tried to pick him up if the Rangers were just being stupid about him.

edit: And I know I really shouldn't, but I'm hanging a lot of hopes on Stepan panning out to be a solid offensive contributor in the future. I don't know why, I guess I just figure that one of these skilled guys the Rangers pick up after the 1st round and who go to college will have to pan out eventually
