Noticed they had Chris Chucko doing workouts. Wonder if the Rangers would have taken him at #36 instead of Olver if he had fallen that far.
Rockstrom suggested the Rangers trade down if Korpikoski was there at #6 because he would be there later in the draft.
I dunno, Chucko got his butt handed to him in his workouts head to head against Korpikoski. The fact that Billy Ryan also got a workout and the Rangers picked him at #80 proves that the players you saw on the show weren't necessarily guys the Rangers would draft with high picks. Chucko was just there because he was going against Korpikoski. It also just happened to make Korpikoski look that much better.
