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.
I don't know about his butt handed to him. Didn't Chucko win the rocket sprints, and Korpi won sittups?

Chucko was friggin huge... he looked more like a linebacker, then a hockey player.
