On the team or in the NHL. The rangers havent had a tremendous amount of problems drafting so much as developing or hanging on. Which is a totally different area.
As for Tkaczuk, it's really a shame. The kid had size, scoring,leadership and after his first year in the AHL i thought he might make a good second line player, but it all just kinda went downhill from there. One of those weird things where a career just falls like that.
I always liked him, thought he was a character kid and i wish him luck. I wouldn't be totally opposed to giving the kid a look, but people expecting Rico Fata part two are going to be disappointed. Fata showed a lot more in the minors whereas Tkaczuk needs to learn to play all over again. At 24 time is running out, we got Fata at the age of what? 21.
I still think Fata is going to make a solid NHL'er in Pitts. Not a star but a solid contributer. Just wish the rangers gave him more of a chance.
