i'd definatly agree with the people saying he wasn't a reach at #6. after the first 3 picks, IMO there weren't any "sure fire" top line players or guys you just *had* to have. sure tukonen might have been nice...olesz (i really liked him before the draft but i'm kinda cautious now hearing some things about him...i think he took another hard hit while playing in the czech republic and was injured and some have said he's played weak at times since his concussion) but i still think that if montoya reaches his potential, he's much much more valuable than any other player the rangers could have taken at that spot.
