alot of good players were drafted late. Dustin Byfuglien was an 8th round pick, Zetterberg, etc.

having said that, at least the rangers dealt the 6th round draft pick for an 19 year old rather than a 25-27 year old AHL vet.

at least Niemi has some type of future and just finished juniors. this deal has nothing but upside. at worst rangers got a depth dman like a Joel Bouchard incase of injuries down the road.
