How about putting Drury on the 4rth line and PK .... might not be the most respectful thing to do to a Capt but that is where he fits in best.
The internet hasn't helped - every clown has a draft blog and people seem to fall in love with a potential pick based on nothing more than web reports without ever having seen anybody play. When the Rangers staff pick a guy like Stepan, Kreider or McIlrath who they clearly believe can be successful in NY, the fans go crazy and moan about the guy they wanted b/c he had a cool Russian name and Pierre Mcguire () thought would be good.

I just roll with it and trust this scouting staff at this point.
