I think it's very questionable to agree with Jess Rubenstein about anything hockey related. As for everything prior to that pick was a disaster in 2004 - Montoya, Korpikoski (which ended up costing the Rangers a 1st AND a 2nd), Olver, Byers and Graham...not exactly the stuff I'd hang my hat on as a scouting staff.
