When you have a lousy farm system (look how many picks from 2000 - 2003 never played a game in the NHL, let alone for the Rangers), didn't have a first round pick in two of the previous three drafts, you take the guy who you can bank on scoring 20 — and I don't even care if he steps in immediately.
After Lee Falardeau, Mike Walsh, Marcus Jonasen, Shawn Collymore, Nathan Martz, Petr Preucil, Pontus Petterson, Rob Flynn, Joey Crabb and Kim Hirschovits I'd do back flips for someone to score 20 goals. That would be 16 more than all those combined scored. And 20 more than they ever scored for the Rangers.
