A little disappointed. I think that the Rangers needed to address the most important needs first. And the most important need was top-end forward talent. Bourret and O'Marra were still available, as was Zagrapan. I also have a hard time believing that the Rangers couldn't have moved one or two steps even further up, which is what I would've been trying when Kopitar came into my sights.

That said, Marc Staal was the best player available overall and there certainly is nothing wrong with picking that. This isn't last year's situation where they picked Montoya when Olesz was arguably the better prospect.
