The New York Rangers / Team USA.

Love it.

Its right. The scouting staff knows Grachev better than anyone else. They must have soured on him for some reason. His time in the NHL last season was a major Meh, but then again he still had time to develop, a lot of time.

But i think what this tells you is the Rangers arent going to get attached to prospects like they have in the past, only to watch them fail to make it to the NHL. Us fans who get emotional at times like these have to take a step back and realize that not every prospect makes it, so if you have a chance to reset and go for a guy with potential then you do it before you completely lose the value of a guy like Grachev. Look where Sangs is. Its the nature of the beast.

Tough to see him go, but Fogarty seems high risk/reward which is what this draft is all about imo.
