And, Ray, I'm going to disagree with your assessment that there were better players at 15 than Miller. Pretty much every report I read had the draft being all over the map after #8. I took that to mean that BPA was going to be in the eye of the beholder. I said for a while that Scheifele was my first choice, but, when he was gone, I was going to be satisfied with either Miller or McNeil. From what I've read, Miller fits the Ranger mold more than McNeil did, so I was satisfied with the pick. As for the next three picks, it was encouraging to see the Rangers adopt the approach they did, meaning they were willing to take gambles on players they felt had boom potential. Given the overall depth of the organization, that should be the approach going forward.
