Tim Erixon will be the #5 D. NYR brass feels Erixon is NHL ready. They also felt Ryan McDonagh was NHL ready this time last summer. He was beat out of a spot by Michael Sauer who was waiver eligible. NYR don't have any waiver issues on D this time.
I think any vote here of MDZ, Erixon or Vtank is a good one. It is going to be a battle in camp. Based on top picks Vtank is left out but good thing its not about that
I just would hate to have Vtank go down and not be given a chance to play some NHL games. I am pretty sure he would take off back to the KHL if he cant crack the lineup this yr and that would stink
of course they could package Vtank, Zuke , 2nd rounder at the deadline for a LW. Just a hunch but that's far away
