Where would we be ???

Where would we be if 2007 1st round draft pick Alexei Cherepanov hadn't died.

It's really to bad that Cherepanov died that night in Russia some people compared him to Jagr and even if he had become half the player Jagr was we would be set for the long haul.

Just think how good the Ranger's young crop of players we would have--

Cherepanov--top 6 forward
Kreider--top 6 forward
Hagelin--top 9 forward--maybe top 6 forward
Miller--top 9 forward--maybe top 6 forward
Fasth--top 9 forward
Thomas--top 9 forward
Bourque--possible top 9 forward
Yogan--possible top 9 forward
I know there's a few more but most fans will agree with this list

Then of course we still have

Cally
Dubi
Stepan
AA

Just to name a few,

I'm not saying one player makes a team but Cherepanov death did set this team back a few years but the future is still bright with young players trying to push the vets in the next year or so.


Not only do we have multiple young guns but trades chips for this years deadline and maybe next years.

Good time to be a Ranger fan.

Flame away if you must.
