It's hard to pass up a player that has such a nice combo of size + skating. Hopefully the hockey IQ thing will work itself out (they said that about Kreider). Regardless, I'm not sure there were any sure-fire impact offensive players at our draft position.
I actually said the same thing about the Rangers defensive depth in the prospect group to my dad a couple of months ago and predicted we would take a D. I forgot about that until just now.

Future Drow? Does Del Zotto think he's a dark elf?
