Sounds like the players the Rangers drafted have some potential to be at least useful players down the road.

I'm surprised they bypassed Slepyshev (not drafted, maybe effort level not always what you'd like, difficult to lure him from the KHL?), Zharkov (not as physical as often as you'd like?), Prokhorkin; Emil Lundberg (just noticed he wasn't drafted; maybe still too raw?) [Assessments above mentioned in the Hockey News draft preview]. Still, I would have traded down from #28 overall, but what can you do.

Other notes, was surprised Brandon Whitney lasted until the 7th round, was listed among the top 5 goalies going in, apparently, the teams though otherwise; Matheson went earlier (Florida, #23 overall) went earlier than I thought.
