So long as the Rangers keep drafting significantly better than the average team, we'll be ok.

We don't need to draft the best player in every round - if our guy consistently turns out to be one of the top 3-4 best players available at that point, it will make us permanent Cup contenders.
How in God's name did you get that out of my post?

I was merely making the point that we shouldn't hold the players drafted around him against him if they turn out to be better. I was throwing out the concept of viewing him as a promising Ranger prospect rather than 'a 10th overall pick who should be a star.'
