But the rangers didn't give that pick up thinking it'd be a top 5 pick. They gave it up thinking it'd be a 25-30 pick, which even in a deeper draft, could be 2nd round talent. You can't operate your team around a lockout expecting a whole season to be cancelled. They had a chance to significantly improve the offense after being two wins away from a SC visit and they did just that. I don't care if it's a lottery and every team would have a chance to win that number one pick. If there is/was a season the rangers wouldn't have been there and I can live with that.
