The rangers add White who is a pending UFA to try him out. Puck-mover, good skater, gritty.

Kindl is a big guy who can skate, move the puck and has a good shot. Probably peaks out as a #5 d-man.

Tatar is a very good young, skilled player. Top-6 very soon. Electrifying and good on both ends of the rink.

(2) picks.
Definitely need more upside, IMO. Kindl is a guy who just never reached his ceiling. He's 26 now. He's a bottom-pairing guy who is decently mobile, but never really developed his other skills.

White is a bit of a malcontent when things aren't going his way. He was a headcase in Carolina, and has played himself into the press box in Detroit. Not a fan.

Tatar looks like a good player and is the only real piece that gets me excited.

Picks are what they are. I.e., a longshot at ever being something tangible. The first in 2014 might be more appealing if it was this year's.
