I totally root for him to succeed, I just hold a top draft pick to a high standard, I don't want them to just be on the team, I want them to make a difference at least more times than not.
The Rangers were not the only team that had McI ranked in the top 12. He seems to be on track; I think we'll end up being happy with the pick unless you wanted to take a risk on Tarasenko.
