Once again, the Rangers are NOT trying to draft the guy who'll wind up being the best player available. I know it sounds wrong if you don't understand the basics of drafting, but let me repeat this one for you: the Rangers are NOT trying to draft the guy who'll wind up being the best player available.

They are trying to draft a guaranteed NHLer. And safety naturally goes against upside. If you pick for a guarantee of making it, you are going to have to surrender some upside. This applies to both Miller and McIlrath.
