Though if the eternal hope right now is that our only pick in the top 60 in the NHL draft becomes a fourth line center than I think that says about that needs to be said about the selection.
He is a good bottom two line guy and that will translate to the NHL..

Just because better players were picked after him doesn't mean anything? How many guys WON'T make it to the NHL at all? It was the wrong pick but it isn't a reason to give up on the player. The kid was never projected to be anything more than a 3rd or 4th line guy. The fact that his developing into that shouldn't shock anyone nor should it be looked as a negative. The Rangers right or wrong never came out and said this guy was going to be the next Lindros or anything. IIRC they projected him to be a good checking line guy.
