Sometimes those big dudes take more time to develop. If the Flames let him go, I'd 100% add him to what should be a very young and stacked Hartford team. Clowe, Clarkson, Bryan Bickell, and Moulson are all examples of that.

It's funny because the Hawks look like geniuses for taking Brandon Saad when there was every bit of chance that Saad could have had a similar career as Aliu. His skating was criticized which is why he dropped to round two.

Sometimes you never know.

As for picks; the Rangers need to add more. Even if it's not top two, trade those depth guys like Asham/Pyatt/etc. to create contract spots, and add like 5th-7th round picks to swing for the fences with Russians, Swedes, Slovaks, etc.
