Partly because of my nationality I'd love to see the Rangers pick the Finnish goalie Juuse Saros, who's ranked # 1 among European goalies. He might be a second rounder if it wasn't for his rather small size of 5'10" which will drop him to the third. Highly praised up and coming Finnish goalie who's name has been brought up here also a couple of times. He's been doing great in his Finnish junior team HPK taking them from a middle of the pack team to being third in the league in 2011-2012 and then being the champions this spring. He was also awarded as the best goalie of the U18 WC tournament this spring when the Finnish national team reached the bronze medal. Next season I think we can see him getting his shot in the Finnish Elite League.
Here's a short video from his combine:

Someone has also uploaded full games from the U18 WC to youtube, so you can search for Juuse Saros and take a look of his playing style there.
