4th liner players are a dime a dozen. They can be found anywhere and everywhere. It's seems our whole farm system is full of 3rd and 4th liners.

Go for the home run every once in a while. Judging by what I've read we don't have anyone in the system with this skill set. Kreisler is a safer pick to be a good player but this guy can be a first liner type player. If it works then its incredible. If not then we aren't hurt. There will be another 3rd or 4th liner that can replace him.

Besides, I don't think the rangers threw caution to the wind here. Judging by how cautious they've always been with their picks I find it extremely disbelievable that they'd just throw away the pick. I'd be pretty confident to assume that they've done plenty of research on the kid, talked to him, and feel not only is he coming over but that they can work on his work ethic issues.
