The kid in your avatar has a good amount of upside. I wonder why some of these kids dropped so far. Duclair and Buchnevich have a good amount of skill.
Can't complain with our picks being they were so late.
Really wish we could have moved up to grab a higher potential kid in the second or late first.
I think a quote from Moneyball really applies to the later round picks. They talked about tools and how a 5 tool player is rare(most top 5 picks would be considered 5-tool). Most kids are 1-2 tool players and they look to develop another once in the system.
Seems like thats what we have with these later round guys. They have 1-2 solid tools and the Rangers organization is hoping they can develop another 1 to make these guys NHL caliber players.
