The Rangers have their Milan Lucic, he just happens to play defense instead of forward. I am 100% okay with that.

Do they need skill? Of course. I think it would have been nice to possibly go a bit riskier with some of the later 1st rounders that have followed instead of Miller or Skjei but they have a mold. They are going to a big team that skates well and is physical. He fits.

He also processes the game well. I'm not sure why you portray him as John Erskine of the AHL. The kid was playing top-pairing after missing half a season with a busted knee cap where he couldn't train or skate at all.
erskine maybe. komisarek probably more likely.
