We have failed to find those 3. liners for many years now. Hagelin have been the only
one we have brought in or up the last 3 years. I would either have a 3. liner with
some physical play then a top 6 player in 5 years. Imo NYR have picked way
to many project players in McIlwrath, Kreider and Skjei the last years for a team
planning to compete in the next 5 years after drafting Kreider. If the window
is in the next 3 years wo dont really need a emerging 2. line goalscorer in 4 years
as we need a good 3. liner in 2.
At this point I think NYR should consider the players nhl-readiness as a big part
of selecting their bpa.
