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.
Hagelin, Korpikoski, Miller (soon to be), Lindberg, Fast, Kreider, Hrivik, Yogan. A lot of these guys project as 3rd liners.
