at this point (so early on) we must think we're going deep into the playoffs (why think negatively at this stage of the year?) so we will have a late pick...

therefore i go best player available or a scoring forward with size and preferably a winger.

We have a lot of good young centers behind Drury and Gomer so more help for the post Jagr/Straka/Shanny era on Wing is best.

I want wings and defensemen. We can always get a center, not to mention that our centers (Gomez, Drury, Dubinsky and Betts, as well as Anisimov and Moore) will be here for a while.

it may be too early, in terms of location of picks/and teams picking where, however i think it is a good way to track the players and potential etc.. how they progress and how our team does as well..

I wouldn't mind taking a Goaltender for the long term (especially if we trade Montoya)... Wingers are a MUST!!!

Goaltending

I don't know if the Rangers would want to use another high pick on a goaltender like last season, but Harri Sateri has played great so far in the WJC's for Finland and could be a solid pick up in the 2nd round, where I think he will more than likely go.

I'm not giving up of Lafleur or however its spelt, but goaltending is def. a position where this organization lacks depth. I think the Ranger focus should be on a LW or Center in the first, then goaltending and right wing depth.

This is not the kind of draft where you're going want to spend a 1st-2nd on a goalie.

Having Lundqvist and Montoya already, I see no need to spend a high pick on a goalie. I say draft one or two 3rd round and on and hope you have one turn out at least half as good as Lundqvist.

If the Rangers deal Montoya at the deadline, the Rangers might have to take a goalie in the 2nd or 3rd round. There should be plunty good goalies available in those rounds.

I think in the 2nd round the Rangers have to go for the best player available, because this draft is so deep. The addition of another quality RW'er couldn't hurt as well.

I'm hoping for the best player available at every pick. I've never been a fan of drafting based on need in any sport outside the NFL. There's just too much uncertainty and roster turnover from year to year in the NHL, it's difficult to predict what the team will need 3 or more years down the road.

That being said, I wouldn't want a center.

That's always been my philosophy as well. The draft is such a huge crapshoot, might as well go with who the best player available is to increase your odds of getting something worthwhile.

I don't think he will be available when the Rangers pick, unless he falls like Chereponov did last season or the Rangers trade up. I can see him going in the 10-20 range. He could drop a little bit because it has been said he has some character issues.

I don't know about this guy. Sure he's got moves but he's not really a shift-to-shift force. What happens if NHL'ers figure out his tricks? He's VERY undisciplined and chooses when to show up and assert himself physically.

The one plus I can say that speaks about his attitude is he'll act differently with a leadership role. Saw him in a tourney with the C and he looked like a totally different player than when he did not have a letter. Did the types of things you look for in an important prospect. Backchecked hard, hit hard, etc.

Take from that what you want, but I'm still torn.

I do like Eberle and Hodgson better though for sure if you want a smallish, offensive forward.

Like you said 10-20 is probably spot on for his range barring a huge drop.

Just bumping this thread with a quick question:

Hurricanes (conditional) Traded Brad Isbister to Rangers for Jakub Petruzalek, 2008 conditional fifth round pick (?-?) on 11/21/06


Does anyone know if the Rangers still have this pick or were the conditions met and its gone to the Canes?

My 2 cents:

If things go poorly after the all star break: Bogosian
If things go better: Colborne

No idea about that, but I do know the Rangers have the Canes 3rd round pick this year from the Cullen trade, but the Kings get the Rangers 3rd round pick because they were unable to sign Jan Marek by the beginning of this season. The Rangers also have the Stars 5th round pick from the Mike Green trade.

Colten Teubert...in hopes that he can become a little more than just a Hollweg on defense. Rangers seriously lacking a nasty defender.

Look, the bottom line here is that some team is going to envision what he could become as he fills out into a 220-pounder with that impressive skillset, and grab him early, probably in the top 16-18 picks. But it wouldn't be us at RLR. We see significant bust potential with a kid whose family is financially well off, who didn't want to try competing in the nightly wars of the WHL, and who can't even muster any passion in front of an audience that includes the biggest decision makers in the NHL.
sounds like another 1st round big man of ours

puckrushing Dman---by far the rarest type of player in today's NHL

go ahead and name them..(even w/ Sanguinetti who should be a top4 D)

NYR should grab the best puckrushing Dman since they are the best way to break Defensive schemes today which over 24 of the 30 teams employ

and many of them aren't very big. Last puckrusher NYR picked before bobby Sanguinetti in 1st round....Brian Leetch....Time to get 1 more.

NYR are loaded on the wings and could use another top D.

imagine having 6 20 min a night skill /pwr Defenders and that would be much tougher for teams to crack then if NYR just stacked up w/ 2 or 3 good ones like Anaheim has now.

cap hit could easily be 2.5 each or about 15 mill for starting sextet on d.

Thanks for the link, it's certainly interesting. I just can't help but be skeptical - what does the financial well being of a family have to do with hockey talent? Colbourne wasn't willing to "[compete] in the nightly wars of the WHL" but yet is enrolled in a top WCHA school which is arguably as demanding of a league as the WHL. He may have "lacked passion" that night, but Redline admits that this observation occurred at only one event. I think their concerns are certainly something to look in to, but I wouldn't write the kid off just yet.
