Yep BPA, the best way to draft. If Sangs doesn't pan out then we have Del Zotto and vice versa. It's insurance. And if they both pan out, awesome, extra assets.
He's the kid I wanted...I think he's the BPA, and I'm not surprised the Rangers took a D-man from the OHL. The kid was being talked about at the start of the year on a level with the big 4...frankly, I think he's a steal at #20.
I think Del Zotta has more of a chance to be an impact player at least, and I if things work out, the Rangers could have a very dynamic defense in 3-4 years. Del Zotta and Sanguinetti providing a strong one-two punch, Staal being the top guy logging huge minutes and contributing all over, guys like Tyutin, Girardi, and Sauer providing solid physical defense with puck moving skills.
This guy is a cowboy on defense. Thinks offense before defense. But in our system that's not so bad considering he'll probably be paired with a very steady guy on d like Staal, Sauer, Tyutin or Girardi. So in a way we need someone who is a DIVA like that. We need a guy that can put up points. And at the very least you know Schonfeld will not let him be promoted from Hartford when he gets there until he learns not to be a liability on defense. Not that he is. I like this. With him and Sanguinetti if he too pans out were gonna have one hell of a power play.
