The What If Draft Thread..

If instead of taking Al Montoya and Lauri Korpikoski, We took Alexander Radulov and Mike Green, would be a favorite for winning the east?

P.S. I knew we have Hein sight(sp) but It's that time of year so I figure I would bring this out to show the importance of Drafting.

Also,
in 2003, Patrick O'Sullivan instead of Ivan Baranka (D) and Ryan Getzlaf instead of Hugh Jessiman.

1.Invent time machine
2.???
3. Tell Ranger's scouts what I know
4.Profit

What Major players do you think the rangers have passed on in the past 8 years(up to the 200 draft class) that would make us be a powerhouse in the east?

Instead of Michael Stewart with the 13 in 1990, Rangers could have drafted

Keith Tkachuk at 19
Martin Brodeur at 20
Peter Bondra at 136

Of course 1999 always irks me.

Rangers had the 4th pick overall. They picked Pavel Brendl. They also had the 9th pick which they drafted Lundmark

They passed up Martin Havlat, Henrik Zetterberg

What if instead of drafting Fedor Tyutin, the Rangers drafted Tomas Slovak? Good luck turning what's-his-name into Nikolai Zherdev

What if instead of drafting Henrik Lundqvist in the 7th round, we went for Tim Eriksson?

Hell, what if Henrik Lundqvist decided he wanted to play in a band more instead of hockey?

can't have it both ways

what if the rangers drafted Ryan Getzlaf instead of Hugh, and Jessiman became a star player while Getzlaf became a bust. What if the Rangers won the Crosby lottery. what if Ovechkin and Malkin fell far enough to the rangers due to there russian contracts. what if Jagr decided to stay in russia. what if we drafted Bourret instead of Staal. what if we drafted Parise and the Devils drafted Huge Speciman. What if we traded Lundmark+ to the flames for Iginla. what if we signed Joe Sakic.

Both ways?

Ha as if the Rangers are not historically a TERRIBLE drafting team.

The Rangers were LUCKY to find Henke. No one saw him coming in an Elite player.


In 98 they had the 7 pick and took Manny Malhotra over Datsyuk, Gomez, Cheechoo, Tanguay, Gagne, Brad Richards, Eric Cole, Robyn Regehr

what if we draft Nik Lidstrom in 89' instead of Rob Zamuner, Jason Prosofsky, and Steve Rice

What if San Jose took Scott Niedermayer instead of Pat Faloon

What if Winnipeg took Peter Forsberg instead of Aaron Ward(uh oh Jed2stepopus is gonna yell at me saying Aaron ward lived up to his potential)

What if we took Straka, Peca, Brylin, Maltby, Rivet, Aucoin, Yelle or Gonchar instead of Peter Ferraro, and Chris Ferraro

What if the 93' draft wasnt so crappy, save Pronger, Koivu, Sundstrom, Bertuzzi, Deadmarsh, and Kariya

you do know that Malhotra was one of the top rated prospects coming into the draft, and no one knew who Datsyuk was and Gomez was boarderline 1st-2nd round pick.

Everyone passed on Zetterberg. I think he is trying to do a "what if" of top rated talent going into the draft that they passed on for people who didn't pan out.

Yeah, Zetterberg is by far the best player out of that terrible draft.

Every single team in the league can look back on "what ifs" and assemble a cup contending roster if they were able to make the perfect choices every step of the way.

In all fairness...every team passed on Zetterberg 6-7 times, that's not as valid as someone taken in the 1st or 2nd round

If someone picked Zetterberg in the top five then they would be decapitated by their fans; Why draft an undersized Swede no one has ever heard of.

I understand that Z was a hidden gem. Similar to Henke.

What irks me about 99 is the Rangers had TWO top 10 picks and drafted poorly.
