Enjoyed hearing Leslie's insights.
Particularly her thoughts on McDonagh, Bobby Sangs & Grachev.

She definitely is high on Nino & makes a good case for him in the draft. Sadly, I don't think he'll be there @10.

Great show as always Mr. Mouth!

As Mandar said at the end of the show, what can the Rangers really trade to move up and get Nino? I don't think it's worth it, too many bad memories of the Brendl/Lundmark draft disaster and they'll have to give up waay too much (1st rounder next year and probably some combo of Grachev/Stepan/McD as well as a roster player...Sangs ain't gonna get it done as a centerpiece).

Very interesting was Leslie's take on Skinner.

There will be plenty of good players available at 10 from maybe Johansen to Burmistrov to Tarasenko to Etem to Forbort.

I'm curious on her take on Brock Beukeboom and if Messier might use his sway to get him picked.

Seems a lot of people really like either Johanson or Niederitter, is it really that likely that BOTH will be gone at 10?

When is the draft anyways

There is a good chance they could both be gone, hopefully one of the slips a bit and we grab them, you never know whats going to happen at the draft.

Draft is June 25th and 26th.

Beukeboom will definitely be available in the second round, and maybe in the third. He is a good late second/early third rounder. If the Rangers can pick up a third round pick between now and the draft, he is a good option.

We did not get to talk about it, but in the second round, I really might take a chance on Kabanov (I think that he may still be available). Otherwise, I might look at Tinordi or Galiev.

This should be an exciting draft. Everything is very up in the air. Including the top five.

I thought the player the Rangers were targeting at 10 was Burmistrov?

Burmistrov is not a player the rangers should take at 10. He looks like a 2nd line center, no better ceiling than Anisimov, from what I hear.

Johansen is head and shoulders better. Kabanov and Kuznetsov from the Russian dept. are both more skilled players.

Short story, he is a "safe" pick. Our team has plenty of "safe" players.

We could trade down to 15 and probably still get him.

I'd be surprised if Galiev dropped into the 2nd round. He's the most "North Americanized" out of all the top Russian born players and has never expressed any sort of interest in playing back in Russia.

I do agree regarding Kabanov though. It'd be very difficult to pass up that kind of talent at #40.

Have you actually seen him play, or are you just going by what you've heard?

I'd love to know who told you his ceiling is no higher than Anisimov's.

I've watched him play, but the report on him has never been indicative of a first line center, which this team needs. I dont consider myself an adequate judge of potential when watching any league other than the NCAA, so I leave the projections for OHL and WHL players to people who have some idea what they are talking about.

I hear, Burmistrov is a guy that should go from 14-18, and he is a 2nd line center, puck distributing projection. I think with Stepan and Anisimov this makes him superfluous, and especially undersireable. I'd rather have Skinner than him.

i heard it earlier today, so its not fresh in my mind, but basically..

Leslie thinks the Rangers should take Nino if hes there, she thinks the rangers need a sure thing, and Nino is the guy they should take who may be there.

she thinks they will try to trade up, maybe to grab him.

she thinks Connolly is a good player, and basically compared him to nino saying she was unsure who she would take if both were there at 10 (personally, if Connolly is there, thats a pick i make any day of the week).

She thinks Kabanov definitely falls out of the first

She thinks that Sanguinetti may be traded, and if he isnt, he is no sure thing to make the team.

She thinks that McDonagh is a good 2nd pairing defenseman (i totally agree)

She really likes Derek Stepan, and Weise.

She thinks Grachev shoulda stayed in Brampton, and hinted at some serious questions about the Rangers coaching staff in Hartford (at least thats what I inferred from her comments)

She says the Rangers are trying to make Grachev go and be a grinder and a hitter when he should be focusing on being a scorer. She says he is very very talented and that people shouldnt read too much into his performance this year, said hes still very young, and very immature (physically).

She said she really like Brian Burke (Im not sure I agree there....especially after what he gave up to get Kessel)


All in all it was a pretty good interview. Leslie obviously knows her stuff, but I still think I would take Connolly, Burmistrov or Johansen over Nino...that's just me.

She has a different take on the draft compared to posters here, that's for sure.

I'd be interested in hearing Squishy's take on the Grachev comments. Did it really look like they were trying to coach him into being a type of physical player that he's not, etc

Head and shoulders better? No, there is no way in hell
