Henrik was a late round pick of course, and often time a goon or a fringe player can just be signed as an undrafted free agent that late in the draft.
I think it's very questionable to agree with Jess Rubenstein about anything hockey related. As for everything prior to that pick was a disaster in 2004 - Montoya, Korpikoski (which ended up costing the Rangers a 1st AND a 2nd), Olver, Byers and Graham...not exactly the stuff I'd hang my hat on as a scouting staff.

2004 1st: 0/2
2004 2nd: 1/4

2005 1st: 1/1
2005 2nd: 1/2

2006 1st: 0/1
2006 2nd: 1/1

2007 2nd: 0/1

2008 1st: 1/1
2008 2nd: 1/1

1st rounders: 2/6
2nd rounders: 4/9

So 33% success vs 44% success on such a small sample size is meaningless. I mean, if Werek misses and Kreider makes it, our 1st round success is better than our 2nd...

Honestly, if you draft one NHL player a draft, then you are doing well. Recently we have been doing very well..

Maybe we should do the move down for a 2nd rounder and keep moving down.

Kinda makes you wonder where this organization would be if they would have been doing this all along.

Well for one, we would've had Zach Parise .

Different eras. Maloney, Renney, and Rockstrom had a lot of impact the beginning of last decade and Maloney is a good GM but not a good drafter.

Clarke, Gorton, Graves, Vladimir Luschentsko, etc. already have a much better track record in the last 4-5 drafts.
