Last year,the Rangers swapped their 6th in this draft for a 6th in 2011. The Rangers traded their pick in 11 to PHX for Eriksson. Todays trade.
I don't get it either. Especially a decision to trade a 3rd round pick for a future 3rd? I think it's safe to assume that Gordie & Co. know more about the available prospects than the average HF draft follower.
No, we traded a kid that a commentator compared to Brad Marchand for a 3rd.
NO! WE ACTUALLY TRADED A CLEAR IMPACT PLAYER FOR A THIRD. THE TEAM DOESN'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING WHARBLBARBLDFIHDS9FU3841208FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!

The ultimate sleeper would be Connor Hellebuyck, a massive (6-4, 185) netminder who plays in the unlikely destination of Odessa, Texas. He's a kid that we kept noticing every time we went to North American Hockey League tournaments to check out Anthony Stolarz. The 1993 birthdate is a classic case of a late bloomer who is raw as hell, but had the size and physical tools (quick feet, sharp glove) necessary to become a good prospect.
