I'm certainly not complaining, the ability to draft and develop NHL talent has been remarkable for the Rangers post lockout.
Henrik Lundqvist. Vezina trophy winner.

Yes but the OP is specifically referring to the last decade. Hank was drafted before that.

Simply put, we would of done better by throwing darts at a board and picking out names that way.

Oh......and the 2003 draft is clearly better than the 80' draft, no comparison there

A million things wouldve been different had we chosen another player.

Had we drafted Getzlaf, maybe we wouldnt sign Gomez, meaning no McDonagh, and no Richards. It likely means prospects of lesser value than MDZ and Kreider.

Also, everyone assumes we wouldve picked Parise or Getzlaf, but how do you know it wouldnt have been Brian Boyle? There were far more teams choosing guys like Boyle than guys like Getzlaf. Why assume that every draft we are the ones to pick the best player?

Sanguinetti. Been his nickname since we drafted him.

One thing is for sure. We need to stop picking guys who were Rangers fans growing up. That hasn't worked out too well.

You forgot Larsson and Matteau for the Devils. Both have played in the NHL and have bright futures...Matteau specifically has really looked like he belongs his first two games.

Also Vasyunov (who perished in the plane crash) as well as guys like Mark Fraser and Vladimir Zharkov...borderline NHL guys but still if you include Weise and Horak you have to include Zharkov and Fraser.

The Devils have certainly not forgotten how to draft. They have incredible defensive depth in that org. Jon Merrill and Adam Larsson will be absolute rocks on that D for years to come. Als guys like Urbom, Eric Gelinas, Severson.

Cherepanov would have been that superstar forward you lot are clamoring for. His death was a tragic loss of life, withal.
