What an ugly list.

Besides Nash, each one either a complete bust or well past their primes.

Crap. Lawton. I should have had that one.

Never would have gotten Wickenheiser. My knowledge of #1 picks extends only to Hawerchuck. Who I loved.

Still have no idea why I thought Murphy played for the Rangers.

Wait, found it.

I really thought he played at least one game. Amazing he can have such an impact without ever playing.

What's interesting is not one of those players were Ranger draft picks. And this organization has had long stretches of lack of success.

Boy do I feel sheepish.

Lolz @ that draft though. 11 players selected in a 12 team league?

I thought Hamrlik looked just fine for a 38 year old that hadn't played in a month. You could see he wasn't in game shape, but you could also see him use his experience and knowledge of the game to anticipate plays and defuse dangerous situations.

Between him and Eminger, I'd be feeling a lot better about our D - if it wasn't for Staalsy's injury. As it is, I don't think the unit is the strength that it would be if he were healthy, but by the same token, I no longer think the bottom pair is the weakness it was with Gilroy and Bickel.

Infinitely better than Bickel. If Staal can come back and return to form, we're in good shape.

His skating is awful. But he was so good with his stick and body position that it didn't matter tonight. That bodes well for the future.

The word that comes to mind is "wily"

Yea I thought he looked pretty good, especially given te fact that he was shaking off some rust stepping in with a new team in a fast paced high tempo game.

Hopefully he keeps it up.

Looked painfully slow but otherwise solid. I'm guessing Torts will keep him out and let him get back into game shape.

he's slow, but he is fine short distances because of the size. looked adequate for a 6d. hope he ends up as our #6 when staal returns. have a feeling he's going to be more reliable than gilroy or eminger and obviously better than stuart bickel. smart positioning. smart player.

Yeah, and the immidate upside with Hamrlik is huge insurance if McD would go down in the future. Like what do we do if two of Staal, Girardi and McD are injured at the same time? I mean, we can't calculate on a bunch of injuries at one position at the same time, but these guys are in the shooting lane every night and all have had some troubles lately.

Hamrlik will have good and bad nights as a 6th D. He would have good and bad nights as a top 4 D too, you can't play Stu Bickel as a top 4 D and Gilroy probably only would have avg and bad nights as a top 4 D.

I gotta say though, I think Emminger has been fine lately.

Slow and out of shape but smooth and position ally sound . His knowledge and economy of movement is a plus . He's going to have to get in game shape in next few weeks. Would like Gilly paired with him to add mobility as Eminger always looks like he's on roller skates but de adds a physical dimension Gilly doesn't have

Emminger was standing still last night on the grabner and was looking really bad. He shold have taken a penalty there imo and take the guy down. This was just embarrassing. So I do not agree he is a good fill in I personally rather see Gilroy.
