Absolutely fantastic move.

This kid is going to be a *STUD*.

Cliche should be next on the bill to get inked.

Ah yes. Very good news indeed. Sauer and the rest of the quartet(Staal, Sanguinetti, and Toots) give us a very nice upside for the future.

Our defense is starting to shape up nice for the future. I'd love to get a guy like Petrecki in the next draft (who is from upstate NY -- Clifton Park, IIRC).

A guy like him or a Doughty/Sauve (2008 draft) would really solidify our defense of the future.

my guess is that they'd rather use the assets that it would take to get petrecki (whose looking like a top 5 pick) to aquire a big foward prospect, seeing as it really is more of a need right now.

and if we're picking in that range then something has probably gone horribly wrong.

Why risk of losing him as a ufa after the season if he was to go to juniors as a overager, at least get him signed so he can start for the Checkers if he dont make the Wolfpack.
I was going to say that Potter, Crabb, and Guenin are longshots to make the NHL. Hunter is a project himself, but he has a lot more upside than any of those three.

does anyone else see some Shea Weber in Micheal Sauer? Both are defensive minded defensemen coming out of the WHL who saw a nice uptick in they're scoring the year after they where drafted. Both where also selected in the second round.

I'm not saying that Sauer will progress as well as Weber, but I see alot of similarites.

I repeat, the 2005 draft looks like a killer - I believe that Staal, Sauer, Cliche and Dupont will be essential pieces of the future core of the Rangers. Add in Pyatt and Russell, plus wild cards like Koverko and Beller, and we will be praising that draft for years to come.

Ditto, and maybe one day I will be purchasing a Sauer jersey myself.

Still waiting for this one though...

Sauer got an assist on the second goal of the game between USA Team White and Team Sweden at the WJC camp.

I don't know how much he's gonna have to prove in order to make the team, but it's nice to see him pick up a point at least

Definetly see us signing Eric Hunter, Dupont, Pyatt, Russell and Cliche. The 2005 draft may have saved the franchise.

I don't know about saving the franchise, since the 2004 draft put the Rangers on the road to recovery. But, the 2005 draft has the potential to fully arm the Rangers for a very good future.

It's things like this that make me bang my head. This franchise COULD have been in even better shape were it not for Jessiman & Falardeau. Even take the latter out of the conversation, and simply not drafting the lone member of a very deep draft not to have taken any steps forward (Jessiman). How much better would the Rangers farm system have looked with virtually anyone else from that 1st round?

I am still waiting to see what happens with Al Montoya, if he ends up being better then Lundqvist that will be unbelievable. If we make a trade that brings in a quality #1 center or #1 center prospect than that draft could push everything over the edge.

The Rangers may not be able to sign Corey Potter,Nate Guenin and Joey Crabb because they are approaching the 50 contract limit.Maybe one or two of them if possible.If you include Marc Staal and Michael Sauer,the Rangers have 48 NHL contracts.Staal and Sauer will most likely be sent back to their junior teams so they won't count but they count right now because they haven't been sent back to junior.Unless the Rangers trade a signed player or two for a draft pick(s)or prospect(s),they do not have room for the college players.Unless they want to sign AHL contracts

I feel Dubinsky will be a number 2 centre, He was the best pack player in the playoffs while just coming over after juniors while making his pro debut, that is impressive. While leading the pack with a +8, the next in +- was former pack Colby Genoway with + 5.With Dubinsky's hard work and gritty style he might even make a number one centre, if he can be like Jeremy Roenick in his prime, ill take that any day, we dont have much players with grit and alot of skill. We do got alot of grit in 3rd and 4th liners like Byers, Kozak, Callahan.

Everyone forgets Baranka because he missed so much of last year with his wrist injury. So it's really a... pentet?

and Lampman. I still think he will be a good dman if he can stay healthy, he needs to get a little strong. If he can be 6'1 205-210 that wont be that bad, right now he is listed as 6'1 193

The reason that this argument never dies is because it was such a far-out pick. It's not like he drafted someone who was seen as a high draft pick and just did not pan out. He took someone whom nearly everyone (from fans to scouts to GMs)would never have picked that high. And how much better could this organization have been with another top-2 line player that was very young and homegrown? THe argument does not die becuae the effects of it are still being felt thoughout the organization.

Listen I spoke to Hugh yesterday and he is really working hard this summer, he took the Rangers comments on Pyatt to heart and he is getting himself in that type of shape. Do not count him out yet. He is busting his *** to make this team at the 3rd line LW spot. So please wait until the guy is 25 before you call him a bust.
