This is an excellent pick.

He was projected to go round 1 at one point. Had some injuries and a suspension. I believe his numbers will rebound next season.

He is like a much faster Jeff Carter. Great shot and stickhandling, can pass as well. I think he can turn into a very good 2nd line forward in the 50-60 point range. His speed will help us a lot as well.

You'd have thought getting man handled by Boston and the passive way we play throuhhout the line up would hsve had us going with the more physical guys.

How much were his numbers impacted by Grigorenko? Don't know if they play on the same line.

He looks like he's got the physical attributes to play in the NHL from his highlights.

All they need is one of the three picks to pan out and it'll be a successful 3rd round.

We need some asskickers who can also play. Can't remember the roster EVER as soft as it is now.

The very personable Anthony Duclair told me he is most often compared with Evander Kane...said speed is key to his game

So they took 3 high risk/reward guys in the third round. You hope that 1 pans out and then it's a win.

Well it's not hard to figure out the Rangers want speed on the wings.

And at center and defense. Skating ability is definitely something they place a high value on.

Right. Atleast they are aiming to have an identity in 4-5 years.

Maybe they are looking at our inability to score for the last 9 years.

If we can't compete at least we will be fast.

and I get that.

and I hope that one of these guys pans out.

But we still have not addressed the lack of compete that this team has.

Fast and somewhat talented, but still soft as baby crap.

I hope ONE proves me wrong.

Because "if we can't compete at least we will beat people up" is a better philosophy.

I wasn't complaining about the philosophy, just pointing it out. Clark loves speed.

How were you expecting them to address that by drafting 18 year olds?

You would have to think they know this, hence the Clowe acquisition. I'm with you here but picking as late as they were today, it's really unlikely that your gonna get an ass kicker that can play. Better to go for some high end talent that might pan out.

I hate hearing that a prospect was once seen as a first rounder. It means that he slipped once he had the light shined on him.

People who were seen as first rounders who slipped (e.g., McColgan, Grachev) are much, much less likely to succeed than guys who came out of nowhere to be drafted in a "too high" position with everyone screaming Who?! Why?! (e.g., Stepan, Chara).

true they get hyped the day of the draft cause people know the names but often you find out later there was a reason they dropped...unless of course the guy was simply hurt during his draft year

Duclair is a rocket ship. I don't think there's a better skater in this entire draft, and that's saying something considering the amount of quality skaters in every round.
