I'm hoping the Rangers draft either Gillies , Sutter, or Esposito. All centers, all three solid NHL prospects, playing a position which this team is weak in at all levels!

I'm hoping there is a way we could get Logan Cotoure I heard someone referring to him as "Yzerman light" kinda.

anyone see the possibility of focusing on trading down for quantity, since this is supposedly a deep, but not top-heavy draft..

Problem is, those posts will be put in chronological order and BigE's post won't be the first in the thread, yours will.

I could see it. But who knows with Rockström on board, its completly impossible to know how he will like or not. Thats the sad part with the draft for us, other teams can speculate on who their teams will draft, thats just impossible for us.

adding the Mock Draft from other thread.

There is a Mock Draft on the eponymous board that involves a fair bit of people and the Rangers are up next; Draft Guru is standing in for Satheroney. I was wondering (i guess before he picks) who you guys would select. Then afterwards i am wondering if there were any thoughts on the draft so far, his selection etc.


1.) Philadelphia Flyers – Patrick Kane
2.) Los Angeles Kings – Kyle Turris
3). Edmonton (From Columbus) - Alexei Cherepanov
4). Chicago Blackhawks - Logan Couture
5.) Phoenix Coyotes - Jakub Voracek
6.) Washington Capitals - Karl Alzner
7). Florida Panthers - Keaton Ellerby
8.) St. Louis Blues - James Van Riemsdyk
9.) Boston Bruins - Bill Sweatt
10.) Colorado Avalanche - Colton Gilles
11.) Columbus (From Edmonton) - Nick Petrecki
12.) New York Rangers -

here is the link to the thread -> http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=352362

Update:

Draft Guru had this to say:

Quote:
The New York Rangers are ecstatic to select C Sam Gagner from the London Knights (OHL) with the 12th overall selection in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

GP: 49
G: 34
A: 79
P: 113
PIM: 28

thoughts?

I added a link to the thread as well, Dank. We're all set.

As for who I'd take: it all depends. I believe this is a year that we might want to consider using an extra pick or prospect to move up in the draft and really go for that elite-level player that we're missing in the system.

Espo is an intriguing talent if he's around, but his drop off this year is concerning. It seems to me the questions about his work ethic and motivation are not a good fit with the direction this organization is moving in.

Hopefully, by the end of this thread everyone on this board will have an excellent idea of who they'd want in any situation (ie., draft scenario).

haha, i quasi-merged the threads.. oh well..

it seems as though there are no super, elite locks this year.. the top two/three seem to be almost sure things, but good luck prying away those picks from the bottom teams.. it seems like there are a lot of solid NHLer's from the first 2-3 rounds, so may as well get more picks?

to quote Edge,

Whats our draft pick situation for 2007?

To quote you, 'Gotta' ?

As always, we should get the best player available, remember this kid won't
be ready for a few years.

Wonder how Dave Gagner would feel about the Rangers taking his son in the first round?Dave was a former Rangers first round pick in 1983 and wasn't given a chance with the Rangers

I see a lot of interesting picks in this draft, but I also see a lot of kids that don't jump out at me either.

A lot of the kids seem like they could be solid NHL'ers but I'm not sure see I guys whom I'd consider sure-fire cornerstone players.

Alot of these kids are going to need some serious development time.

while I'm usually in favor of taking the safer pick, the teptation to gamble on a guy like esposito is pretty strong this year, considering the lack of high end talent in the organization. I know the reservation that have been aired about him, and I'm not saying "Take Him! Take Him!" But he's a player I'd want to kick the tires pretty hard on. LA seems to have made a living drafting players that fall on everyone else's draft board, perhaps we could take a page out of they're book. it would be great to end up with another Kopitar, or even an Alexander Radulov.

There is a chance I may actually be at the draft, so I am excited.

How come Espo has fallen so much? I honestly hope he keeps falling because then we have an outside shot to get him, but I don't know why his stock is down.

people keep saying he is a "me" player and it pisses people off when he doesn't pass
