Really, really not a fan picking a goaltender with our earliest pick.

Gonna give him a chance though.

What does "earliest pick" have to do with anything? #59 is practically in the 3rd round already...there are no sure things at that point. Heck, if the selection actually makes your NHL team and can contribute in a bottom 6 role you've done well.

Based on the opinions here I think the Rangers should wait till Hank is in adult diapers and uses a walker and oxygen before picking another goalie, huge mistake.

Are you ****ing kidding me??! We drafted TWO goalies with TWO of our three highest picks when goalies were flying off the board in the picks ahead of us and we have TWO legitimate starting NHL goalies???

Are you ****ing kidding me? What a ****ing joke.

Rangers have the best goalie in the game signed long-term. Picking a goalie while having so few picks, reminds me of when they ****ed up and took Montoya.

Yes, because in 2004 everyone knew Henrik Lundqvist would be Henrik Lundqvist

Maybe this would've made more sense in two years.

That said, I hope he works out. Don't know enough about him, hoping for another Lundqvist-like draft steal.

Gotta trust Gordie, he is an amazing draft mind.
Drafting a goalie is unexciting, but get mat be four years from the NHL, then maybe a backup for two and next thing You know Hank's contract is done and he's ready. One way of looking at it.

You actually expect to get anything of value after the 50th pick, especially in this draft? Halvorson is big and raw and has a chance to turn into something. Do you understand the chances that you get an every day NHLer passed the 1st round? Id be ecstatic if ONE of these picks turns into an NHLer. You must really love our ECHL affiliate because thats where these guys will most likely end up...

Yes, because Montoya went insanely high. I remember the announcers at that draft laughing at the pick. Not often you hear them goofing on your first rounder.

yeah a pick made with the second to last pick of round two should remind you of a pick made at #6 overall

If Hank for Malkin is not happening -- and it isn't --- then at best Talbot maybe gives us a year or 2, demanding and extra dozen or so games each year to bulk his resume.

So we hope this guy can be ready in 3 ish years to be Hanks backup, and we trade Talbot as soon as there is enough overpayment on the table, not before.

Other things being =, I would have preferred another pick, but other things not = if there is truly huge upside, then this could be worth it.

I love this draft so far, because all of the regular Negative Nancies are out in full force. I've seen most of the regular whiners, still a few more though...

In all honesty, I feel pretty happy with what we did.

At #59? No.

#118 is OK.

Both is beyond stupid.

Missiaen's a bust. Stajcer's a bust. Basically we have Lundqvist and Talbot and Shapski's the only one developing. It was an organizational need.

Anyway there's **** that happens. If Henrik gets hurt--god forbid--we'll be scrambling around for anything. Talbot's a potential UFA after next year. Got to have goalies in the pipeline--doesn't matter how good your No. 1 is.

Two of our biggest organizational needs coming into today--goaltending depth and puckmoving defensemen--have been addressed, to varying degrees.

You can't completely restock a system in one draft, particularly without a first. They focused on a couple areas and grabbed some interesting players. Fine by me.

Some of the "Chicken Littles" on this board who think the sky is falling because of the Rangers draft strategy today completely embarrass me. Calm yourselves... You aren't scouts and you aren't general managers. Relax, enjoy the draft and complain about these selections 5 years from now if they don't pan out.

Yeah, it's actually a nice mix. Considering we weren't getting a surefire 1st liner in thie draft I'm happy with the selections and moving down a couple times to add picks.

Agree. I ****ing hated the Kreider pick when we took him. Since then? I never bash any of my team's drafts anymore. I don't have the necessary knowledge too. I trust the people who get paid to do this to do it well. Even if their track record isn't spectacular. ESPECIALLY with goalies

Yes, the absurdity of some of these complaints is very entertaining.

I liked the stockpiling mentality of this draft. Picked up a lot of later picks, stocked up on some types we need. Could use a draft of quantity with our pick situation.

Our third rounder also seems like a potential steal.

It's still our earliest pick, with players on board that we really could've used.
