What do these duties actually entail? Were you going to create a draft preview?

Wells Fargo site has it as 7 pm.

It'd be nice if the nhl would more readily make this info available on their site one of these years.

Basically create a thread for each pick. Some relevant quotes. Link to the Rangers Unlimited article. Easy.

Man, crazy how little I know about the draft compared to back in the day!

I think back in 2008 I could have recited a mock draft through 3 rounds. 2010 was the last real draft I thoroughly followed.

The only guys I know from this year's draft are Bennett, Ekblad, Reinhart and Dal Colle.

What I can say is this board truly shines during draft day(s). You can really see the knowledge from a lot of our posters, and it's cool to see us select guys that certain posters have been hyping.

Same...although, honestly, I think the fact that we keep trading first round picks is part of the reason I haven't been paying nearly as much attention in the past, lol.

Exactly the reason I haven't followed the draft the last couple of years. No point if the Rangers won't be involved.

Also because the team has been successful recently, with two ECF and a SCF in the last three years, I'm more interested in winning.

Follow the kids we draft though, to see how they are doing.

Still very curious about the possible trades league-wide tomorrow.

I've run the draft for years on here. Create threads, link reports, stats, give my own thoughts, etc. I don't have time for it these days. Auf is right, I set him up for it.

If he wants to have you do it since the picture you posted is sick, maybe that's the best way to do it.

I don't have time these days so whoever has the best ability should be doing it for sure.

I wish it was that easy. I usually put a ton of work into getting those threads perfect.

Maybe because our next one is 2 years away.

Meh, leave the draft stuff to the draft guys like Bluenote, Joey Bones, and others. We gotta focus on the NHL!

Detroit didn't have a pick from 2001-2004. I'd guess that's the most recent.

I have to say that it is very depressing to have so few picks. Sather needs to stop handing away the later round picks for nothing.

My favorite draft in recent memory was the Cherry draft.

The end result is still depressing.

The Clowe trade is the one that irks me. We dealt our 2013 second, Florida's 2013 third (#61), and this year's fifth for him.

The Mashinter and Falk deals kill me. Especially with the fact that they went out and gave away another asset for Diaz because they didn't want to play Falk

Would much, much, much rather have Ho-Sang than DeAngelo. DeAngelo is kind of a scum bag.

No point in moaning about 6th and 7th round picks. If there is indeed some guy that the Rangers really want after their last selection--Sather can do what he's done before trade a 6th rounder this year for a 6th rounder next year--there will be someone that bites. It happens all the time.

In any case--there will be undrafted guys that the Rangers can sign. They had Dane Fox at their development camp for instance. We didn't sign him the Canucks jumped all over him but there will be players that will be out there--with just as good of a chance--some even better than a lot of those guys drafted in the later rounds.

The real problem is the lack of 1st round picks.

By the way I think there's almost no chance that DeAngelo is available at 59.
