He was sitting right there in the second round. We could have had staal and him.....

I don't know, but...

in the one game in which Staal was allowed to play, I kind of liked the guy. Then he goes back to his juniors team, gets the 'C' and scores a goal and an assist in his first game. These guys are 18 years old - be patient. Just because a guy is going to play in the NHL today, doesn't mean in three years you'd be saying it was the better pick.

I agree. You could make that argument if Latendresse was taken in Jessimen's draft year or Malhotra's. But I think Staal will be just as much a favorite in NY as Lats is in Montreal.

latendresse fell all the way to the second round. crazy to complain about taking staal over him. i like latendresse and def would have taken him in the second round if i were us but to say it was a bad move taking staal instead of him is not a good arguement.

I think he's referring to the fact that NYR could have had Latendresse in the 2nd round, but they decided to deal the pick to MTL who took him. Personally, I like Sauer, but watching Latendresse do so well does give me some doubt...

to me, its almost irrelevant. We have enough 2/3rd liners/D-pairs that will do very nicely for us. We are missing the blue-chip top line guys, and Lat has that potential. In the 2nd round, after grabbing a solid plater like Staal, taking a chance on Lat would have been a great move.

If we dont finish in the bottom 5 this year, we will most likely miss out again on such a player (a Frolov or a Kessel would round out our future very nicely).

How crazy of an idea is it that maybe this deal is past considerations from a past deal with the Habs? I mean it was us who dealt them the pick to take that kid who is on fire for them. Could also be a left over from the Kovalev deal which is starting to not look too hot.

the 2nd round you should gamble on a player like Lats, the upside is to great.

I believe that this is the 2nd time he's done that (Sather that is).

The first time it was Lee Falalalalalalardeau over Jarret Stoll

These are the things that make seriously question Sather's ability to see actual talent.

But OTOH 29 other GM's passed on both kids (Lats and Stoll) at least once in both draft years so it may say something there as well.

Sather goes by what his scouts recommend. Some of the players picked by the Rangers are players Sather has never even heard of. Blame the Rangers scouting dept OR Sather for HIRING the scouting staff that we have now.I bet Slats never even heard of Latendresse or Sauer until the draft itself.

the managments goal for the entire draft was to get defencemen. at some point, somewhere i read that if staal wasnt there, sather was trading out of the 1st to grab sauer. sauer was our guy from the start.

its to easy to say we should have taken said guy when hes doing good. what if sauer becomes a star and lats cant produce in the regular season? time will tell, no point making decisions now.

Exactly. Don't forget Manny Malhotra.
