I don't see us taking a goalie in the first round. Actually I don't think any goalies are even rated as 1st rounders this year.

i say we don't trade him until we have a safety net in place or next year.
Yeah...what he said

Seriously, thanks for watching my flank.....dank Had a long drive ahead of me this afternoon, and did not have time to order my thoughts or post properly. You summed it up nicely.

i think back to our situation a few years ago with blackburn, what happened to him, how freaky that was, and how one day he was just...gone. Never want to see us get caught short like that again.

I don't know if Montoya gets us the 3rd overall pick straight up. I think something like Montoya + a 2nd for Leneveu + 3rd overall is more of a possibility. I would love for this team to move up as the one thing we severely lack is a bonafide top line forward prospect. I'm not a fan of moving Montoya, but he's probably our most valuable chip at the moment that we can afford to move. You have to give up something to get something. Phoenix could use a young stud, and it's no secret how much Maloney loves Montoya.

I love JVR, and I think he would be the guy the Rangers would take at 3 assuming he's there. I have Kane, JVR and Turris as my top 3. I'm not too high on Voracek. He'll probably go in the top 6 but I would pass on him depending on who's left. I also really like Gagner and see him going 7th or 8th. I would not oppose us moving up from 17 into the top 10 to grab Gagner if he's on the board.

There's a chance Esposito may still be there at 17 and if he is I would definitely take the gamble. His stock has dropped a lot this year (he was the #1 pick coming before the season) and there's whispers that he may be a candidate for a Schremp-like free-fall.

after doing a bit of research, reading up on these players, and watch what little video i could find out there. id have to agree w/ draft guru in that i would definitely trade up to grab JVR, hes the kind of player the rangers have been consistently drafting these past few years. and the fact that hes already a huge Ranger fan will only feed that thought process. honestly, i think id take him with the #1 pick if the rangers had the #1.

as far as 17, Espo would be my target as well.

Trading Montoya for a pick seems silly to me. Trading one of our only elite-level prospects for someone that you hope can become such, seems short-sighted. If Montoya is to be traded, and there should be no hurry to do that, IMO, it should be in the package for an already established young stud.

I agree with TB wholeheartedly on moving up in the first round this year using Montoya as trade bait. Not a smart move.

A little off topic maybe--it concerns next years draft but apparently Los Angeles was unable to reach an agreement with Jan Marek and now we owe them a 2008 3rd rounder.

He's his younger brother. I'm interested in him as well and I wouldn't mind snagging him in the 2nd round.

Hossa, Federov can be added unfortunately.

I'd rather wait with Montoya. I'll echo some others and say that it is much more prudent to move him in a package for an established forwards. Why gamble for an unproven asset with a guy that is proven in the AHL. I know the A isn't the NHL but we have already rolled the dice with our Montoya pick, I'd rather not roll the dice again.

Back at the Blueshirt Bulletin site--we see that for now the Rangers have retained rights to Eric Hunter. He has an offer he can accept or not and a new deadline to do it in--something to do with him being an overage.

Agreed. I'm actually pretty surprised the Rangers even offered him a contract and even MORE surprised that Hunter is considering whether he could get more somewhere else.

Don't know how it true or how his game will eventually project--but I've heard he plays an antagonizing Averyish type of game--and that may be why they made an offer. Hunter I think held out for more with Chicago who originally drafted him--and that's why he went back in the draft. If he doesn't sign with us I don't know what his options will be--I don't think there are going to be too many others busting down his door though. He might be better off taking what he can get for now--and yes he might be Charlotte bound.

i was just looking through some things on JvR and i was JUST about to ask the same/similar Q..

maybe as a show of hands, how comfortable would you all be with moving Montoya (+ 2nd or even our 1st) for the #3 (maybe add Leneveu) (on draft day) if it were to be JvR left on the board?

Not at all. JvR is a project, and we don't need another jessiman blowing up in our faces. Like many have said before, this isnt a very deep draft. I would hold monty and pray that Esposito falls far enough that we could make an offer for him. I know he has alot of doubters, but the kids got alot of skills. And im not mistaking him for Brendl the 2nd, this kid is going to be atleast 2nd line material.

I'm suprised that I haven't seen this sentiment echo'ed more often on these boards. Last year I was a proponent for trading Montoya for the Pick that could possibly get Staal. However, there where a large number of posters who disagreed with me and cited the risk involved in an, at the time, unknown in Staal. Now, in a draft year with a "worse" top end, I seldom see this opinion expressed by anyone. Is this because Montoya's stock has dropped in our eyes or is it for other reasons?

possibly just impatience and shortsightedness..

having said that, i will readily admit that i am one of those people that may be suffering from both.

am i the only person who is not worried (or very excited) to possibly select another high quality d-man as the BPA in the draft and have a solid stable of guys to be able to trade/play in the future?

You're not alone, I feel the same way. I really think we should go BPA at 17, and I think there's a good chance that player will be a Defenseman.
