A big, physical defenseman in Dylan McIlrath over a puck-mover like Cam Fowler for the Rangers. The guy Gordie Clark wanted all along.

It will be interesting to hear the Rangers' brass explain this pick. What's the reasoning?

Just wonderful.

And we still have no top end talent in the system.

**** you, Clark.
If he becomes the next Hatcher, we have hit a 15 run grand slam.

i'm trying to reflect on this. the rangers are so vanilla at the minute - at least we're going to get uglier. we have such a bunch of p*****s around hank's net, at least this guy can get dirty

Agh!!! Can't get over it.

First, I can't believe we went with a defenseman with how many we have in the system (and young ones already on the big team) and how much we're lacking top flight offensive talent.

Second, I can't EFFING BELIEVE that IF we were gonna go with a D-man we would PASS on the #3/4 guys in the draft; guys who will be playing in the NHL in a year at most, for a ****ing enforcer. This guy will be a bottom pairing guy, and may be physical and solid but has NO upside and is NOT what you take with the #10 overall pick.

If the Rangers don't make some kind of phenomenal move(s) this off-season I am going to have a very low interest level come October. Just mind numbing.

I'm just stunned. No other word. (Facepalm)
Ditto--particularly with what Clark said about Fowler.

How the hell do these guys have jobs.. Seriously..

A blind, deaf, semi-******** donkey could have made a 'smarter' selection at pick 10..

Raises hand.

Terrible skater and a bone-head (in terms of on-ice decision making) to boot. Bottom pairing upside.

Great pick in 1997.

Read the last 10 pages of the thread.
