    Interesting theory. I hadn’t thought of that. Thanks!

    True words right here. Worth it to mention that although the wasn’t our pick, Fox was a 4th rounder so we got that going for us

    I'm aware.

    the point is you may really like him while he's playing for Tampa, but you would not like him as much once he gets here, especially on that contract.

    My second favorite player the Rangers drafted, which I am pretty sure I said at the time. Glad he is doing well.

    Yeah, I mentioned it on one of these threads, he's quite skilled himself and is already 6+ feet at age 16. If Brett were that size, with his skating and skill, he would have been a first round pick.

    Love love love this kid Berard. I think both of our 5th round picks were absolute steals.

    Correct.

    Vierling is an incredibly smart player who plays with urgency and energy and is very responsible in all three zones. The question was whether the offense would be there. The trade to Barrie showed scouts an element that hadn’t quite been a factor previously. Now the question is whether he can sustain it. If he can, you’re arguably looking at a Dom Moore type.

    With Berard the questions were size, his ability to translate and frankly, being in a spotlight position where he could shine. So in that sense he was very much in similar position to Ryan Callahan as a teenager - with the hope that he’s a guy who rises because he just refuses to take no for an answer.

    Vierling is probably more of the IQ player, whereas Berard has more natural gifts to work with and is a more exciting.

    But I’d perfectly happy to have the two of them forever linked in a Dubinsky-Callahan type manner.

    I freely admit that I loved the Rangers 2020 draft.

    Tarnstrom wouldn’t have been my pick in the third, and I still have nothing on Hugo to sink my teeth into, but I honestly felt that from top to bottom it was the most promising overall draft day I’d seen for the Rangers.

    I pegged Berard and Vierling as third rounders, so landing them in the fifth was huge. Rangers also had both guys much higher than they were able to land them. I really wish I wrote this shit down sometimes - I want to say in the 70s.

    I feel like they’ve been getting progressively better since 2017.

    If they had taken someone reasonable instead of f***ing Lindbum a few years ago I'd be super bullish about everything.

    (Somewhat joking. He was a terrible pick at the time and looks worse now.)

    The Athletic did a write up reviewing the world juniors. Stars and Flops. 15 scouts voted.

    MVP was Zegras but they also included some pleasant surprises and Berard was the first player mentioned.

    I like what I saw from Berard. We need some lunch pail players in our lineup, and we all know how much MSG loves grinders.

    Honestly, if the kid can become Gallagher 2.0, it would be a complete home run.

    That's who he tries to emulate.

    heck I would even take Gallagher lite.
    Then again I think Gallagher is a terrific player. Kind of guy that would fit on any team for so many reasons

    A head scratcher from the moment the pick was announced. I don’t think Bode Wilde was ever a consideration for them, not a player type they target, but how the hell was Drury not the pick there? Makes no sense.

    Finding guys like Berard late helps soften the blow of picks like Lindbom but it’s really hard to avoid the what if scenarios when thinking about it.
