This is a draft where BPA and need meet for the Rangers.
I agree. Dobson or Bouchard would be a good addition to the pool. I'm still hoping we grab Bokk and Kravtsov late in the first
I want a sniper. Not just one but quite a few.
If we are at 8, and Wahlstrom does not fall to 8 (as I said he will)...I believe it'll be another forward (Kotkaniemi, Lundestrom) - and not a DMan.
Good thing we'll have a seat seven spots up at #1.
Christ. Is it April 28th yet?
If they're the BPA then should be quick to the NHL.
that is not necessarily true.
For us to get either of those guys we're going to have to move up. Cost permitting I'm for that by the way but it might mean packaging a 1st and a 2nd or both late 1st's to move into the 12-15 range. I don't think either of these guys will be around by 20. I have both in my top 16. The other thing is I'd like us to use an early pick on a defenseman. If we take a forward at 8--I'd be much more inclined to take a d-man with our next pick.
I want ALL the snipers in the first round. Get it done Slats.
If they're picking in a position where Svechnikov and Zadina have already gone, I'm almost certain they will take a D
There are so many variables to be certain of anything. What if Wahsltrom or Tkachuk are on the board at 8?
I'd take tkachuk then trade a bunch of picks to Get the next pick and take wahlstrom.
I actually think Bouchard is gone by 5/6. I think Hughes and Wahlstrom fall.
I hope you're right.
I see Hughes falling I do.
I think if you can get Edmonton’s pick somehow you can come away with one of Bouchard or Dobson and probably wahlstrom.
This draft has 9 great picks and then Farabee who is a borderline great pick so if we're at 8 or 9--I'm absolutely fine with us getting one of Bouchard, Dobson or Hughes and one of them should be available. If not someone like Tkachuk, Boqvist or Wahlstrom will be. So it all works as far as I'm concerned. Then Wilde, Smith, Kotkaniemi and Bokk are borderline great picks too. Where the Rangers will be in the draft order for their first 1st rounder it's almost impossible for them to **** it up.
Hughes will fall to us.
We start spreading rumors that svech wants to go back to Russia rather than stay in juniors or go to AHL.
Svechnikov falls and we pick him up
In all reality give me Bouchard and sandin later in the 1st round and keep building that d core
I think you are overestimating our influence
It would seem we are in a good spot. If we don't win a lottery hopefully we don't fall...but if someone leapfrogs us it won't be terrible if we end up at 9. While we could fall further, that would be unlikely...and if we end up at 10 we could draft Farabee as a "consolation prize". Heck, for all we know the Rangers like him enough to select him at 8 or 9, right?
Why do you think that? Size concerns? He seems like a great pick at 8 if he managed to fall.
Hughes now sits with five goals and 29 points in 36 freshman games and is being considered by many as the second best defensive prospect in this upcoming draft. For comparison sake, the 5'10 rearguard outproduced fellow 2018 draft pick and forward, Brady Tkachuk and has more points than 2017 fourth overall pick, Cale Makar as a first year NCAA player. Hughes blends exqusite edgework with blistering acceleration and a mind for creating offense. He's a one man breakout machine and could challenge Filip Zadina for third overall when names are being called in Dallas this June. Cam Robinson
He’s tiny. I think it’ll hurt him. Not a great wjc either. Not saying he should just think he will be the guy that drops
Just happy the top 10 is defense heavy. I hope the bpa with our 1st round picks end up being defensivemen. I would love to stockpile on that end. Then go heavy on offense rest of the draft and over the years. I would love to do what Nashville has, that d core is filthy
We can easily land a great D at 8, great forward/sniper next pick then another D man with our 3rd pick. Would be quite a haul. Something like Dobson/Bokk/Sandin
If he drops to our spot that would be great. Same really goes with Bouchard, Dobson or Boqvist. Nice that the top 8-9 is so D heavy. None of those would be a reach and any could be seen as a steal at 8.
Anyone have good player comparisons for the D guys? Boqvist, Hughes, Dobson, Bouchard, Wilde, Lundkvist, Sandin.
