    Don't want Dahlin, we have enough D in the system. Need that franchise F to possibly build around.

    Dahlin is spectacular. Adding him would almost be like adding another forward. It's really a draft of Svhechnikov or Dahlin. There's plenty of great talent aside from them in Tkachuk, Wahlstrom, Veleno, etc but the top 2 are really elite.

    If push comes to shove and by The deadline we have serious issues that prompt a makeover... but that is a long way off--I'd be surprised if things didn't improve dramatically before then, but on a purely visceral level, there's a sense of unpredictability/volatility in my blood this year that I don't know where it's coming from.

    I know this is a bad start, but I don't see this team picking in the top 10.

    Ya never know what can derail a team, but a long home losing streak and then a few key injuries and a team could have serious problems.

    However, it is early, we are healthy, why be a fan and talk about tanking before we are even 10% into the reg season? It is ridiculous and makes for shit threads and discussions. It is one thing to discuss the team's problems and even radical fixes, but it is not really fun, interesting or insightful to spend time and space on tanking, in October.

    If we suck, we suck. We won't need to root for a tank. If we suck in the first half then we can be serious about being sellers at the deadline. At least that is a discussion that takes a little thought.

    These 2 weeks kind of looks like the NY Giants season so far. High expectations, only to suck in the beginning of the season and start to snowball.

    This team will sooner go trade for a Staal or a St Louis or some other aged vet well passed his prime rather than say fuck it and properly rebuild. I just dont see it happening.

    Also- see McIlrath & Anderson for what they do with high draft picks

    I feel like, the way this team is built right now, we'll know for sure whether or not we're sellers at the deadline. Much more than years past.

    Really, that only means Nash/Kreider are on the block, but it's a much different position than we've had in a long time. I mean, when even was the last time this team was a bonafide seller? 2002? Ever? lol

    Not that I am giving up on him but he was certainly an off the board pick (slightly anyway).

    I was 97% joking

    The post-Bobby Holik fiasco fire sale year pre lockout that included the shipping of Leetch to Toronto.

    I expected more out of that whole shit show, especially considering how many useful seasons other teams got out of Kovalev (random possibly erroneous thought on my part)

    Can we use this as a 2018 NHL Draft thread?
    Who are these kids?

    Rasmus Dahlin - http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=310545

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMig8EbUFx8

    Andrei Svechnikov - http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=328556

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDk5gw5q9Vo

    Brady Tkachuk (Yes, Matthew's brother, Keith's son) - http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=201473

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Axj1WmW-og

    Filip Zadina - http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=236471

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtUK7LRfUKI

    For the record, I have no idea who these kids are, but just put this together after being curious. I didn't read anything in the links, nor watch any of the videos.
    LGR!

    I wouldnt be surprised if the Rangers finished dead last, lose in the lottery, and pick 4th.
