    Most projections seem to list the draft order along these lines. Assuming top 3 is off limits (barring getting lucky in the lottery) where should we aim to get?

    1. Dahlin
    2. Svechnikov
    3. Zadina
    4. Tkachuk
    5. Boqvist
    6. Hughes
    7. Bouchard
    8. Wahlstrom
    9. Dobson
    10. Smith

    I have a "feeling" on Tkachuk. The few times I've seen him he just plays hard and is an absolute pest in addition to being a really good player overall. I also like Boqvist and Bouchard.

    Why bother? This feels like LTF all over again.

    I've been intrigued by Hughes since seeing him at the world jr's. I thought he was tremendous. Unfortunately, I think he is too similar to D'Angelo and not sure if a defense can have all three of Shat, D, and Hughes. It would be like winning a mini-Stanley Cup if we lucked our way into the top 3 to get one of those studs.

    1- Draft Hughes with 7-9th pick
    2- Kreider and Zib spend next winter hiking in South America
    3- Lundy decides he wants to play for a contender
    4- Draft the other Hughes next summer
    5- Sign a few of the many UFA’s that summer

    Enjoy many years of Hughes brothers

    I got this weird feeling we're going to get lucky for once with this lottery. In recent years we've bucked a lot of historic team trends.I remember in the 2013-14 season in particular I had a thread about the year of broken hexes. All stuff we hadn't done in decades that we started doing. I could see our luck changing for once with this draft too.

    Then there's the part of me that knows, as amply supported by empiric evidence, that the Rangers always get screwed. For instance, we're definitely going to move back one spot to 9th.

    Again, nothing to support it. Just this weird feeling I've had since we started committing fully to the rebuild.

    We can only hope. The cost of trading up could be steeper than any of us are comfortable with.

    Boy, that didn’t take long. Might need to edit the thread title for staying power.

    My first mock lottery on Tankathon after the season ended gave us the 3rd pick. Now, I’m not saying it’s a sign but...
    It’s a sign.

Yes, it's way too early to judge, but let's just say I don't think many NHL team's would trade the 7th pick in this year's or next year's draft for Anderson. By contrast, they all would trade the 21st pick for Chytl.
    I did the exact same thing and it was painful to watch. Luckily he's still 18(19?) so his body may not be fully "evolved" phsyically, but it certainly is a issue I hope they adress right away.

    If both Wahlstrom and Tkachuk is available, who do you pick?

    Tkachuk for me.
    Just seems to add something this team has been lacking for a long time. Namely high octane physical play, in combination with a very good all round skill set. A really tough customer, not in the McLeod mould, but with the full package to boost. Goes after every puck as if his life depended on it. We've been too nice for quite some time. I really like that about him and can see him developing into a real leader.

    At 8? Tkachuk. And I dance all summer long.

    They'll draft one of the undersized D-men, probably Ryan Murr.. Err.. Quinn Hughes.
