    I'll hide this funny tidbit here. Was looking at Pajuniemi's recent stats and noticed Google Translate turns Kaapo Kakko into Crap Cake.

    BTW Pajuniemi has 2 goals and 3 assists in his last 6 games averaging about 16 minutes a night for TPS.

    13 points in 35 games, 5 in the last 6 in Liiga. Looks like a solid prospect, nice pickup in the 5th round.

    Look at the leagues draft history on http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/draft/index.html

    The draft is littered with guys just like this that never play one NHL game. It's not just the Rangers it's just a numbers game. Very, very few actually make it and the later the round the greater the chance is that they don't make it. I'd imagine that we never hear from this guy in the NHL.

    well, he was a 5th rounder, so Im obviously not expecting anything. Still nice to see him progressing and playing well in a tough league. Most likely he wont turn into anything (like most 5th rounders), but you never know.

    Realistically, they need to get lucky on at least one late round prospect to help this thing turn around.

    Ugh, jeez. Fast is a warm body. Hopefully some of these late picks are more than that.

    Cant really hope for more than a warm body with a 5th round pick.

    We've had 5 1st rounders + 3-4 2nd rounders just the last two seasons. Those picks are supposed to be something more than just a warm body. Getting Fast for a 5th rounder would be a huge win.

    Absolutely, but I'd rather they hit on a depth scoring type of guy than a grinder if that makes sense.
