    Official Draft Pick / Rooting Interest Tracker

    With 20 games to play and the deadline in the rear-view mirror, its time to keep an eye on that draft position.

    Round One
    #9 - NYR
    #24 - WPG

    Round Two
    #40 - NYR
    #47 - DAL (Becomes a 1st if DAL advances to the 3rd round Zucc plays in 50% of the playoff games)
    #62 - TBL (Becomes pick #31 if TBL wins the cup)

    Round Three
    #71 - NYR

    I think at this point it's safe to say that the worst 4 teams are locked up as: Ottawa, LA, Detroit, and Anaheim. I don't think anyone is going to "catch" them. I do think 5-9 can still be battled for but I just feel this Rangers team is too competitive still, even without Zuc and Hayes, to drop all that far. I'm thinking we end up drafting 9 or 10 unless we get extremely lucky with the ping-pong balls.

    Looking at the schedules for games teams with less points than the Rangers play against each other. Lots of points t be had down there. Cross your fingers for lots of OT.....


    Ottawa: EDM, VAN, EDM, NYR

    LA: CHI, ANA, ANA, EDM, VAN, CHI, ANA.

    Detroit: NYR, NYR, NJD

    Anaheim: CHI, LAK, LAK, VAN, EDM, LAK

    NJ: NYR, EDM, VAN, DET, NYR

    Edmonton: OTT, VAN, NJD, OTT, LAK, ANA

    Chicago: ANA, LAK, VAN, LAK

    Vancouver: EDM, NYR, NJD, CHI, OTT, ANA, LAK

    New Jersey and Edmonton are out of reach as well, sadly. We can hope that Chicago and Vancouver keep their playoff hopes alive for a week or two more.

    But when the 'torn-down' Rangers field Georgiev and still take a point against Tampa, it's going to be tough. Best case is 7th-last, I'm afraid.

    They will finish 7th, fall down one spot in the lottery and draft 8th. 7th, 9th last two years, 8th this year.

    I’m sure we’ll see a lot of teams “take the night off” against the Rangers

    Edmonton is rebuilding really well. This is how it's done. All those top picks they can't possibly fail.

    Normally I'd reply that Edmonton FO are idiots... That said I really have slim faith in ours.

    I'd love to move on from Clarke and Gorton.

    On the surface it looks like Gorton is a moron, but I actually think he's fairly clever.

    Still need to find good NA scouts.

    Once they close the ncaa free agency loophole, they’re fucked

    So far his deals seem break even or less. Like McQuaid we recouped picks in rounds, but moved down in actual slots. Stupid.

    Clarke is the real issue here. Lias is a product of the same kind of thinking behind McIlrath in terms of "He's bound to be some type of NHLer..." When you're picking that early and leaving higher upside players on the board because "at worst you're getting a character player."

    Unfortunately, they thought they were still a playoff team that would improve by A) swapping Stepan for Shattenkirk, and B) drafting Lias Anderson who they thought was essentially NHL ready and would help fill the void left by Stepan. They wound up being wrong with both decisions, but I don't think the logic behind the moves was errant. Sometimes shit just doesn't work.

    Lias Andersson could still be good, but he couldn't have been further from NHL ready. Complete miss as far as that is concerned. He needs some serious strength conditioning, because what I see is a player that gets pushed off the puck way too easily. Like a kid versus a man.

    Very rarely is a 19 yr old physically ready for the NHL.. Chytil gets thrown off the puck like nothing as well. Both need and will work on that Iím sure.

    But yea that. Anderson pick isnít looking good.

    Hey I agree with you, but they were pushing NHL ready. If you're not physically ready, you're not NHL ready.

    I still don't understand why you would say such a thing about a kid you just drafted. What is there to gain from heaping all that pressure on him to perform and the organization to play him straight off the bat?
    What's wrong with just saying "We made the pick because we believe Lias will develop into an excellent 2-way center who plays a solid 200 ft game, his compete level is very high and he's got excellent hockey IQ for his age". Maybe they felt a need to defend going off the board, fuck knows really.

    Unless the kid is a total no-brainer like Dahlin/Matthews etc, I just can't fathom why you'd do that. They had no idea how he would adapt to NA ice for starters.

    Welcome to the world of "Clarke ain't what he used to be". Jump in, the water is warm.
