    With the First-Rounder from Winnipeg...

    ...the Rangers are definitely taking this guy.

    28. Nicholas Robertson: C/LW, Peterborough Petes, 5-foot-9
    NICK ROBERTSON PLAYS HOCKEY IN CAPS LOCK. HE SKATES REALLY FAST. HE HITS REALLY HARD. HE CAN RIP THE CURL-AND-DRAG RELEASE OFF THE RUSH. IF IT DOESNíT GO IN, HEíS FOLLOWING IT TO THE TOP OF THE CREASE. IF THAT DOESNíT WORK, HEíLL CHASE YOU DOWN, HEíLL FIND YOU AND HEíLL KILL YOU. HEíS BASICALLY LIAM NEESON. HEíLL PROBABLY HURT HIMSELF SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY BUT HEíLL MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN OR DIE TRYING.

    All seriousness: If Robertsonís ridiculous compete level and the way he attacks in waves doesnít make him a second-line forward, itíll make him a third-line one.

    Let's be honest here. There isn't a chance in hell Gorton and Quinn keep their grit mitts off a guy with this scouting report.

    I know it's late pick but not sure about targeting 3rd liners in R1.

    I agree, but if you could ever write a scout report encapsulating the archetypical Quinn player that would be it.

    Guys that could drop: Newhook, Caufield, Pelletier, Kaliyev
    Probables: Poulin, Foote
    Settle for: Hoglander

    I definitely hope they swing for upside in the 1st round again like last year.
    What makes you think Newhook will drop that far?

    I'd be surprised if the Rangers pick where that pick is instead of trading up.

    I don't think he will. Those first 4 names are all over the boards, though. Newhook is in an "inferior" league, Coat-tails Caufield, Small Pelletier, and who-knows-what-you'll-get Arthur Kaliyev.

    Joe Veleno was ranked 12-ish and went 30th in the draft. Fingers crossed.

    Getting ahold of someone like Newhook from 20-30 would be a huge get

    What round do you target 2nd and 3rd liners?

    Seems like after the first your lucky if your picks make it to the NHL.

    To be fair, if you get a legit 2nd liner from a late 1st round pick you've done pretty damn well.
    Not saying this guy is one though. It was basically a joke because I just laughed reading Wheelers scouting report on him thinking there is no fucking way gritmeister Quinn & co keep their hands off this one.

    With the First-Rounder from Winnipeg...

    What about Alex Vlasic? Or Albin Grewe?
