Marek: Rangers Nearly Had Deal for Fourth Overall in 2016, Wanted Clayton Keller

It has been rumored that the Rangers were close to making a huge deal at the draft and it fell through at the last moment. Gorton even alluded to it at one point. I suppose this is that move.

 

I have no doubt that this draft will be similar. Some massive talent this year, I expect the Rangers to be very active.

Well, they also nearly had a deal complete for the third overall at the past draft where they were going to take Makar.

Oh. That's what I was thinking about. Interesting it's happened two years in a row. I think the time is now to roll the dice and make a splash for that top 3-5 player. Can't be afraid of trading too much now. There's nothing left to lose.

At least they were trying to do something for a potential gamebreaker. Got my hopes up. Phil, remember how pissed I was all off season, especially during expansion and the draft. You told me not to worry we'd get Dahlin. You are such a dreamer. Better manage your expectations.

Didn't we talk about this here already, a month or so ago?

 

Phil, I believe Step was going to be the main piece going to Edmonton. Marek on SiriusXM mentioned it a while back and Step was the rumored player. It is too bad it did not work out.

 

I dont recall, but they had just drafted McDavid, had RNH, and Draistaitl. I dont think they were looking for a C, hence why they would trade down if Puljujarvi wasnt on the board.

Yeah. If they deal Nash and Grabner for two firsts, even late, I wonder if those plus the Rangers' is enough to move them into the top-five? If not, a Draft-day deal of McDonagh surely would. Miller, plus the Rangers' first might get them there, too, while letting them keep the later picks.

I know. :(

If they can get one of the big foreign wingers - go for it.

 

I dont really want to do McDonagh for the 3rd, though. I'd do Miller + for 3rd, though

 

Same. I want McDonagh to go for now pieces. Miller and the Rangers' first I think should do it. Like if the Rangers are picking, say, 12th or so.
