I'd like to think Drury is entertaining the idea of moving down to be honest. The Rangers are lacking picks, and there are teams who are loaded with picks and will be itching to move up. Anaheim, for example, is loaded with picks:

 

3 2nds and 2 3rds this year

2 2nds and 3 3rds next year

 

Anaheim's own 2nd this year is #33. It cost the Rangers a 3rd round pick to move up only 3 spots from #22 to #19 to get Schneider in 2020. Moving from #33 to #23, I'd think an additional 2nd and 3rd is about fair. #33, #60 (from Bos), '24 3rd. Something like that.

The NHL draft is weird as sports drafts go.  Like baseball it takes a long time to get most prospects their first shot at a real job and then you throw the international aspect in and it becomes weirder still.

 

It's almost like once you get outside the 1st round you're drafting to fill your minor affiliates so they can have a decent roster from year to year.
