Thanks to everybody for the congrats. I just got out of the sin bin here, but oddly I could stay logged in and like posts? Weird. It was a super fun final and I got hammered the night they won. Didn’t

Why aren’t they showing flyers highlights 

Took grand daughter to her first Ducks game, for her 5th birthday.   Pretty awesome until they dropped the puck. lol.   Ducks gave her an autographed picture of her favorite player, John Gibson.   We

I always laugh at the Kings two picks before Corey Perry also.

Haha that's really bad. At least us Rangers fans aren't the only ones in pain from that draft. They did hit on their earlier pick with Brown so could be worse.

The Parise one hurt the most. Not getting a bonafide top center that I always wanted hurt too, but seeing Parise a ton over the years just killed me. They passed up on a lot of good players, but then watching Parise always seeming like he had our number stung. Constant reminder of that draft every time we played NJD.

Another real bad one. Don't know how I nearly forgot about this. 2006 draft. We take Sanguinetti. Supposed to be our offensive d-man of the future. Pick right after ours? Philly. They take Claude Giroux. Rumor had it that Philly was going to take Sanguinetti if we didn't take him. So there's another guy who we ended up seeing quite a bit over the years. 

So between 2003, 2006, 2010, and about 4 years of not having 1st round picks in four drafts from 2013 to 2016, finally getting some talented youth is exciting. Hopefully some of these guys pan out.

Sorry, nothing to contribute to this conversation as I was watching Laffy highlights all night. Cant wait until the Rangers play the Mighty Getzlafs this year. 

I admit, I watched a fair share of his highlights last night too. 

Woke up this morning in a state of confusion. "Wait, we have the #1 pick? It wasn't a dream?" 

Still in disbelief.

Pavel Brendl?

Another misguided reference. He* broke Gretzky's  single season goal record in (NHL) 99, what more do you want from him?

There is way too many years where they traded away top picks. Not an ideal strategy.

In 2004, they bombed on pick 6, 9, 36, 48 and 51.  Probably the year they best were best at stock piling picks. The did well at 60 and 127 with Dubinsky and Callahan.

You can talk about the disfuntion of the drafts, yet they still made the playoffs every year, went to a cup final and a conference final back to back. 

When they realized the errors of their ways by trading all those picks away, they decided to tear it down. They had zero in the pipeline and now look at them. 

There is never a guarantee when you draft 17 and 18 year old kids. The Rangers are not the only ones who have missed. Have they done it a lot, yes, but are not alone in having misses. 

And like rude said, there is not 1 single team who does not take Kakko there. The kid moved to a new country, learned a new language, played on a smaller rink and put a ton of pressure on himself. no one here cares that he had 23 points. In fact, I would argue that he was the best Ranger after they came back. He will be fine. 

With all the talent, they still lack depth at Center and that is a big issue. Some are suggesting trading for one. It will be interesting to see what happens.

Let's remember that his terrible argument went from "the Rangers will #### it up" and "they have the worst track record in the NHL" to "their guys under perform" while bashing the production of an 18 year old kid and not giving any credit to the 2018 picks for no reason at all.

2015 was deep enough in puck moving defensemen that Phil Myers went undrafted.

Strange presser by Pens GM Rutherford 

This

@JoshYohe_PGH: GMJR: “There is something wrong. Changes need to be made.”

Okay so youre selling?

@JoshYohe_PGH: GMJR shoots down the idea of trading Malkin or Letang. “I’m trying to move forward with this core.”

Huh?

@JoshYohe_PGH: GMJR: “I know everybody picks on Jack and they have for a long time, but I think, in that pairing, Justin Schultz had a lot more to give.”

And then he runs his players over

man, Rutherford and Jack Johnson have quite a long history together.

I almost wonder if he's attempting some kind of Jedi mind trick on the other GMs.

"I don't want to part with this liability but for the right bunch of prospects we can talk"

best part of the 2015 draft is the Bruins had 3 picks and passed on Barzal, Connor and Chabot!

See what I mean? :lmao:

I would love to have a sit down with John Cooper and see if he is influenced by watching soccer. I have seen multiple up, back and through plays with what we would call a 3rd man run.

@reporterchris: This is the sixth game in nine days for #CBJ and the third to go to overtime. The schedule is not their friend here.

 

Let’s hope so

Hour old tweet ...really odd number 

@reporterchris: We'll officially enter a delay situation for tonight's BOS-CAR game once we get beyond 6:42 p.m. ET.

The NHL requires an 87.5-minute turnaround between games. And double overtime is just beginning here at Scotiabank Arena.

That's what happens when you have a Crosby fan and a Kane fan negotiating a deal.
