  • Hockey Wilderness Community 2011 NHL Mock Draft: New York Rangers


    Instead, the community selected Zack Phillips, a player some *cough* me *cough* and a few others have the Wild selecting at 10. His skating is the only knock against him. I hear it too many times for it to even mean anything any more. Saying a prospects skating is an issue is like listening to a car alarm in a parking lot. It should mean pay attention, but no one ever does.

    Great pick for the Stars at fourteen.
    Our mock draft thus far:

    The New York Rangers are the crown jewel of the NHL's media plan. Sure, the Habs and the Leafs are probably better at making the league money, but without the New York market, the NHL ratings would tank, and there would be some major issues. Same gos for the Rangers not being very good. If the Rags stink, the market doesn't watch, and ratings can suffer. Maybe they didn't dip into panic territory this year, but stretch it out, and they will. 

    To prevent that, Glen Sather is going to need talent. Of course, he'll probably just trade it away or bury them in the AHL once they show they are an NHL talent and he signs a terrible contract with them. However, before they can botch the development, they need to draft someone. 

    Reminder... Jere Sallinen is still available.
