MIKE G. MORREALE'S MOCK DRAFT
15. Rangers - Mark McNeill, C, Prince Albert (WHL)
SKINNY: Right-handed center (6-foot-1 1/2, 201 pounds) is tough to play against; good awareness at both ends
ADAM KIMELMAN'S MOCK DRAFT
15. Rangers - Vladimir Namestnikov, C, London (OHL)
SKINNY: Flashy Russian showed no problems adapting in first North American season
STEVEN HOFFNER'S MOCK DRAFT
15. Rangers - Mark Scheifele, C, Barrie (OHL)
SKINNY: Solid center with good numbers (75 points in 66 games) in OHL
The 2011 NHL Entry Draft will be held at the Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota on Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25.
...looks like the experts feel the Rangers should go center. Probably a good idea.
your not gonna get many NHL ready players at the 15th pick. Anyway id love to have Scheifele or McNeill. Scheifele put up those numbers as a rookie and one would think hes only gonna get better.
agree with king about an nhl ready player. wouldn't mind if they took a goalie or offensive dman. could make del zotto expendable in a trade.
I just hope we don't pick another project player. I would really like to see the Rangers draft someone almost NHL ready although tough to do in the middle of the first round. We really don't want another Grachev, Mcilrath, Kreider. Great players and good prospects but won't be in the NHL until about 2-3 years from now. I'm also beggining to have my doubts about Grachev.
@acourtz Haven't done much draft research will definitely be giving those two a look now.
@KevinDeLury oh really?thought he plays center there
