New York Rangers

NHL Teams :

Team Needs: C, D, LW, RW

Draft Preview: Most would argue Kaapo Kakko is the entire second tier of this draft year based on the fact he might be able to make the transition to the NHL next season. A lot depends upon whether the Rangers see as a future NHL centre or as a NHL winger or if they have go out in the first round and fill their weak prospect pool at defenseman. I expect they will use their two first rounders and the two (possibly three) second rounders to continue adding more high skilled forwards but add to the thin prospect pool on defense. Unless...they feel compelled to jump on the Bowen Byram bandwagon, and let KK slip? Not likely since they will have a chance at one of the first round defnders who will be pushed down the slots due to the strong centre-forward group.
