At this point in time the combine is not going to change the draft order on those two. It is already set in stone. I think it will be Kakko first. But I like Hirschier and think he's fine as a number one center and Kakko is a 10 year linemate for him. Pretty good start on a long term number one line. Does Shero want that or does he want a Hirschier, Hughes one-two punch down the middle. Hughe's talent is obvious, and he would be a welcome addition to the Rangers who can't lose drafting second unless Gord finds another 15th overall rated player to draft at two.

That's been my worry.

There should be absolutely no worry about what The Rangers are going to do. If they don't land Kakko as forecasted, it will be because The Devils passed on this guy



I didn't see a lot of this WC, so these highlight packages are nice. Most of this is Hughes showing nice hands, and skating... He's going to be an elite level talent... He's just not as NHL ready as Kakko is on day 1.

Looks like he had some chemistry with Kreider in the final game vs Russia. So if Hughes is the consolation prize.... I'll take it.... but I honestly think NJD take Hughes at 1. Zajac is trash. They'd be smart to have

Hischier
Hughes
Zacha

down the middle with Hughes and Hischier constantly competing for the #1C role

If The Rangers end up with Hughes, it will force them to trade one of their young centers

Zibanejad
Chytil
Hughes
Howden
Andersson

Or move one or more to the wing.... which would add to the list of wingers who can play center... Strome, Namestnikov, Kravtsov....


Going to be an interesting Summer. THAT much is sure

I've said before, i think Hughes projects to wing at the NHL level. His game would translate much better at that position. I bet he starts the season at center and whatever team drafts him will have him at wing by the end of the year.

The Rangers are known for going off the board drafting. Time will tell if they were smart or dumb picking Andersson, and Kravstov where they did. In this case it would be asinine to go off the board and they wont, but I say it tongue in cheek they might. The thing saving themselves from themselves is the talent package Hughes and Kakko bring, which is far superior to the next best player at three overall.

I've said that on here a couple times. The way he controls the puck with guys on him is very similar. He's going to be a horse.

I like Kakko but certainly no problem if Jersey takes him Hughes would be a nice consolation prize.

I think I'm going to be a little disappointed if they end up with Hughes...but I guess that's more to do with the image the media has portrayed of Kakko...

These are two dynamic players. Both will have a huge impact on their new team. Its all about waiting on Jersey who could select either one. Looking forward to tomorrow night.

McKenzie's final list

I think The Rangers are very willing to package any of their remaining picks after #2 to acquire young quality NHL talent to help not just the franchise, but Henrik Lundqvist win a Cup.

Drafting Kakko already makes this draft a win.... if they pick 8 more kids in this draft and NONE of them pan out, we'll still see this draft a win...... "Well.... at least we got Kakko...."

At least I would... The prospect pool is pretty full.

If they can pull this off AND sign Panarin?.... Jeez....

I've been saying this all year but it's incredible that the same team is going to have likely 8 first round picks. A real testament to USA Hockey, the ADM and the direction they've taken U18 in the last few years.

After getting Jacob and Fox and the #2 pick tomorrow I absolutely think Rangers should use picks etc...to make more deals....We can afford it because of the stockpiling we have done. I would explore Kreider Vesey to Buffalo for the 7 or Oil 8. I would also offer sheet Mitch Marner. Starting with 2017 over 10 drafts we would still have 10 1's if we got him and lost 4 #1's

Remember, you have 3 North American Pro franchises to fill, not counting assignments to CHL, Europe, KHL, and NCAA. There's always room for better..

Dude says he does NOT know anything about the Rangers, doesn't know any players except for Georgie. Do you watch NHL hockey at all, the team is only like 90 years old. It is the Rangers not Columbus. :-)
