Draft Day: We Called It

We listed 4 possible first round picks for the Rangers - and they ended up picking one of those four:

With the 19th pick the NY Rangers selected Chris Kreider. He's American, a great skater, a big guy, with a great shot and a scoring touch.

Official stats:

  • Plays Center and Left Wing
  • 6'2"
  • Weighs 201
  • Scored 56 points in 26 games last year

He's a high schooler with plenty of upside. He's known for real quickness (which is different from speed) and the ability to create turnovers.

We're very happy with the pick over here at Blueshirt Brothers. Nugman's one negative is that Kreider is reportedly a Red Sox fan.

  • Our 2nd pick was Ethen Werek, a 6-1 forward who scored 32 goals (that's goals, not points) last season.
  • And our 3rd pick - the 80th overall was Ryan Bourque
  • At 127 we took the Czech player: Roman Horak, a 6'0" 198 pound center.
  • At 140 we took a goalie: Scott Stajcer

More to come....
