Derph generic tablet viagra It is hard enough trying to preview first round selections when you have a draft as volatile as the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Derph generic tablet viagra Trying to preview the subsequent rounds is even harder. Derph generic tablet viagra With that said, derph generic tablet viagra I am going to plow through and present four players that the Rangers should keep an eye on in the second round.As I mentioned in my first round previews, derph generic tablet viagra if Logan MacMillan or Michael Repik were available in the second round I would not hesitate to draft either of them in the second round. Derph generic tablet viagra I have often espoused the draft philosophy of going the opposite way in the second round. Derph generic tablet viagra For example, derph generic tablet viagra if I pick a forward in the first round then I am more inclined to look for a defenseman in the second round and vice versa.

Derph generic tablet viagra Colby Cohen is a 6-foot-2 and 200 pound defenseman played for Lincoln in the USHL. Derph generic tablet viagra In 53 games, derph generic tablet viagra he scored 13 goals and added 47 assists with 110 PIM. Derph generic tablet viagra The native of Pennsylvania was with the USA National Team Development Program before heading to the USHL. Derph generic tablet viagra Cohen will be joining first round prospect Kevin Shattenkirk at Boston University in the fall.

Derph generic tablet viagra Cohen is rated as the 54th best prospect by THN, derph generic tablet viagra the 25th best North American skater by CSS and the 43rd best player by ISS who compares him to Bryan McCabe.

Derph generic tablet viagra As he stands poised to begin his freshman year of collegiate hockey, derph generic tablet viagra Cohen is an offensive defenseman who projects out as a leader on the power play and as a player who will generate offense. Derph generic tablet viagra ISS writes, derph generic tablet viagra “He’s got a very good shot, derph generic tablet viagra especially the one-timer. Derph generic tablet viagra His greatest assets are his vision of the ice, derph generic tablet viagra passing ability, derph generic tablet viagra and his reads. Derph generic tablet viagra He has a great first pass out of the zone and can “thread the needle” when the opportunity presents itself. Derph generic tablet viagra His skating has continually improved over the last few years and will be even stronger when he physically matures.”

Derph generic tablet viagra ISS does cautions against “whispers in the past of attitude problems” and the need for Cohen to work on defensive play in order for him to become an all-around solid blueliner. Derph generic tablet viagra It will not be a surprise to hear Cohen’s name called in the first round.

Derph generic tablet viagra Another defenseman who might have his name called in the first round is Nick Ross. Derph generic tablet viagra The 6-foot-1 and 190 pound Ross played with Regina in the WHL. Derph generic tablet viagra In 70 games, derph generic tablet viagra he scored 7 goals and 24 assists with 87 PIM.

Derph generic tablet viagra THN rates him as the 58th best player, derph generic tablet viagra CSS lists him as the 18th best North American skater and ISS rates him as the 42nd best player and compares him to Sheldon Souray.

Derph generic tablet viagra “Nick Ross is a two-way, derph generic tablet viagra mobile defenseman. Derph generic tablet viagra He can move the puck, derph generic tablet viagra make a play, derph generic tablet viagra and give you some time on the power play. Derph generic tablet viagra He competes hard, derph generic tablet viagra and has some bite in his game, derph generic tablet viagra” Philadelphia Director of Hockey Operations Chris Pryor said on the Flyers official web site.

Derph generic tablet viagra ISS offered concerns about Ross’ fitness level and conditioning which were brought out during the CHL’s skills testing. Derph generic tablet viagra However, derph generic tablet viagra those physical concerns aside (after all, derph generic tablet viagra he is only 18 and NBA wags are saying the same thing about Kevin Durrant), derph generic tablet viagra ISS is very pleased with his overall game.

Derph generic tablet viagra “Ross loves to step up and lay a hit on the opposing forward, derph generic tablet viagra” ISS writes. Derph generic tablet viagra “His defensive awareness needs work, derph generic tablet viagra but his coachability has never been questioned. Derph generic tablet viagra [He is a] puck moving rearguard that can be used on the PP for his great shot from the point.”

Derph generic tablet viagra The next two players are the ones that I am most excited about.

Derph generic tablet viagra First up is LW Max Gratchev. Derph generic tablet viagra Born in Russia, derph generic tablet viagra Gratchev spent his youth hockey playing in the United States before he was drafted by Quebec (QMJHL) and Patrick Roy. Derph generic tablet viagra The 5-foot-11 and 196 pound Gratchev developed after being traded from Quebec to Rimouski during the 2005-2006 season. Derph generic tablet viagra He flourished this season scoring 35 goals and 42 assists with 88 PIM in 70 games for Rimouski.

Derph generic tablet viagra THN rates him as the 39th best prospect, derph generic tablet viagra CSS the 46th best North American skater and ISS rates him their 39th best player and compares him to Buffalo’s Ales Kotalik.

Derph generic tablet viagra “He’s a fireball, derph generic tablet viagra” one scout told THN. Derph generic tablet viagra “He’s not a great skater, derph generic tablet viagra but he’s quick from the faceoff circle to the net.”

Derph generic tablet viagra Another note pointed out by THN is that he is more mature than the average North American prospect. Derph generic tablet viagra He missed being eligible for last year’s draft by 11 days. Derph generic tablet viagra With three years of Junior hockey under his belt, derph generic tablet viagra he should be ready for professional hockey sooner than the average second round draft pick.

Derph generic tablet viagra ISS calls him a “highly skilled winger, derph generic tablet viagra with extremely good offensive instincts. Derph generic tablet viagra He seems to be a step ahead with his vision/decision making which gives him a good passing game. Derph generic tablet viagra [He] has a tremendous nose for the net [and] an accurate shot to along with a very quick release – attributes that are needed to score at the next level.”

Derph generic tablet viagra ISS does caution that he does need to get stronger and work on his defensive positioning.

Derph generic tablet viagra The other player that intrigues me is goaltender Joel Gistedt. Derph generic tablet viagra While goaltending, derph generic tablet viagra at first, derph generic tablet viagra does not appear to be a concern with Henrik Lundqvist and Al Montoya in the organization, derph generic tablet viagra the Rangers still have to be thinking about the future. Derph generic tablet viagra Whether Ranger fans like it or not, derph generic tablet viagra the Blueshirts will have to trade one of them or face the return of the Van Richterbrouck situation. Derph generic tablet viagra The mishandling of that situation meant the Rangers only received Doug Lidster in exchange for John Vanbiesbrouck.

Derph generic tablet viagra While the organization did finally sign Miika Wiikman, derph generic tablet viagra the Rangers still could use another potential starter in the organizational – albeit a few years down the road, derph generic tablet viagra especially when (not if) they trade Montoya.

Derph generic tablet viagra Gistedt is a 5-foot-11 and 174 pound netminder who played for Frolunda in Sweden last year. Derph generic tablet viagra The Rangers have had pretty good success with Frolunda goaltenders, derph generic tablet viagra namely Lundqvist. Derph generic tablet viagra In 35 games with Frolunda, derph generic tablet viagra Gistedt posted a 17-13-4 record with a 2.58 goals against average and a .897 save percentage. Derph generic tablet viagra Gistedt eventually replaced NHL veteran Tommy Salo in goal for Frolunda. Derph generic tablet viagra He also backstopped Sweden in the World Junior Championship going 1-4 with a 1.96 GAA and a .912 SV%. Derph generic tablet viagra THN rates Gistedt as the 44th best prospect, derph generic tablet viagra CSS as the best European goaltender and ISS rates him 72nd overall. Derph generic tablet viagra Believe it or not, derph generic tablet viagra all 30 teams passed on Gistedt last season.

Derph generic tablet viagra “He’s come out of nowhere, derph generic tablet viagra” a scout explained to THN. Derph generic tablet viagra “He’s a guy teams wish they would have drafted last year.” Remember that quote when Glen Sather either trades or doesn’t sign on of his 2006 draft picks.

Derph generic tablet viagra Here is Gistedt’s CSS Scouting Report: “A well-positioned butterfly goaltender … has good pad quickness and a very quick glove … moves well and is strong in his crease … works hard and has good anticipation.”

Derph generic tablet viagra The final word on Gistedt belongs to Flyers pro scout Ilkka Sinisalo.

Derph generic tablet viagra “Joel Gistedt is not very big, derph generic tablet viagra but he’s very quick. Derph generic tablet viagra He really has all of the tools necessary to be a good professional goaltender.”
