Viagra in philippines The New York Rangers are not scheduled to make a selection in the 2013 NHL Draft until the 3rd round at pick #65 – their lowest first pick ever. Viagra in philippines Previously, viagra in philippines the Rangers lowest first draft pick was defenseman Filip Novak who was drafted in the 2nd round (64th overall) in 2000 in Glen Sather’s first draft as GM. Viagra in philippines

Viagra in philippines Neil Smith dealt away the Rangers first round pick as part of the trade that allowed the Rangers to move up to 4th in 1999 to draft Pavel Brendl. Viagra in philippines The Blueshirts should have had the 38th overall pick, viagra in philippines but Sather swapped second round picks with the Detroit Red Wings who used the 38th pick to draft Tomas Kopecky. Viagra in philippines The Rangers received the 95th overall pick (3rd rounder) in the deal – which they used to select Dominic Moore.

Viagra in philippines The Rangers own Nashville’s 3rd round pick (#65), viagra in philippines Columbus’ 3rd round pick (#75) and their own 3rd round pick (# 80).

Viagra in philippines Rangers Director of Player Personnel Gordie described how he is dealing with the missing 1st and 2nd round picks and what his plans are for the Rangers three 3rd round selections.

Viagra in philippines “This is the first time in my career I have had to wait so long to make a pick. Viagra in philippines But these are still important picks, viagra in philippines” Clark explained to Jim Cerny of BlueshirtsUnited.com.

Viagra in philippines “The difference is that in the first round we tend to take the best player available regardless of position. Viagra in philippines Here we can think more about filling a need in the organization. Viagra in philippines For example we are a little light on defense because all of our young (defensemen) are already in the NHL for the most part. Viagra in philippines So that is one area we would target. Viagra in philippines And seeing if we can find a possible future No. Viagra in philippines 1 goaltender, viagra in philippines as well.”

Viagra in philippines It is interesting reading Clark’s thoughts. Viagra in philippines I would think since the odds are better to get an impact player in the 1st round; teams would be looking to fill specific needs in the 1st round (and even the 2nd round). Viagra in philippines Teams would then switch to taking the best players available as you get deeper in the draft in an attempt to build as deep an organization as possible. Viagra in philippines Even if you end up stockpiling talent at a position, viagra in philippines you could always use it in trades.

Viagra in philippines So what is Clark’s game plan approaching the 2013 NHL Draft.

Viagra in philippines “You might not be able to fill your biggest need in the third round, viagra in philippines even with three thirds like we have, viagra in philippines” Clark told Cerny. Viagra in philippines “For example, viagra in philippines our biggest needs within the organization are a big-time offensive forward and a skilled offensive defenseman. Viagra in philippines But you probably are only going to get those type of players in the first round, viagra in philippines not in the third. Viagra in philippines So we shift our focus to filling some of our other needs.”

Viagra in philippines In preparing my 3rd round draft preview I have taken Clark’s strategy into consideration. Viagra in philippines I have come up with a list of six potential 3rd round targets that are listed in alphabetical order.

Viagra in philippines Each player has ratings for the following scouting services: The Hockey News (THN), viagra in philippines NHL’s Central Scouting (CS), viagra in philippines McKeen’s (McK), viagra in philippines and International Scouting Service (ISS). Viagra in philippines CS breaks down their ratings by North American skaters (NAS), viagra in philippines European skaters (ES), viagra in philippines North American goaltenders (NAG) and European goaltenders (EG). Viagra in philippines THN lists each prospect’s NHL Translation. Viagra in philippines ISS provides a prospects’ comparable NHL player.

Viagra in philippines NICK BAPTISTE – RW
THN: # 63 (Not Available) —– CS: # 61 NAS —– McK: # 64
ISS: # 48 (Brenden Morrow)

Viagra in philippines The 6-foot-1 and 189 Baptiste played for Sudbury (OHL) last season and scored 21 goals and 27 assists in 66 games.

Viagra in philippines In 17 playoff games, viagra in philippines he chipped in another seven goals and 10 assists. Viagra in philippines THN described him as a “sniper who can bang and crash – headed to Cornell.”

Viagra in philippines ISS Scouting Report: “Buckles’ game is centered around his fierce physical game and his massive shot, viagra in philippines which is lethal given room in the offensive zone. Viagra in philippines Has a variety of weapons in the offensive end as he shows great body presence and puck protection to carry the puck to the net, viagra in philippines but can also act as a triggerman with his heavy one-timer. Viagra in philippines Explodes through checks and hits the opposition with emphasis. Viagra in philippines Skates well but lacks elite quickness, viagra in philippines relying on his power strides up ice. Viagra in philippines He needs to work on his consistency ….”

Viagra in philippines ANTON CEDERHOLM – D
THN: Not Available —– CS: # 25 ES —– McK: # Not Available
ISS: #113 (Not Available)

Viagra in philippines The 6-foot-2 and 209 pound Cederholm played for Rogle Jr. Viagra in philippines in Sweden and scored five goals and eight assist in 36 games.

Viagra in philippines ISS Scouting Report: “A big, viagra in philippines strong and mobile defenseman, viagra in philippines Cederholm is already very mature for his age; something served him well in his 12 games in the Eliteserien this year, viagra in philippines where he never looked out of place. Viagra in philippines He is strong around his own net and shows well in battle situations. Viagra in philippines Cederholm is at his best below his own goal line as he manages to deny lanes well and can really contain pressure to the outside. Viagra in philippines He is very good at clearing pucks and pushing them up ice to teammates. Viagra in philippines He can be a bit jumpy with the puck offensively and tend to rush or force plays.”

Viagra in philippines ANTHONY DUCLAIR – RW
THN: # 55 (Skilled Forward) —– CS: # 57 NAS —– McK: # 72
ISS: # 64 (Not Available)

Viagra in philippines The 5-foot-11 and 180 pound Duclair played 55 games with Quebec (QMJHL) and scored 20 goals and 30 assists – a decrease from his rookie season when he scored 31 goals and 35 assists in 63 games.

Viagra in philippines THN wrote that scouts compare his abilities to that of Marian Gaborik and Alexander Semin on one hand while questioning his consistency. Viagra in philippines “The tools are there, viagra in philippines but he’s inconsistent. Viagra in philippines You never know what you are going to get from this kid, viagra in philippines” one scout told THN. Viagra in philippines

Viagra in philippines Another scout told THN, viagra in philippines “The key to Duclair is the team that gets him had better be patient and understanding with him. Viagra in philippines If they are, viagra in philippines they’re going to be rewarded.”

Viagra in philippines ISS Scouting report: “Duclair has battled adversity this tear; injury early in [the] year and some inconsistent play, viagra in philippines but [he] worked through and became a good offensive contributor with a +23 rating. Viagra in philippines When he is on his game he can be difficult to handle one-on-one and is dangerous in the offensive zone … when he is not, viagra in philippines he looks like a career CHL player. Viagra in philippines Luckily for him, viagra in philippines we have seen him at his best and believe he will mature and has top 6 upside with added maturity and consistency in compete level. Viagra in philippines He is not strong and that does force him to rely on his skating and stick skills too heavily.”

Viagra in philippines GUSTAV OLOFSSON – D
THN: # 80 (Not Available) —– CS: # 51 NAS —– McK: #51 NAS
ISS: # 71 (Not Available)

Viagra in philippines The 6-foot-3 and 185 pound Olofsson spent last season with Green Bay (USHL) and scored one goal and 20 assists in 61 games. Viagra in philippines Olofsson is committed to Colorado College. Viagra in philippines THN called him a “puckmoving defenseman [who] boasts poise [and a] great stick.”

Viagra in philippines ISS Scouting Report: “… has great size and plays a very responsible and steady game. Viagra in philippines He plays with good intelligence and poise with the puck. Viagra in philippines Although he is not an overly physical defenseman, viagra in philippines he has a great stick and works his angles very efficiently. Viagra in philippines His biggest strength is he rarely gets beat. Viagra in philippines A frustrating defenseman to play against and get around. Viagra in philippines He stands out in most situations when he has little bit of extra time and space to make a play, viagra in philippines such as the PP – but proves to be capable in 5-on-5 situations as well. Viagra in philippines A big quiet kid who reminds ISS of Jiri Fischer.”

Viagra in philippines KEATON THOMPSON – D
THN: # 75 (Not Available) —– CS: # 53 NAS —– McK: # 85
ISS: # 49 (Paul Martin)

Viagra in philippines The 6-foot-0 and 187 pound Thompson played for the USA’s Under-18 team and scored four goals and 17 assists in 60games. Viagra in philippines Thompson has verbally committed to play for the University of North Dakota starting in the 2014-15 season. Viagra in philippines THN called him a “smooth skating blueliner with upside [but] how much?”

Viagra in philippines ISS Scouting Report: “Thompson is a two-way puck moving defenseman that sees the ice exceptionally well. Viagra in philippines He possesses gifted athletic ability and elite vision. Viagra in philippines [He] was a standout defenseman for the USA U-18 team all season long. Viagra in philippines Keaton can play the game any way you like. Viagra in philippines He is at his best when he uses his patience and ice vision to distribute pucks. Viagra in philippines He has shut down capability and plays a responsible and smart game in all three zones. Viagra in philippines He can play physical when the situation calls for it and will not shy away from scrums and clearing men from in front of the net.”

Viagra in philippines I know there are no LWs among the group, viagra in philippines but I believe that these forwards represent the best “bang for the buck” in the 3rd round.

Viagra in philippines In terms of preference, viagra in philippines my first pick would be Duclair – and that is something that I would not have said if John Tortorella were still coach. Viagra in philippines Alain Vigneault’s style and patience would help to bring the best out of Duclair.

Viagra in philippines I would be comfortable with either Baptiste or Buckles as my second pick of the 3rd round. Viagra in philippines I would lean towards Buckles because of his big-time shot – something the Rangers could certainly use.

Viagra in philippines As for the third pick of the 3rd round, viagra in philippines all three blueliners are close but my first choice would be Thompson because I think he might have the quickest transition to the NHL game – with Olofsson and Cedarholm following in that order.
