2011 NHL Draft


Sildenafil plant I don’t know whose idea it was to have Derek Boogaard’s brother Aaron make the Rangers first selection at the 2011 NHL Draft, sildenafil plant but that person deserves to have their name known. Sildenafil plant The New York Rangers may not always make the right on-ice moves, sildenafil plant but this decision was an absolute Hall-of-Famer decision by the Blueshirts – and they deserve all the credit in the world for it.

Sildenafil plant Unfortunately, sildenafil plant I can’t say the same about their first round draft pick J.T. Sildenafil plant Miller – especially when players like Mark McNeill (my selection in my Draft Preview) and Joel Armia were still available.

Sildenafil plant Outside of Red Line Report (RLR) who had him ranked as their ninth best player, sildenafil plant Miller was seen as a mid-first rounder by the likes of International Scouting Service (ISS) who had Miller as their 17th best player and NHL’s Central Scouting (CS) who ranked him as the 23rd best skater in North America, sildenafil plant and TSN.ca ranked the center as their 18th best prospect. Sildenafil plant The Hockey News (THN) ranked him 59th.

Sildenafil plant Interestingly enough, sildenafil plant RLR compared Miller’s style of play to that of Erik Cole. Sildenafil plant While Cole is a nice player, sildenafil plant I don’t know any GMs who would select him with the 15th overall pick.

Sildenafil plant On the other hand, sildenafil plant RLR compared Armia’s style of play to that of Tomas Vanek/James Neal. Sildenafil plant

Sildenafil plant Anyone who needs to review McNeill’s pedigree can simply check out Part 1 of my Rangers Draft Preview to see how he was ranked. Sildenafil plant As for Armia, sildenafil plant well that is a different story. Sildenafil plant Frankly, sildenafil plant he probably would have been my choice over McNeill with the 15th pick.

Sildenafil plant I didn’t bother to include the Finnish RW because I did not see him lasting until the Rangers pick at #15 – I had him going to Colorado with the 11th overall pick – with good reason. Sildenafil plant All of the scouting services I used had him ranked higher than Miller on the whole. Sildenafil plant Only RLR had Miller ranked higher (20th as opposed to 9th). Sildenafil plant Miller was ranked 13th by ISS and 15th by THN while CS ranked him as the 4th best European skater.

Sildenafil plant While Armia has parts of his game that still need work (including defense and finding a consistent high work level), sildenafil plant the one thing Armia does bring to the table are world-class offensive skills in a 6-3/191 package.

Sildenafil plant I know people are putting their trust in Gordie Clark’s track record when waiting to see how Miller’s development progresses – and that is a valid point. Sildenafil plant However, sildenafil plant to me, sildenafil plant it seems that the Rangers have J.T. Sildenafil plant Miller type players already in their system – good solid two-way forwards – as opposed to the game-breaking potential that Armia has.

Sildenafil plant Since the Rangers did not have a safety net of the two 2nd round draft picks, sildenafil plant it appears that the organization decided to go the safe route with Miller rather than take a risk on someone like Joel Armia.

Sildenafil plant In speaking with NHL.com, sildenafil plant David Gregory of CS offered up his assessment of Miller.

Sildenafil plant “I like how he uses his size and strength. Sildenafil plant He is a power forward that can dominate on the boards and possesses a great shot. Sildenafil plant He moves very well, sildenafil plant has the ability to impose his will on the game. Sildenafil plant He just needs to improve his consistency, sildenafil plant especially using his strength, sildenafil plant game in and game out. Sildenafil plant He’ll be a better overall player when his puck-handling and confidence with the puck improves.”

Sildenafil plant As expected, sildenafil plant the Rangers pulled off a couple of trades to replace draft picks lost in previous deals. Sildenafil plant In order to move back into the 3rd round, sildenafil plant Glen Sather sent Evgeny Grachev to St. Sildenafil plant Louis in exchange for the 72nd overall pick – which the Rangers used to select Edina High School’s Steven Fogarty.

Sildenafil plant While you hate to see a team give up on a player like Grachev, sildenafil plant it must just be time for both sides to move on – a point that Sather stressed while addressing the media following the Draft.

Sildenafil plant “He just felt that he wasn’t fitting in with our system. Sildenafil plant He’s been with us for three years now, sildenafil plant two years in Hartford. Sildenafil plant We liked him. Sildenafil plant We just feel that the person that we got in the trade is going to be able to respond a little bit quicker, sildenafil plant” wrote Jesse Spector of the Daily News. Sildenafil plant “Sometimes guys get trapped up in that situation where they don’t think they can go anywhere, sildenafil plant and you’re better off going. Sildenafil plant They really like (Steven) Fogarty, sildenafil plant so we made a deal to get him.”

Sildenafil plant Ranger fans shouldn’t expect to see the 6-2/194 center anytime soon. Sildenafil plant Fogarty is expected to play next season with the Chicago Steel of the USHL before heading to the University of Notre Dame. Sildenafil plant

Sildenafil plant Fogarty was ranked 78th by RLR and as the 90th NA skater by CS. Sildenafil plant RLR projected Fogarty out as a “physical 3rd/4th line checking centre” and compared his style to Tomas Kopecky.

Sildenafil plant Here is what RLR wrote about Fogarty:

Sildenafil plant “Athletic Playmaking Centre with a lean, sildenafil plant muscular frame and great natural strength. Sildenafil plant Has good vision and hockey sense. Sildenafil plant Skilled passer who looks to dish first and shoot second, sildenafil plant but he can score and does have an accurate shot. Sildenafil plant Has the ability to make big plays at crucial moments. Sildenafil plant Will give you everything he’s got every shift. Sildenafil plant Keeps his big body in motion at all times and is persistent on the forecheck, sildenafil plant but we’d like to see him drive the net more and finish off his checks with more gusto. Sildenafil plant His skating is rough at this stage, sildenafil plant but stride isn’t bad – it’s more just a lack of leg strength for now. Sildenafil plant Supports his defencemen and is sharp to mark his defensive assignments. Sildenafil plant Tough to knock off the puck but his feet, sildenafil plant especially his first two strides, sildenafil plant need some work.”

Sildenafil plant His future coach at Notre Dame, sildenafil plant Jeff Jackson, sildenafil plant offered the following opinion on the Fighting Irish’s official web site, sildenafil plant “Steven is a smart, sildenafil plant offensive player who has excellent instincts with and without the puck. Sildenafil plant He has shown strong scoring skills at the high school level. Sildenafil plant He has excellent character and leadership ability and I think he can be an impact player at Notre Dame after spending a year in junior hockey (Chicago Steel – USHL).”

Viagra herb alternative The Rangers followed up the selections of two power forwards (Miller and Fogarty) be selecting two small, viagra herb alternative but very talented and fast-skating offensive forwards in 4th round draft pick (106th) Michael St. Viagra herb alternative Croix and 5th round pick (134th – first of two) Shane McColgan.

Viagra herb alternative Prior to making the deal with Calgary for Tim Erixon, viagra herb alternative St. Viagra herb alternative Croix was one of the players I was looking at with the Blueshirts two 2nd round picks. Viagra herb alternative The 5-11/176 center is the son of former NHL goaltender Rick St. Viagra herb alternative Croix and slipped a bit in the draft given his final draft rankings: THN (46th), viagra herb alternative ISS, viagra herb alternative (63rd), viagra herb alternative RLR (64th), viagra herb alternative and CS (59th NA). Viagra herb alternative RLR’s projection lists him as a “2nd line scorer on a poor team or minor leaguer” with a style comparison to Radim Vrbata. Viagra herb alternative

Viagra herb alternative Interestingly, viagra herb alternative in their 2010 Draft Preview ISS ranked McColgan as the 15th best prospect and St. Viagra herb alternative Croix as the 20th best prospect – ahead of 2011 1st round selections J.T. Viagra herb alternative Miller (46th), viagra herb alternative Jonathan Huberdeau (50th) and Ryan Strome (63rd).

Viagra herb alternative The Winnipeg, viagra herb alternative Manitoba native showed good improvement from his rookie season (66-18-28-46) with Edmonton (WHL) and his second season (27-48-75).

Viagra herb alternative THN: One scout said, viagra herb alternative “He plays more of an east-west game that a north-south game, viagra herb alternative so defensemen need to honor that, viagra herb alternative especially because of his stickhandling. Viagra herb alternative Speed is his biggest asset. Viagra herb alternative He sees the ice well and he distributes the puck well.

Viagra herb alternative RLR: “His hockey intelligence and ability to see plays developing make him a constant threat. Viagra herb alternative His puck skills and pinpoint accurate shot are also high end and he has an uncanny ability to find open space in scoring areas. Viagra herb alternative Major downside is he tends to take his natural abilities for granted and becomes invisible for long stretches….When his compete level is up, viagra herb alternative his elite offensive instincts and finishing ability will make him a valuable scorer. Viagra herb alternative But any team thinking about drafting him will have to understand he’s a major boom or bust type.”

Viagra herb alternative ISS: “Highly skilled offensive playmaker who, viagra herb alternative when on, viagra herb alternative can really amplify the skill sets of his teammates. Viagra herb alternative He is [a] quick and explosive player with the puck and works better in zone play off the rush. Viagra herb alternative Although he has not set the WHL scoring charts on fire, viagra herb alternative he has been able to showcase good offensive potential for the next level. Viagra herb alternative He is creative and skilled enough to execute in difficult circumstances. Viagra herb alternative He is not strong and that does force him to rely on his skating and stick skills too heavily.”

Viagra herb alternative Much like St. Viagra herb alternative Croix, viagra herb alternative McColgan was a player of interest back when the Rangers still owned their 2nd round draft picks – even though I would have felt a lot better selecting him in the 3rd round. Viagra herb alternative Getting McColgan in the 5th round is a real draft bonus as far as I am concerned.

Viagra herb alternative Looking back to this time last year, viagra herb alternative McColgan’s fine rookie season with Kelowna (71-25-44-69) positioned him as a potential first round draft pick entering the 2010/2011 season.

Viagra herb alternative In Ryan Kennedy’s “2011 Sneak peak” article in THN’s 2010 Draft Preview McColgan was ranked as the 9th best prospect. Viagra herb alternative Kennedy writes, viagra herb alternative “Highly skilled and fearless, viagra herb alternative reminiscent of Theo Fleury, viagra herb alternative but with a bit more size.” A scout said, viagra herb alternative “It’s the second gear – when he gets the puck, viagra herb alternative he turns it up. Viagra herb alternative Lots of skill, viagra herb alternative hard to play against; just a hard-nosed kid.”

Viagra herb alternative The 5-9/160 RW suffered from a sophomore slump with the Rockets this season. Viagra herb alternative In 67 games, viagra herb alternative he scored 21 goals and added 45 assists.

Viagra herb alternative “I feel it was a pretty good year. Viagra herb alternative I had surgery at the start of the year because I had to take out my tonsils. Viagra herb alternative I think the surgery slowed me down a little bit and hindered my play for a couple games, viagra herb alternative but once I was fully recovered I think I really started to get going, viagra herb alternative” McColgan explained to Yahoo’s Kelly Freisen in a June 1, viagra herb alternative 2011 article. Viagra herb alternative It seemed I got better with every game and I had a real strong playoff.”

Viagra herb alternative The Manhattan Beach, viagra herb alternative California native’s assessment was spot-on because he scored 8 goals and 11 assists in 10 playoff games.

Viagra herb alternative Despite his stellar playoff run, viagra herb alternative McColgan’s final 2011 rankings did not reflect his 2010 promise: THN (97th), viagra herb alternative CS (125th NA), viagra herb alternative ISS (96th – and their 5th best skater), viagra herb alternative and RLR (57th). Viagra herb alternative RLR wrote that he projects out as a “2nd liner for a poor team, viagra herb alternative 3rd [liner] for a good club.” They compared his style to that of Nathan Gerbe.

Viagra herb alternative Outside of his size, viagra herb alternative the main knock on McColgan is that he is a fan of Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins – as stated in the Friesen interview. Viagra herb alternative Obviously, viagra herb alternative the Rangers will have to see that he undergoes an extensive debriefing and reprogramming in that respect .

Viagra herb alternative RLR: “Barely 5-8 but his offensive skills are so dynamic it seems unfair to bill him as just another speedy, viagra herb alternative undersized forward. Viagra herb alternative One of the best pure skaters in this draft class with an explosive first step, viagra herb alternative great acceleration, viagra herb alternative agility, viagra herb alternative and a top-end separation gear. Viagra herb alternative Can handle the puck and make moves at top end speed. Viagra herb alternative At times the puck looks glued to his stick. Viagra herb alternative Great hands, viagra herb alternative stick skills, viagra herb alternative and vision allow him to take control of the PP from the halfboards, viagra herb alternative where he makes creative cross-ice passes. Viagra herb alternative Improvement in his defensive game this year made him a more reliable player and allowed him to become an on-ice leader for Kelowna down the stretch. Viagra herb alternative Was able to step his game up another notch in the playoffs, viagra herb alternative too. Viagra herb alternative Uses gamebreaking speed to keep the play hemmed in the opposition’s zone at even strength, viagra herb alternative even if that means mixing it up down low.”

Name brand cialis After drafting forwards with their first four selections, name brand cialis the New York Rangers put forth a case for the defense by drafting two blueliners with their final two picks of the 2011 NHL Draft – even going go so far to deal a 2012 6th round draft pick to Nashville for their 2011 6th round draft pick (#172).

Name brand cialis The Rangers second 5th round pick (#136) was their own pick and they used it to select Samuel Noreau from the Baie-Comeau Drakkar (QMJHL). Name brand cialis At 6-5/205, name brand cialis Noreau cuts an imposing figure on defense – especially to his opponents. Name brand cialis In 67 games, name brand cialis he scored 5 goals and 5 assists with 141 PIM. Name brand cialis The rugged defenseman was ranked 136th by ISS and 183rd NA by THN.

Name brand cialis It seems that Kyle Woodlief and his staff at RLR report have been keeping tabs on Noreau even though his team finished 17th in the 18-team league.

Name brand cialis In February 2011, name brand cialis Woodlief talked about Noreau in one of his USA Today columns.

Name brand cialis “One Quebec League player who is quietly generating some interest is Samuel Noreau. Name brand cialis He’s a huge defenseman at 6-5, name brand cialis 215 pounds, name brand cialis and one of the top fighters in the league. Name brand cialis He has OK mobility and decent skill, name brand cialis but doesn’t get many viewings on a bad Baie-Comeau club without any skilled players to watch, name brand cialis” Woodlief wrote. Name brand cialis “But Noreau could develop into a tough-as-nails #5-6 blue-liner. Name brand cialis He hasn’t broken into our top 100 yet, name brand cialis but we’d venture a guess that some team might grab him as high as the third round based on need and team philosophy.”

Name brand cialis In their 2011 Draft Preview, name brand cialis RLR listed Noreau as the 13th “Mid-round Sleepers Worth a Look” and wrote, name brand cialis “Huge, name brand cialis mean, name brand cialis raw enforcer type also plays solid defence and makes safe plays with the puck. Name brand cialis Nobody in the Q will even make eye contact with him – and wisely so.”

Name brand cialis On their official web site, name brand cialis the Rangers had the following write-up, name brand cialis “A hulking defenseman who showed ability to protect teammates in finishing second on his team in penalty minutes. Name brand cialis He also managed to contribute offense with five goals and nearly a shot on goal per game.

Name brand cialis Noreau may or may not make the NHL, name brand cialis but it could be a fun time, name brand cialis down the road, name brand cialis during exhibition games watching Noreau and Dylan McIlrath run roughshod over some opponents much like the Bash Brothers from The Mighty Ducks movies.

Name brand cialis In the past, name brand cialis I would have called Peter Ceresnak a “Christer Rockstrom special” because under Neil Smith the Rangers always managed to a way to draft a European or two in the later rounds. Name brand cialis However with Rockstrom working for Montreal, name brand cialis we might have to refer to him as a “Jan Gajdosik special.”

Name brand cialis Like St. Name brand cialis Croix and McColgan, name brand cialis Ceresnak was on the 2011 draft radar back in 2010 as ISS ranked him the 71st best prospect. Name brand cialis Entering his draft year, name brand cialis CS ranked him as the 35th best European skater, name brand cialis ISS ranked him 114th, name brand cialis and RLR ranked him at #188.

Name brand cialis Ceresnak is no stranger to international play having represented Slovakia at the WJC this year as a 17-year-old and captained Slovakia at the U-18 tournament. Name brand cialis In 23 games with Dukla Trencin’s Junior team, name brand cialis he scored 1 goal and 3 assists with 16 PIM. Name brand cialis Ceresnak was drafted by Peterborough with the 4th overall pick in the 2011 CHL Import Draft, name brand cialis

Name brand cialis Here is what the Rangers official web site said about Ceresnak, name brand cialis “Great NHL upside as two-say defenseman who has great size and understands positional play in his own zone very well. Name brand cialis Very good at shutting down opponents and not afraid to pinch into the offensive zone.”

Name brand cialis ISS: “Ceresnak has been a very interesting prospect over the past couple of seasons. Name brand cialis He has teased good two-way ability, name brand cialis but hasn’t necessarily been able to back it up consistently. Name brand cialis Ceresnak first caught the eyes of ISS scouts with his size and lane control, name brand cialis using a strong gap and an active stick to deny space and angle opposing players into more difficult situations. Name brand cialis He has a good technical skill package and can get bold at times and aggressively pinch into the offensive zone. Name brand cialis His instincts are good and there is potential for offense but he needs proper guidance.”

Cialis professional The 49th annual NHL Draft returns to the Land of 10, cialis professional000 Lakes with the Xcel Energy Center in St. Cialis professional Paul with the Minnesota Wild serving as hosts. Cialis professional The last time the NHL gathered in Minnesota the year was 1989 and the site was the Met Center in Bloomington with the Minnesota North Stars presiding as hosts of a 12-round draft that featured 21 NHL teams.

Cialis professional The Edmonton Oilers will be making the first selection for the second consecutive Draft – the first time that has happened since the Ottawa Senators did it in 1995 (Bryan Berard) and 1996 (Chris Phillips) – although a couple of teams did come close. Cialis professional In 2006, cialis professional the Chicago Blackhawks owned the third overall pick (Jonathan Toews) and the first overall pick in 2007 (Patrick Kane).

Cialis professional The Pittsburgh Penguins nearly went the Oilers one better when they made the first overall selections in 2003 (Marc-Andre Fleury) and 2005 (Sidney Crosby) and the second overall selection in 2006 (Evgeni Malkin).

Cialis professional The impact of making the first selection in consecutive drafts is not lost on Oilers GM Steve Tambellini.
“Winning this first overall pick is an important moment for the organization and it’s an integral part of the process moving forward, cialis professional” Tambellini told the Canadian Press.

Cialis professional “This is a very exciting time for our organization and our fans as this just adds to the already bright future of our team.”

Cialis professional It is obvious that Edmonton will dictate how the first round will shake out given they have the first overall pick. Cialis professional However, cialis professional considering they also own the 19th and 31st overall picks, cialis professional the Oilers are in a position to do some wheeling-and-dealing.

Cialis professional “I think it’s my responsibility to stay open to anything. Cialis professional If I feel it really helps our organization, cialis professional I’ll consider it, cialis professional” Tambellini explained to TSN.ca. Cialis professional “I’m not afraid of moving up with the 19th pick or the 31st pick, cialis professional if that’s something [chief amateur scout] Stu McGregor and his staff really feel is important. Cialis professional If they really believe in it, cialis professional then I’ll consider it.”

Cialis professional Tambellini upped the stakes in a conversation he had with Craig Custance of the Sporting News on June 9.
“I’ve had a few calls of people kicking the tires of how they can help me make the Oilers a better team, cialis professional” Edmonton’s GM admitted. Cialis professional “For me to move the No. Cialis professional 1 pick would have to be something exceptional.”

Cialis professional While Tambellini admitted to TSN.ca that this year “… there’s possibly four or five [players] that all could legitimately be the top pick, cialis professional” the consensus is that it will come down to center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and defenseman Adam Larsson.

Cialis professional While the Oilers have a few first round draft picks among their forwards corps, cialis professional the general consensus from the experts is that Edmonton will draft the center over the blueliner.

Cialis professional In a TSN.ca April Mock Draft among the 14 non-playoff teams, cialis professional former Calgary GM and current analyst Craig Button placed Nugent-Hopkins at the top of his draft board.

Cialis professional “He’ll make Taylor Hall better, cialis professional” Button said. Cialis professional “Players like Nugent-Hopkins do not come around very often. Cialis professional I think this sets up the Oilers for a great future.”

Cialis professional In this Mock Draft, cialis professional each player has ratings for the following scouting services: The Hockey News (THN), cialis professional TSN.ca (TSN), cialis professional Red Line Report (RLR), cialis professional NHL’s Central Scouting (CS), cialis professional and International Scouting Service (ISS). Cialis professional CS breaks down their ratings by North American skaters, cialis professional European skaters, cialis professional North American goaltenders and European goaltenders. Cialis professional THN lists each prospect’s NHL Translation. Cialis professional Both ISS and RLR provide a prospects’ comparable NHL player. Cialis professional TSN ranked the Top 60 players and listed 25 Honorable Mentions. Cialis professional

Cialis professional The draft positions are as of June 23 and presume that no trades will have been made since then.

Cialis professional 1. Edmonton Oilers – Ryan Nugent-Hopkins – C –
THN: # 1 (Offensive forward) —– TSN: # 1 —– CS: # 1 NA
RLR: # 1 (Pavel Datsyuk) —– ISS: # 1 (Niklas Backstrom)
The temptation will be great to go after Larsson, cialis professional but in the end the Oilers will opt for the consensus number one prospect in the Draft. Cialis professional With three picks among the top 31 picks, cialis professional Edmonton will have plenty of chances to address their blue line – with the possibility of moving up with their second pick in the first round.

Cialis professional 2. Colorado Avalanche – Adam Larsson – D –
THN: # 2 (Two-way defenseman) —– TSN: # 2 —– CS: # 1 E
RLR: # 2 (Brent Seabrook) —– ISS: # 2 (Niklas Lidstrom)
It is inevitable that Larsson would draw comparisons to fellow Swede Nicklas Lidstrom – especially when you consider his potential as a “franchise defender” – which is what ISS described as his NHL potential.

Cialis professional 3. Florida Panthers – Gabriel Landeskog – LW –
THN: # 3 (Two-way forward) —– TSN: # 4 —– CS: # 2 NA
RLR: # 2 (Brendan Shanahan) —– ISS: # 5 (Mike Richards)
This is where the Draft starts to get a bit tricky. Cialis professional Jonathan Huberdeau would be a good fit in South Florida. Cialis professional However, cialis professional Landeskog’s leadership ability should push him to the top of Florida’s list. Cialis professional THN noted that he hit an unusual exacta with Kitchener (OHL) – he was named team captain at 17 despite being an import player.

Cialis professional 4. New Jersey Devils – Jonathan Huberdeau – C –
THN: # 5 (Offensive forward) —– TSN: # 3 —– CS: # 3 NA
RLR: # 4 (Vincent Damphousse) —– ISS: # 3 (Peter Forsberg)
Lou Lamoriello could go for a blueliner, cialis professional but has been able to patch together his defense corps well enough to land a big-time offensive player. Cialis professional If Huberdeau ends up in Colorado, cialis professional then Larsson should be a Devil. Cialis professional If Larsson is gone, cialis professional then Lamoriello will go for Huberdeau.

Cialis professional 5. New York Islanders – Dougie Hamilton – D –
THN: # 10 (Two-way defenseman) —– TSN: # 6 —– CS: # 4 NA
RLR: # 5 (Alex Pietrangelo) —– ISS: # 5 (Brett Burns)
The Islanders struggles over the past few years has allowed them to start refilling their cupboards. Cialis professional Lots of offensive weapons available, cialis professional but Hamilton (6-4/193) gives the team a future partner for former first rounder Calvin de Haan.

Cialis professional 6. Ottawa Senators – Sean Couturier – C –
THN: # 4 (Offensive forward) —– TSN: # 5 —– CS: # 6 NA
RLR: # 4 (Joe Thornton) —– ISS: # 8 (Jordan Staal)
With rumors swirling that Jason Spezza could be headed out of Ottawa, cialis professional Couturier fits in perfectly as the future number one center as his size (6-4/195 should be too much to pass up. Cialis professional If the Devils take Couturier, cialis professional Ottawa will happily gobble up Huberdeau. Cialis professional The Senators will have a chance to get better in hurry as they own five picks in the first two rounds.

Cialis professional 7. Winnipeg – Ryan Strome – C –
THN: # 6 (Playmaking forward) —– TSN: # 7 —– CS: # 8 NA
RLR: # 9 (Logan Couture) —– ISS: # 7 (Martin Havlat)
New GM Kevin Cheveldayoff will have chance to put his stamp on the former Thrashers. Cialis professional Strome combines playmakers ability, cialis professional excellent hockey sense and potential goal scoring ability to help pave a new hockey era in Winnipeg

Cialis professional 8. Philadelphia Flyers – Ryan Murphy – D –
THN: # 7 (Offensive defenseman) —– TSN: # 8 —– CS: # 9 NA
RLR: # 6 (Brian Leetch) —– ISS: # 8 (P.K. Cialis professional Subban)
What Murphy lacks in size (5-11/176) and defensive play, cialis professional he more than makes up for it, cialis professional as ISS said, cialis professional as he is one of “the most elite offensive defenders to come along in recent years and he can simply dominate play with the puck.” Although the Flyers dealt away Jeff Carter and Mike Richards, cialis professional they should still look to inject some youth on defense because they covered their forward corps by bringing in Brayden Schenn, cialis professional wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek. Cialis professional

Cialis professional 9. Boston Bruins – Nathan Beaulieu – D –
THN: # 18 (Two-way defenseman) —– TSN: # 11 —– CS: # 5 NA
RLR: # 18 (Alex Goligoski) —– ISS: # 14 (Mike Green)
The Stanley Cup champions get richer. Cialis professional There has to be concern over the health of their centers due to post-concussion problems, cialis professional but the Bruins need to address their power play problems as well. Cialis professional While his calling card is his offense, cialis professional he is not lost in the defensive zone.

Cialis professional 10. Minnesota Wild – Mika Zibanejad – C –
THN: # 11 (Two-way forward) —– TSN: # 9 —– CS: # 2 E
RLR: # 14 (Brendan Morrow) —– ISS: # 7 (Jarome Iginla)
The Wild have always placed importance on taking care of the defensive zone – sometimes to the detriment of their offense. Cialis professional Zibanejad offers the opportunity to add offense and size (6-2/191) in the form of a player who is good defensively and has the ability to play wing (as he has in international play) and center (league games).

Cialis professional 11. Colorado Avalanche – Joel Armia – RW –
THN: # 15 (Goal-scoring forward) —– TSN: # 14 —– CS: # 4 E
RLR: # 20 (Tomas Vanek/James Neal) —– ISS: # 13 (Johan Franzen)
Colorado could take a long look at one of the Gibson goaltenders, cialis professional but it might be a little early to take a netminder. Cialis professional They could gamble and move down, cialis professional or they could just cash in on Armia. Cialis professional The Finnish native is a big-time goal scorer that uses skill and a power forward’s size (6-3/191). Cialis professional

Cialis professional 12. Carolina Hurricanes – Sven Bartschi – LW –
THN: # 8 (Offensive forward) —– TSN: # 16 —– CS: # 7 NA
RLR: # 27 (Patric Hornqvist) —– ISS: # 11 (Loui Eriksson)
Bartschi saw the success of fellow Swiss native Nino Niederreiter and copied it when he left home to play Juniors. Cialis professional Bartschi scored 34 goals and 51 assists with Portland (WHL) during the regular season and added 10 goals and 16 assists in 20 playoff games.

Cialis professional 13. Calgary Flames – – Duncan Siemens – D –
THN: # 12 (Two-way defenseman) —– TSN: # 13—– CS: # 10 NA
RLR: # 24 (Chris Phillips) —– ISS: # 12 (Kevin Bieksa)
The Flames need to restock an organization that has finished in the bottom third of the THN’s Future Watch issues the last four seasons. Cialis professional With Tim Erixon being traded to the Rangers, cialis professional Siemens is a solid replacement that offers size (6-3/197) and the ability to be a solid matchup d-man.

Cialis professional 14. Dallas Stars – Alexander Khokhlachev – C –
THN: # 13 (Two-way forwards) —– TSN: # 44 —– CS: # 29 NA
RLR: # 13 (Tomas Plekanec) —– ISS: # 23 (Martin Havlat)
With Brad Richards set to test the waters of UFA, cialis professional the Stars are going to need to bring in a top playmaking forward to replace him. Cialis professional Another European player who left home to play Junior hockey. Cialis professional He had a good rookie season with Windsor (67-34-452-76), cialis professional but he really picked up his game in the playoffs scoring 20 points in 18 games.

Cialis professional 15. New York Rangers – Mark McNeill – C/RW –
THN: # 16 (Power forward) —– TSN: # 19 —– CS: # 14 NA
RLR: # 16 (Brandon Dubinsky) —– ISS: # 16 (Jamie Benn)
The Rangers have done a good job in the last couple of years of injecting youth into the organization. Cialis professional The acquisition of Erixon from Calgary points to the rangers looking for an impact forward. Cialis professional McNeill’s ability to play center or wing makes him a solid fit in NYC – as does his size (6-2/204). Cialis professional

Cialis professional 16. Buffalo Sabres – Mark Scheifele – C –
THN: # 41 (Power forward) —– TSN: # 12 —– CS: # 16 NA
RLR: # 12 (Jeff Carter) —– ISS: # 18 (Dustin Brown)
Scheifele continues the Sabres recent plan of adding size (6-2/177) to their talented finesse forwards. Cialis professional His offensive numbers will improve (66-22-53-75) as he continues to mature physically and as his Barrie (OHL) team improves on its 49-loss season.

Cialis professional 17. Montreal Canadiens – Oscar Klefbom – D –
THN: # 37 (Defensive defenseman) —– TSN: # 21 —– CS: # 6 E
RLR: # 11 (Brent Burns) —– ISS: # 10 (Ryan Whitney)
The Habs will be undergoing some changes on the blueline this year as nine d-men are set to test free agency. Cialis professional Klefbom’s skating is reminiscent of the old Flying Frenchman and should play major minutes as a two-way defenseman in the NHL.

Cialis professional 18. Chicago Blackhawks – John Gibson – G –
THN: # 27 (Franchise goaltender) —– TSN: # 37 —– CS: # 1 NA-G
RLR: # 29 (Steve Mason) —– ISS: # 1 G (N/A)
For all of their success recently, cialis professional Chicago has had concerns with their goaltending. Cialis professional With two Gibsons to choose from, cialis professional the Blackhawks will go with the American version. Cialis professional John has been a mainstay with the USA U-17 and U-18 teams, cialis professional using his size (6-3/205) to his advantage. Cialis professional While he is set to attend Michigan, cialis professional Kitchener (OHL) owns his Junior rights.

Cialis professional 19. Edmonton Oilers – Christopher Gibson – G –
THN: # 29 (Starting goaltender) —– TSN: # 42 —– CS: # 2 NA-G
RLR: # 77 (Josh Harding) —– ISS: # 2 G (N/A)
The Oilers passed on a defenseman with the 1st overall pick and should do so with the 19th pick because the drop off in goaltenders is that big between the Gibsons and the rest of the field. Cialis professional Christopher Gibson was born in Finland, cialis professional but his game is all Canadian since leaving home at the age of 15 – the last two years with Chicoutimi (QMJHL).

Cialis professional 20. Phoenix Coyotes – Brandon Saad – LW –
THN: # 14 (Two-way forward) —– TSN: # 22 —– CS: # 19 NA
RLR: # 21 (R.J. Cialis professional Umberger) —– ISS: # 24 (Patrick Marleau)
While the Coyotes managed to avert a move back to Winnipeg, cialis professional ownership questions still surround the team. Cialis professional GM Don Maloney could look to go for a player who will enter college next year (e.g. Cialis professional Tyler Biggs or J.T. Cialis professional Miller). Cialis professional However, cialis professional Maloney, cialis professional who was a moving force between the Rangers drafting Hugh Jessiman in 2003, cialis professional will draft the 6-1/208 LW. Cialis professional Saad has all of the components to be a big-time player, cialis professional it is just a matter of him harnessing and developing his tools.

Cialis professional 21. Ottawa Senators – Nicklas Jensen – RW –
THN: # 19 (Power forward) —– TSN: # 24 —– CS: # 21 NA
RLR: # 22 (Patrick Marleau) —– ISS: # 22 (Ryan Kessler)
Ottawa continues its stockpiling of offensive talents with the left shooting RW who is another player who has Top-10 skills, cialis professional but needs to find a consistency to his intensity. Cialis professional Jensen is yet another European player who crossed the Atlantic to further his career, cialis professional playing for Oshawa (OHL) and scored 29 goals and 29 assists in 61 games.

Cialis professional 22. Anaheim Ducks – Jamie Oleksiak – D –
THN: # 17 (Defensive defenseman) —– TSN: # 17 —– CS: # 13 NA
RLR: # 28 (Mobile version of Hal Gill) —– ISS: # 16 (Tyler Myers)
While the Ducks need to address some aging issues among the forwards, cialis professional the success of the likes of Chara and Myers make Oleksiak (6-7/244) too good to pass up – even if the Ducks have not always placed a premium on size.

Cialis professional 23. Pittsburgh Penguins – J.T. Cialis professional Miller – LW –
THN: # 59 (Checking-line forward) —– TSN: # 18 —– CS: # 23 NA
RLR: # 9 (Erik Cole) —– ISS: # 17 (Drew Stafford)
Solid two-way player who has been a member of the USA U-17 and U-18 teams. Cialis professional Miller has committed to North Dakota, cialis professional but THN thinks his drafting team will push him to play with Plymouth (OHL). Cialis professional Miller is a fine complementary player for a Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin.

Cialis professional 24. Detroit Red Wings – Tyler Biggs – RW –
THN: # 20 (power forward) —– TSN: # 15 —– CS: # 22 NA
RLR: # 23 (Chris Neill) —– ISS: # 31 (Keith Tkachuk)
With Nicklas Lidstrom coming back for a 20th season, cialis professional the pressure/need to look for a replacement lessens enough for Detroit to bring in Biggs – whose father Don Biggs played 12 NHL games while making a name for himself as a minor league scoring machine. Cialis professional Unlike dear old dad (5-8), cialis professional Tyler (6-2/210) is your prototypical power forward who has made his way up through the USNTDP. Cialis professional He has the potential to be a top six forward, cialis professional but will definitely stick as a third line forward at the least. Cialis professional

Cialis professional 25. Toronto Maple Leafs – Jonas Brodin – D –
THN: # 22 (Two-way defenseman) —– TSN: # 10 —– CS: # 3 E
RLR: # 26 (Brad Stuart) —– ISS: # 20 (Kris Letang)
GM Brian Burke will not be happy to see Biggs off the board at #25. Cialis professional If he gets a whiff of Detroit taking him, cialis professional Burke might think of trading ahead of the Red Wings. Cialis professional If the Leafs don’t move up, cialis professional Brodin is a nice consolation prize as he is a good two-way d-man who will help run both special teams. Cialis professional

Cialis professional 26. Washington Capitals – Matt Puempel – LW –
THN: # 21 (Goal-scoring forward) —– TSN: # 27 —– CS: # 28 NA
RLR: # 15 (Patrick Sharp) —– ISS: # 29 (Patrick Sharp)
The Capitals should look for some secondary scoring to help support Alexander Ovechkin. Cialis professional Scored 33 goals in 55 games in a season cut short by a hip injury that should not limit his progress. Cialis professional Not only does Puempel bring scoring, cialis professional he will also bring leadership.

Cialis professional 27. Tampa Bay Lightning – Connor Murphy – D –
THN: # 55 (Two-way defenseman) —– TSN: # 30 —– CS: # 25 NA
RLR: # 41 (Ryan Whitney) —– ISS: # 19 (Alex Edler)
The son of former NHLer Gord Murphy has battled a stress fracture of a lower vertebra for the last two seasons. Cialis professional However, cialis professional his size (6-3/185) and emerging offensive game make him a fine complement to Victor Hedman.

Cialis professional 28. San Jose Sharks – Scott Mayfield – D –
THN: # 24 (Smooth-skating defenseman) —– TSN: # 46 —– CS: # 24 NA
RLR: # 35 (Ryan O’Byrne) —– ISS: # 32 (Victor Hedman)
The Victor Hedman comparisons fit given Mayfield’s size (6-4/197), cialis professional skating ability and physicality. Cialis professional Mayfield still needs to develop his game and should do that as he heads to the University of Denver.

Cialis professional 29. Vancouver Canucks – Zack Phillips – C –
THN: # 9 (Goal-scoring forward) —– TSN: # 28 —– CS: # 15 NA
RLR: # 34 (Antoine Vermette) —– ISS: # 34 (Mike Ribeiro)
It is easy to overlook Phillips because of the exposure of his teammate Jonathan Huberdeau. Cialis professional Zack has all of the tools needed to be a big-time playmaker: great hands, cialis professional ice vision and hockey sense. Cialis professional The one drawback to his game is his average skating.

Cialis professional 30. Toronto Maple Leafs – Rocco Grimaldi – C –
THN: # 32 (Goal scoring forward) —– TSN: # 23 —– CS: # 32 NA
RLR: # 10 (Theo Fleury) —– ISS: # 15 (Martin St. Cialis professional Louis)
Brian Burke needs to make a big splash with his two first round draft picks and Grimaldi gives him that chance. Cialis professional The only thing that prevented Grimaldi from being the first player drafted is his size (5-6/163). Cialis professional The future Fighting Sioux of North Dakota does not let his small stature prevent him from adding a feisty style of play to his big-time scoring ability.

Cialis professional First Round Draft Pick Transactions

Cialis professional 1. The Toronto Maple Leafs’ 1st round pick goes to the Boston Bruins as a result of the September 18, cialis professional 2009 trade that sent Phil Kessel to Toronto in exchange for 1st round picks in 2010 and 2011 and a 2010 2nd round pick.

The St. Cialis professional Louis Blues’ 1st round pick goes to the Colorado Avalanche as a result of the February 19, cialis professional 2011 trade that sent Kevin Shattenkirk, cialis professional Chris Stewart and a conditional 2nd round pick to St. Cialis professional Louis in exchange for Erik Johnson, cialis professional Jay McClement and a conditional 2011 2st round pick.

3. The Los Angeles Kings’ 1st round pick goes to the Edmonton Oilers as a result of the February 28, cialis professional 2011 trade that sent Dustin Penner to Los Angeles in exchange for Colten Teubert, cialis professional a 2011 1st round pick and a conditional 3rd round pick in 2012.

Viagra sample While there is a lot of hoopla and fanfare over the first round of the NHL Drafts, viagra sample teams can make or break their future on the second day of the draft. Viagra sample

Viagra sample NHL teams will be attempting to duplicate the success the Detroit Red Wings had in 1989 when they drafted four players who have played over 1000 NHL games: 1st rounder Mike Sillinger (1049), viagra sample 3rd rounder Nicklas Lidstrom (1494 and counting), viagra sample 4th rounder Sergei Federov (1248), viagra sample and 6th rounder Dallas Drake (1009). Viagra sample In addition, viagra sample the Red Wings also drafted 2nd rounder Bob Boughner (630) and 11th rounder Vladimir Konstantinov (446 in a career cut short by a tragic limousine accident while out celebrating Detroit’s Stanley Cup victory).

Viagra sample In this Mock Draft, viagra sample each player has ratings for the following scouting services: The Hockey News (THN), viagra sample TSN.ca (TSN), viagra sample Red Line Report (RLR), viagra sample NHL’s Central Scouting (CS), viagra sample and International Scouting Service (ISS). Viagra sample CS breaks down their ratings by North American skaters, viagra sample European skaters, viagra sample North American goaltenders and European goaltenders. Viagra sample THN lists each prospect’s NHL Translation. Viagra sample Both ISS and RLR provide a prospects’ comparable NHL player. Viagra sample TSN ranked the Top 60 players and listed 25 Honorable Mentions. Viagra sample

Viagra sample The draft positions are as of June 23 and presume that no trades will have been made since then.

Viagra sample 31. Viagra sample Edmonton Oilers – Joe Morrow – D –
THN: # 34 (Two-way defenseman) —– TSN: # 20 —– CS: # 12 NA
RLR: # 30 (Dennis Seidenberg) —– ISS: # 33 (Grant Clitsome)
The Oilers finish off their trifecta in the first two rounds by adding the swift skating d-man who has a nice physical edge to his game. Viagra sample Morrow will see ice time as a second pair blueliner and see time on the PP.

Viagra sample 32. Viagra sample St. Viagra sample Louis Blues – Ty Rattie – LW –
THN: # 33 (Offensive forward) —– TSN: # 25 —– CS: # 17 NA
RLR: # 19 (Jason Pominville) —– ISS: # 28 (Ray Whitney)
Rattie doubled his point total from his first WHL season (37) to his second season (79). Viagra sample He is a natural scorer who projects out as a first/second liner, viagra sample but he does have some work to do on strengthening his skating.

Viagra sample 33. Viagra sample Florida Panthers – David Musil – D –
THN: # 23 (Defensive defenseman) —– TSN: # 41 —– CS: # 38 NA
RLR: # 17 (Robyn Regehr) —– ISS: # 27 (Kevin Lowe)
Musil has NHL DNA in his genes thanks to father Frank and uncle Bobby Holik. Viagra sample He projects out as a defensive d-man in the NHL who uses his size (6-4/200) well. Viagra sample If Musil’s skating was better and if he had a little more offense, viagra sample Musil would have been a first round pick.

Viagra sample 34. Viagra sample New York Islanders – Mario Lucia – LW –
THN: # 26 (Two-way forward) —– TSN: # 45 —– CS: # 34 NA
RLR: # 42 (Derek Stepan) —– ISS: # 46 (Derek Stepan)
Lucia’s father is Don Lucia, viagra sample head coach at the University of Minnesota. Viagra sample Lucia (6-2/185) has the ability to range from being a solid two-way forward all the way up to a top-six goal scoring winger.

Viagra sample 35. Viagra sample Ottawa Senators – Tomas Jurco – RW –
THN: # 28 (Skilled forward) —– TSN: # 29 —– CS: # 20 NA
RLR: # 38 (Michael Ryder) —– ISS: # 25 (Milan Hejduk)
Jurco is a borderline 1st round pick whose big knock is for playing on the perimeter. Viagra sample Outside of that, viagra sample he has all of the tools to be a top-six forward – as seen during the CHL’S Top Prospects Skills Competition. Viagra sample One concern is that he followed up his 51-point rookie season with a sophomore season of 56 points. Viagra sample Jurco has been a member of Slovakia’s U-18 team in 2008/2009 and their WJC team in 2010/2011

Viagra sample 36. Viagra sample Chicago Blackhawks – Dmitri Jaskin – RW –
THN: # 30 (Power forward) —– TSN: # 35 —– CS: # 5 E
RLR: # 33 (Guillaume Latendresse) —– ISS: # 40 (David Backes)
Jaskin (6-2/196) needs to address skating issues. Viagra sample He has shown an ability to play above his age level with 33 games in the Czech Elite League as an 18-year-old. Viagra sample TSN calls his upside as a less-skilled Bobby Ryan.

Viagra sample 37. Viagra sample Columbus Blue Jackets – Vladimir Namestnikov – C –
THN: # 36 (Offensive forward) —– TSN: # 31 —– CS: # 11 E
RLR: # 25 (Bryan Little) —– ISS: # 37 (Nikolai Kulemin)
Vladimir is the son of a former NHL defenseman John Namestnikov. Viagra sample The slightly built center (6-0/170) center made an impact in his first year in the OHL with 68 points. Viagra sample Namestnikov’s game is built on his skating and playmaking abilities. Viagra sample If he can add some muscle, viagra sample he projects out to a top-six forward. Viagra sample It would not be a surprise to see Namestnikov find his way into the 1st round.

Viagra sample 38. Viagra sample Nashville Predators – Boone Jenner – C –
THN: # 40 (Third-line center) —– TSN: # 26 —– CS: # 18 NA
RLR: # 32 (Ryan O’Reilly) —– ISS: # 38 (Mike Peca)
Jenner is the solid two-way forward that Nashville has built their organization on during the years. Viagra sample If his skating skills were stronger, viagra sample he could easily project out as a second line center. Viagra sample His size (6-1/194), viagra sample leadership ability and strong hockey sense will make him a perfect fit for the Predators.

Viagra sample 39. Viagra sample Toronto Maple Leafs – Adam Clendening – D –
THN: # 49 (offensive defenseman) —– TSN: # 49 —– CS: # 45 NA
RLR: # 39 (Keith Ballard) —– ISS: # 35 (Brian Rafalski)
The two-time USA U-18 gold medalist might be a first round pick he were bigger than his 5-11/170 frame, viagra sample and if his skating was better. Viagra sample With that said, viagra sample he might be one the best PP quarterbacks in the Draft thanks to his ice vision and excellent hockey sense.

Viagra sample 40. Viagra sample Boston Bruins – Matthew Nieto – LW –
THN: # 42 (Two-way forward) —– TSN: # 53 —– CS: # 43 NA
RLR: # 52 (Chris Kelly) —– ISS: # 56 (Alexander Radulov)
Given his slight stature (5-11/170), viagra sample it is good thing that Nieto’s best attribute is his skating ability, viagra sample speed and puck handling capabilities. Viagra sample Nieto has represented the USA as a member of the U-17 and U-18 teams before playing his freshman season at Boston University last season.

Viagra sample 41. Viagra sample St. Viagra sample Louis Blues – Shane Prince – LW –
THN: # 52 (Offensive forward) —– TSN: # 43 —– CS: # 26 NA
RLR: # 31 (Ryan Callahan) —– ISS: # 72 (N/A)
Prince plays bigger than his size (5-10/181) indicates – which can be a detriment as seen by a bad shoulder and a concussion at the end of the season. Viagra sample He improved his production from 30 points in his first OHL season to 88 last year with Ottawa.

Viagra sample 42. Viagra sample Carolina Hurricanes – Philip Danault – C/LW –
THN: # 31 (Character forward) —– TSN: # 39 —– CS: # 27 NA
RLR: # 51 (Valtteri Filppula) —– ISS: # 39 (Alex Burrows)
Danault is much more adept at center as opposed to playing on the wing. Viagra sample In either case, viagra sample he rates high in hockey sense, viagra sample work ethic and competitiveness – allowing him to be an effective special teams player. Viagra sample He is a solid two-way player scoring 67 points in 64 GP with Victoriaville (QMJHL) and then stepped up in the playoffs (15 points in 9 GP).

Viagra sample 43. Viagra sample Chicago Blackhawks – Robbie Russo – D –
THN: # 50 (Offensive defenseman) —– TSN: # HM —– CS: # 55 NA
RLR: #87 (Chris Campoli) —– ISS: # 36 (Matt Niskanen)
The Westmont, viagra sample IL native captained the USA U-18 and led the d-men in scoring with 23 points in 52 GP. Viagra sample He will get drafted on his offensive ability, viagra sample but should gain on the defensive side during his collegiate career at the University of Notre Dame.

Viagra sample 44. Viagra sample Dallas Stars – Joel Edmundson – D –
THN: # N/R (N/A) —– TSN: # 47 —– CS: # 33 NA
RLR: # 86 (Cody Franson) —– ISS: # 47 (John Erskine)
The 6-4/181 Edmundson has a long way to go before he fills out his frame. Viagra sample While he is still a work-in-progress, viagra sample Edmundson is pretty decent skater for someone his size which, viagra sample when combined with his wingspan, viagra sample makes him a tough defender to play against. Viagra sample He will make the NHL as a third pair d-man, viagra sample but could very easily step up if his physical and hockey maturity continue.

Viagra sample 45. Viagra sample Calgary Flames – Stuart Percy – D –
THN: # 70 (N/A) —– TSN: # 34 —– CS: # 53 NA
RLR: # 56 (Toni Lydman) —– ISS: # 50 (Andrej Mezsaros)
Percy doesn’t stand out in any one area and is a steady blueliner. Viagra sample He sets himself apart because of his hockey sense, viagra sample his ability to see the ice and read the play, viagra sample and his leadership abilities. Viagra sample Percy will see time on both special teams.

Viagra sample 46. Viagra sample St. Viagra sample Louis Blues – Daniel Catenacci – C –
THN: # 35 (Smooth-skating forward) —– TSN: # 50 —– CS: # 37 NA
RLR: # 46 (Rico Fata) —– ISS: # 51 (Steve Ott)
At 5-9/176, viagra sample Catenacci is another one of the draft-eligible players who makes his name based on his skating ability – and he might be the fastest available in 2011. Viagra sample He was the fastest skater during the CHL Top Prospects Skills Competition. Viagra sample Despite playing for a weak Sault Ste. Viagra sample Marie team, viagra sample Catenacci led his team in points (71) while gaining experience on Canada’s U-18 team.

Viagra sample 47. Viagra sample Florida Panthers – Viktor Rask – C –
THN: # 54 (Skilled forward) —– TSN: # 40 —– CS: # 53 NA
RLR: # 47 (Scott Gomez) —– ISS: # 26 (Anze Kopitar)
Rask (6-2/194) started the season as the #5 player ranked by ISS in October 2010, viagra sample but never progressed. Viagra sample That might have something to do with playing in the Swedish Elite League at the age of 18. Viagra sample It could also have to do with penchant for trying to do too much with the puck and his inconsistency. Viagra sample All of that aside, viagra sample he still has all of the tools that made him a pre-season top prospect at is worth the second round risk.

Viagra sample 48. Viagra sample Ottawa Senators – Ryan Sproul – D –
THN: # N/R (N/A) —– TSN: # 48 —– CS: # 54 NA
RLR: # 67 (Alex Edler) —– ISS: # 60 (Ed Jovanovski)
The 6-3/175 Sproul scored 14 goals for Sault Ste. Viagra sample Marie this season thanks to a booming slapshot from the point. Viagra sample Sproul still needs work on learning the game – especially the defensive side. Viagra sample While he is not as physical as he should be, viagra sample that should come in time as he matures physically.

Viagra sample 49. Viagra sample Los Angeles Kings – Nikita Kucherov – RW –
THN: # 95 (N/A) —– TSN: # 56 —– CS: # 17 E
RLR: # 90 (Sergei Kostitsyn) —– ISS: # 58 (Alexander Semin)
Scored at a Hall-of-Fame pace in the World U-18 racking up an impressive 11 goals and 10 assists in 7 games. Viagra sample Kings are not shy about drafting Russians despite the lack of a transfer agreement. Viagra sample Needs a lot of work on defense and physical aspect, viagra sample but there is no denying his offensive flair.

Viagra sample 50. Viagra sample New York Islanders – Seth Ambroz – RW –
THN: # 48 (Power forward) —– TSN: # HM —– CS: # 31 NA
RLR: # 71 (Andrew Brunette minus the desire) —– ISS: # 57 (Bryan Bickell)
THN pointed out that academic problems might keep Ambroz from moving from the USHL to the University of Minnesota. Viagra sample There is a concern that his development grew stagnant after three years in the USHL: (where he started as a 15-year-old). Viagra sample He does need to improve his skating and puck skills, viagra sample but there is no denying that at 6-2/211 he already has an NHL body. Viagra sample One scout told the THN, viagra sample “Let’s call him a good Hugh Jessiman”. Viagra sample He is still worth a shot in the 2nd round with the Isles 2nd pick of the round.

51. Viagra sample Phoenix Coyotes – Nick Shore – C/RW –

THN: # 38 (Checking-line forward) —– TSN: # 54 —– CS: # 56 NA
RLR: # 69 (Jay McClement) —– ISS: # 43 (Patrick Eaves)
The Denver native played for his hometown school, viagra sample the University of Denver where he teamed up with his brother Drew (2009 Florida 2nd rounder). Viagra sample The two-way center competes hard every night and is well versed when it comes to hockey sense. Viagra sample Nick is more of a playmaker than natural scorer. Viagra sample He was a member of the USA U-18 gold medal team this team – scoring 3 goals and 7 assists in 7 GP.

Viagra sample 52. Viagra sample Nashville Predators – Richard Rakell – RW –
THN: # 25 (Two-way forward) —– TSN: # 32 —– CS: # 30 NA
RLR: # 37 (Rich Peverley) —– ISS: # 41(Justin Williams)
Rakell is another prototypical two-way player that will thrive under Barry Trotz’s system. Viagra sample The youngster was the only player born in 1993 that made Sweden’s WJC team. Viagra sample Rakell is also another European player who chose to further his career in Canadian Juniors. Viagra sample He was on pace for a fine rookie season offensively before a high ankle sprain limited him to 49 GP and 19 goals and 24 assists. Viagra sample

Viagra sample 53. Viagra sample Anaheim Ducks – Brett Ritchie – RW –
THN: # 58 (Power forward) —– TSN: # 36—– CS: # 36 NA
RLR: # 59 (Dustin Penner – smaller version) —– ISS: # 30 (Ryan Clowe)
Injuries and bout with mono limited Ritchie to just 49 GP with Sarnia where he scored 21 goals and 20 assists in his second year in the OHL. Viagra sample While Ritchie has power forward size
(6-3/210), viagra sample he needs to be more physical if he wants to take the next step to the NHL. Viagra sample He has good hands and is very solid around the net so the potential is there.

Viagra sample 54. Viagra sample Pittsburgh Penguins – Stefan Noesen – C/RW –
THN: # 39 (skilled forward) —– TSN: # 33 —– CS: # 35 NA
RLR: # 36 (Jamie Benn) —– ISS: # 49 (Colin Wilson)
The Plano, viagra sample TX native opened many eyes with his huge development from his rookie OHL season (33-3-5-8) to last year (68-34-43-77). Viagra sample The 6-0/190 forward still needs to work on his skating and improving in his defensive zone, viagra sample but projects out as a solid second-line player if he continues his development

Viagra sample 55. Viagra sample Detroit Red Wings – Rasmus Bengsston – D –
THN: # 51 (Defensive defenseman) —– TSN: # HM —– CS: # 10 E
RLR: # 94 (Sami Lepisto) —– ISS: # 52 (Fedor Tyutin)
The Red Wings and Swedish d-men almost seem to go hand-in-hand. Viagra sample However, viagra sample any comparison to Nicklas Lidstrom would not be fair to Rasmus. Viagra sample Bengsston is a defensive d-man who uses his size (6-3/189) well. Viagra sample While not an offensive player, viagra sample Rasmus carries a very hard shot from the point – one of the best among the Draft prospects. Viagra sample Bengsston has represented Sweden as a member of their U-17 and U-18 teams.

Viagra sample 56. Viagra sample Phoenix Coyotes – Michael St. Viagra sample Croix – C/RW –
THN: # 46 (Offensive forward) — TSN: # N/R —– CS: # 59 NA
RLR: # 63 (Radim Vrbata) —– ISS: # 64 (N/A)
St. Viagra sample Croix’s dad, viagra sample Rick, viagra sample was a goaltender in the NHL. Viagra sample His son is a bane to goalies who uses his skating ability, viagra sample puck handling and hockey sense to key his offensive game. Viagra sample At 5-11/176, viagra sample St. Viagra sample Croix needs to add some muscle and work on his play on the defensive side of the puck. Viagra sample He has the major offensive skills to be a boom, viagra sample but he also has the inconsistency to be a bust.

Viagra sample 57. Viagra sample Calgary Flames – Marcel Noebels – C –
THN: # 53 (Goal scoring forward) —– TSN: # N/R —– CS: # 43 NA
RLR: # 83 (Jochen Hecht) —– ISS: # 78 (N/A)
There are 30 GMs who wished they didn’t pass up the German-born center in last year’s draft. Viagra sample He crossed the Atlantic to play with Seattle (WHL) and saw his stock rise with 28 goals and 26 assists in 66 games. Viagra sample Has NHL sixe (6-3/195), viagra sample but must work on his skating to take that next step.

Viagra sample 58. Viagra sample Tampa Bay Lightning – Michael Paliotta – D –
THN: # 82 (N/A) — TSN: # N/R —–CS: # 86 NA
RLR: # 62 (Roman Polak) —– ISS: 63 (N/A)
Paliotta has been a member of the USNTDP for the last two seasons and is set to continue his career at the University of Vermont. Viagra sample The 6-3/200 blueliner uses his size well and plays an aggressive physical game. Viagra sample He is a pretty good skater for a player his size which helps his defensive play. Viagra sample He plays a simple offensive game now, viagra sample but might add to it as he grows his game.

Viagra sample 59. Viagra sample San Jose Sharks – Miikka Salomaki – LW –
THN: # 79 —– TSN: # HM —– CS: # 7 E
RLR: # 53 (Cal Clutterbuck – but less dirty) —– ISS: # 44 (Maxime Talbot)
I am surprised that the name Esa Tikkanen was not mentioned in reference to fellow Finn Salomaki given his ability to agitate. Viagra sample He is an intense player who does not take any shifts off. Viagra sample While he won’t duplicate Tikkanen’s offense ability, viagra sample he is a solid defender who can provide some offense. Viagra sample Played in Finland’s top league as an 18-year-old and scored 4 goals and 6 assists in 40GP.

Viagra sample 60. Viagra sample Vancouver Canucks – Reece Scarlett – D –
THN: # 57 (Playmaking defenseman) —– TSN: # N/A —– CS: # 57 NA
RLR: # 60 (Josh Gorges) —– ISS: # 91 (N/A)
At 6-1/170, viagra sample Scarlett has room to add much-needed muscle and bulk. Viagra sample Reece is a good skater whose passing ability and strong hockey sense keys his offensive game. Viagra sample He has the potential to be a PP quarterback in the NHL.

Viagra sample 61. Viagra sample Ottawa Senators – Michael Mersch – LW –
THN: # 71 (N/A) —– TSN: # HM —– CS: # 83 NA
RLR: # 50 (Ryan Malone) —– ISS: # 108 (N/A)
After spending three years with the USNTDP, viagra sample the 6-2/198 Mersch played his freshman season at the University of Wisconsin. Viagra sample He is a strong two-way winger who uses his size to his advantage and has good hockey sense. Viagra sample The one thing that has kept Mersch back is his skating which could be the difference between him being a potential first draft pick as opposed to a second/third line draft pick.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Since the New York Rangers traded away their two second round draft picks in the deal to acquire Tim Erixon, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage President/GM Glen Sather and his staff will have little margin of error when it comes to their first round selection (#15) in the 2011 NHL Draft. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Given the acquisition of Erixon, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage it is a pretty good bet that the name that Commissioner Gary Bettman will be that of a forward.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Prior to the Erixon deal with Calgary, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage I expected the Ranges to be very active on the trade front come draft day. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage If the Rangers still had their two second round picks (their own at #45 and Washington’s at #57 via Carolina from the Bobby Sanguinetti trade), viagra canadian pharmacy dosage I fully expected the Blueshirts to take a page out of their 1959-1960 radio color analyst Monty Hall’s playbook and play “Let’s Make a Deal”.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage The possibilities were numerous. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage The Rangers could have looked to move up and take a shot at a Gabriel Landeskog, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Sean Couturier or Jonathan Huberdeau. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage If that were out of the realm of possibility, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage the Rangers could have moved the second round picks and look to move into the bottom of the first round if there were a player who intrigued them.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage At the very least, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Sather could have moved one of the second round picks in an attempt to fill is the holes in the Rangers draft board because they do not have draft picks in the 3rd round (sent to Florida in the Bryan McCabe deal), viagra canadian pharmacy dosage 6th round (sent to San Jose as a conditional draft pick in the Jody Shelley deal) and the 7th round (sent to Phoenix along with Miika Wiikman in the Anders Eriksson deal).

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage As things stand, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage the Rangers will have three picks in addition to the 15th overall selection: their own pick in the 4th round (#106), viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Calgary’s 5th round pick (#134) acquired in the Erixon deal and their own 5th round pick (#136).

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Without second or third round draft picks do the Rangers go the safe route or do they do they throw caution to the wind and go high-risk/high-reward with the 15th overall pick?

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage I have six players in mind for the 15th selection. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage I am going to break up the Rangers 1st Round Draft Preview in three parts. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage The first part contains the “safe picks” and the second part will preview the high-risk/high-reward players and contain my plan for the first round. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage The third part will include the Final Verdict on who I would draft with the Blueshirts’ first round selection.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Each player has ratings for the following scouting services: The Hockey News (THN), viagra canadian pharmacy dosage TSN.ca (TSN), viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Red Line Report (RLR), viagra canadian pharmacy dosage NHL’s Central Scouting (CS), viagra canadian pharmacy dosage and International Scouting Service (ISS). Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage CS breaks down their ratings by North American skaters, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage European skaters, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage North American goaltenders and European goaltenders. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage THN lists each prospect’s NHL Translation. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Both ISS and RLR provide a prospects’ comparable NHL player.
TSN ranked the Top 60 players and listed 25 Honorable Mentions. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage NICKLAS JENSEN – RW –
THN: # 19 (Power forward) —– TSN: # 24 —– CS: # 21 NA
RLR: # 22 (Patrick Marleau) —– ISS: # 22 (Ryan Kessler)

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage The 6-foot-2 and 188 pound Jensen helped his draft stature by deciding to leave Denmark to play Junior hockey in Oshawa (OHL). Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage After a slow start, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Jensen found his North American game and posted 29 goals and 29 assists in 61 games. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage His improved play emerged in the OHL playoffs as scored 7 goals and 4 assists in 10 games. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage The Herning, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Denmark native represented his country in the World Junior Championships (WJC) and scored 2 goals and 3 assists in 5 games. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Both ISS and RLR believe his has the skill level to be a top six forward although RLR cautions that he needs to pick up his intensity level and his play off the puck.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage THN: One scout told THN, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “He’s a big winger who has talent. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage He’s a power forward type of player and can shoot the puck.” Another scout expanded on RLR’s caution, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “The grit thing is really not there. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage But he’s a skill guy who can make plays. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Look at Michael Grabner. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage He’s on his third team and now he’s a 30-goal scorer.”

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage RLR: “Based on pure size/skills combination alone, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage he’s a top 12 pick. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Has a long way to go with regard to work ethic, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage though. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage But when he dials up the intensity, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage watch out! Can be a gamebreaker with a great release on a wicked wrister. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Creates time and space for himself with great puckhandling ability.”

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage CS: Chris Edwards reports that, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “Nicklas has adjusted very well to the OHL. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage His puck-handling and play-making ability are excellent. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage He has an excellent wrist shot that he gets off quickly”.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage ISS: “He is showing a lot more quickness and speed and has always shown a real understanding of the game….He shows no hesitation playing in all of the tough and ugly areas of the ice and is very effective in the high traffic areas while showing a willingness to take a hit to make a play.”

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage MARK MCNEILL – C –
THN: # 16 (Power forward) —– TSN: # 19 —– CS: # 14 NA
RLR: # 16 (Brandon Dubinsky) —– ISS: # 16 (Jamie Benn)

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage The key to selecting the Edmonton center has nothing to do with his ability to be solid on faceoffs – it is just a little icing on the cake. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage What spurred my interest is something that THN mentioned – that he played RW last season. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage At 6-foot-2 and 201 pounds, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage McNeill would give the Rangers a power forward with versatility. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage They could use him at center or perhaps play him on RW with Chris Kreider and Derek Stepan.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage An additional attractive feature to McNeill’s game was that his Junior team used the rookie on the point on the power play. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage In 70 games with Prince Albert (WHL), viagra canadian pharmacy dosage McNeill scored 32 goals and recorded 49 assists.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Still not sold? Well, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage there is one more facet to his game that brings intrigue to the Blueshirts.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “Fighting is definitely part of the game, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage” McNeill told Alan Bass of NHL.com in a January 17, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage 2011 article. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “When it comes down to it and you need a momentum swing or you need to step up for your teammate, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “I’m definitely ready to go.”

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage THN: A scout told THN, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “He’s developed a very versatile game as a power forward. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage He plays well on the perimeter, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage but also goes to the net well.” THN also wrote, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “Scouts see a player similar to Bobby Ryan.”

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage RLR: “Shows good positioning at both ends of the ice and always makes himself available as an outlet for teammates. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Uses his size to establish and hold position around the slot, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage but we’d like to see him initiate contact more often and play a more aggressive game. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Great offensive zone awareness along with very good creativity and soft hands for a big man. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Effective on both special teams.”

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage CS: Blair MacDonald said, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “One thing I like about him is that he’s a right-handed center, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage which is good to have. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage He’s really composed and has a real pro-style game. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage He has a nice touch, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage can dish, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage and has nice, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage soft passes. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage His on-ice awareness is very good and he’s paid attention to detail at both ends of the rink. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage He has good defensive-zone coverage as well as being offensive at the other end. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage All around I think he’s got a real solid game I think his offensive game will improve the older he gets and the more confident he gets. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage I think he’ll be a better offensive player than he’s showing right now. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage He’s good at both ends of the rink. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage He comes down low and helps out defensively.”

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage ISS: “A very smart and hard working kid, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage McNeill is a great team player who does whatever is asked of him with pride and determination. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage McNeill can be relied on in every situation and was often used to kill two-man disadvantages with Canada’s U-18 team at the U-18 WJC….Emerging power forward skills and versatile and intelligent two-way ability, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage McNeill fits a variety of roles.”

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage MATTHEW PUEMPEL – LW –
THN: # 21 (Goal-scoring forward) —– TSN: # 27 —– CS: # 28 NA
RLR: # 15 (Patrick Sharp) —– ISS: # 29 (Patrick Sharp)

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Of the so-called “safe picks”, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Puempel represents the biggest “risk”. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Part of that is his fault and part of it is just pure bad luck. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage After being named the OHL and CHL Rookie of the Year, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage the 6-foot-0 and 196 pound Puempel was primed to live up reputation. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage In a 2011 “Sneak Peak” column in their 2010 Draft Preview, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage THN listed him as the 6th best prospect for the 2011 Draft. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage A scout said, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “His hockey I.Q. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage is off the charts…unbelievable touch around the net, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage very creative.” ISS had him rated as the 12th best prospect in 2010 when they were previewing the 2011 Draft. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage For the record, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage they had Jensen at #22 and did not rank McNeill in their Top 100 – although they did have a brief write-up on him.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage The own doing part stems from Essex, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Ontario native’s inability to shake in consistent play early in the season. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage The bad luck part came from playing with a Peterborough team that ended up with the second worst record in the OHL. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage The really bad break came in late February when he season ended to remove a bone spur in his hip, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage a torn labrum and a bone chip.
On the plus side, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage his surgeon was Dr. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Marc Philipon who has worked on the likes of Marian Gaborik, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Mario Lemieux and Alex Rodriguez. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage While Puempel is expected to make a full recovery, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage one still has to wonder what the long-range ramifications are from such an injury.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Puempel, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage who did not workout at the NHL Combine but went armed with his medical records, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage downplays the severity of the injury.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “It’s pretty common, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage” Puempel told Jim Parker of the Windsor Star in a May 31 article. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “I had a bone spur on the hip, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage I fell on (the) labrum and tore it. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage The chip bone they found when they went in.”

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Despite the inconsistent play and season-ending injury, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Puempel set career highs in goals (34) and assists (35) after scoring 33 goals and 31 assists in 59 games in his first OHL season.

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage THN: One scout said, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “Unfortunately, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage he’s going to have to pay the freight for having been injured and being on a bad team. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Going into this year, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage he would have been a consensus top-10 guy. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Maybe somebody is going to on what they remember.”

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage RLR: “Smart and highly instinctive offensive player. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Sees the ice very well and can create opportunities for linemates, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage but his real calling card is as a top-notch sniper down low. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Great shot release and hand/eye coordination on deflections. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Not a blazing skater, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage but always gets there when there’s a chance involved. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Must bring a higher effort level on a more consistent basis. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage Solid defensively and on the PK when he’s working hard.”

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage CS: Chris Edwards said, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage “He is dangerous with the puck and has an excellent shot, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage he has the ability to make highly skilled passes through traffic and can make his linemates better. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage His goals are skilled goals. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage He goes to the net and he battles. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage He’s not shy about getting involved in traffic and going to the net.”

Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage ISS: “Pure goal scorers are a highly sought after commodity come draft day, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage and Puempel may just be the best sniper in this draft….He is at his best in the offensive zone, viagra canadian pharmacy dosage especially below the faceoff circles. Viagra canadian pharmacy dosage He has tremendous offensive instincts and is tenacious in offensive situations.”

Viagra brand Before we can look ahead to our next three potential prospects – the so-called high-risk/high-reward players, viagra brand we must take a look back to the 2003 NHL Draft. Viagra brand Yes, viagra brand that is the Hugh Jessiman draft. Viagra brand Why are we bothering to review that draft? We are reviewing it because there are similarities between that draft and the next three candidates on my draft board.

Viagra brand Don Maloney became enamored with drafting Jessiman as the prototypical power forward NHL player who had the added bonus of being a Tri-State native (born in NYC and raised in Connecticut) that would some local spice to his selection. Viagra brand With the NHL coming out of the lockout, viagra brand a combination the layout of the NHL changing and the Rangers over-evaluation of Jessiman led to a draft mistake that still haunts the Blueshirts to this day.

Viagra brand The Rangers passed over a plethora of forwards (including six future All-Stars) who would have gone a long way to solving the team’s offensive woes. Viagra brand At, viagra brand or at least near, viagra brand the top of that list is New Jersey’s Zach Parise. Viagra brand There were some concerns over his size and ability to survive in the NHL. Viagra brand Yeah, viagra brand how has that turned out so far?

Viagra brand Flash ahead to 2011 and the Rangers very well face that same predicament. Viagra brand You have two big power forwards types whose build is reminiscent of Jessiman – Brandon Saad and Tyler Biggs. Viagra brand The third player had an even bigger concern with a size issue because he might be the one player who literally and physically has to look up to Mats Zuccarello – the 5-foot-6 and 163 pound Rocco Grimaldi.

Viagra brand The one thing in favor of Biggs and Saad over Jessiman is that both players have been rated high on the draft radar for well over a year. Viagra brand In their 2010 NHL Draft Guide, viagra brand ISS had Saad rated as the 7th best prospect in the 2011 Draft while Biggs was rated as the 28th best prospect. Viagra brand Grimaldi, viagra brand like McNeill, viagra brand did not make their Top 100, viagra brand but did merit a brief write-up.

Viagra brand In addition to ISS, viagra brand Saad was also on THN’s radar in 2010. Viagra brand In the 2011 Sneak Preview section of their 2010 Draft Preview, viagra brand THN rated Saad at #5. Viagra brand A scout told them, viagra brand “Very good skater with extra gear, viagra brand which is unusual for a guy his size. Viagra brand Moves the puck through traffic, viagra brand [has] good positioning and creates space.”

Viagra brand Rangers Director of Player Personnel Gordie Clark might look at one of these three players because they come close to having the POTENTIAL to be difference makers – something that might not be available at #15.

Viagra brand “Everybody’s going to have those first eight or nine guys, viagra brand in whatever order [on their list], viagra brand and you’ll end up with six or seven impact players, viagra brand” Clark told Steve Zipay of Newsday. Viagra brand “The next group, viagra brand seven or eight, viagra brand will be very good. Viagra brand Top-line players or No. Viagra brand 1 or No. Viagra brand 2 defensemen? No.”

Viagra brand Each player has ratings for the following scouting services: The Hockey News (THN), viagra brand TSN.ca (TSN), viagra brand Red Line Report (RLR), viagra brand NHL’s Central Scouting (CS), viagra brand and International Scouting Service (ISS). Viagra brand CS breaks down their ratings by North American skaters, viagra brand European skaters, viagra brand North American goaltenders and European goaltenders. Viagra brand THN lists each prospect’s NHL Translation. Viagra brand Both ISS and RLR provide a prospects’ comparable NHL player. Viagra brand TSN ranked the Top 60 players and listed 25 Honorable Mentions. Viagra brand

Viagra brand TYLER BIGGS – RW –
THN: # 20 (power forward) —– TSN: # 15 —– CS: # 22 NA
RLR: # 23 (Chris Neill) —– ISS: # 31 (Keith Tkachuk)

Viagra brand Biggs has a connection to the Rangers organization through his father. Viagra brand Don Biggs played two seasons with the Binghamton Rangers and set franchise records in scoring (54-84-138) in the 1992-93 season. Viagra brand At 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, viagra brand you can’t say that he was a chip off his father’s block given that Don was only 5-foot-8 and 180 pounds. Viagra brand The Loveland, viagra brand Ohio native will continue his hockey development close to home at the University of Miami.

Viagra brand Biggs spent last season as the captain of the U.S. Viagra brand National Team Development Program and scored 17 goals and 11 assists with 112 PIM in 48 games that the team played against USHL squads. Viagra brand Biggs is no stranger to international hockey as he is a two-time gold medalist for the USA in the 2010 and 2011 U-18 championships.

Viagra brand THN: One scout said, viagra brand “His dad was a real pain in the ass and he will be, viagra brand too. Viagra brand He is legitimate tough. Viagra brand Good size, viagra brand he’s strong, viagra brand he’s going to find a way to get to the NHL.” THN continues. Viagra brand “Whether that route [to the NHL] involves a great deal of scoring remains to be seen, viagra brand but experts are unanimous in praise of Biggs’ physical skills and surliness.”

Viagra brand RLR: “Rugged, viagra brand ultra tough winger has established himself as one of the most feared fighters in this class. Viagra brand The question is whether he’ll be a true power forward or only a checker/fighter in the NHL. Viagra brand Hits to hurt and intimidate. Viagra brand Strong in puck pursuit and finishes all of his checks really hard. Viagra brand Has power in stride and acceleration is above average.”

Viagra brand CS: Jack Barzee said, viagra brand “He has that leadership quality … that desire, viagra brand that passion, viagra brand that competitiveness. Viagra brand He just never quits. Viagra brand He’s a young player who has taken the role as leader of his team. Viagra brand He does most of their fighting when they have to fight. Viagra brand He’s kind of the guy that when someone starts picking on somebody, viagra brand he’s standing up for them. Viagra brand I think while wearing the ‘C’ may have taken a little away from his offensive finish, viagra brand my gut feeling is that I can’t think of anything else but an uphill path for Tyler.”

Viagra brand ISS: “His intimidating and crushing physical forechecks open the door for a lot of offensive pressure and he has proven that he can take advantage of that around the net. Viagra brand He has a great shot with good quick release, viagra brand but does most of his damage directly in front of the net. Viagra brand When he is on, viagra brand he is dominant and controls the game, viagra brand but he can go long periods where even his physical play doesn’t undo his invisibility.”

Viagra brand ROCCO GRIMALDI – C –
THN: # 32 (Goal scoring forward) —– TSN: # 23 —– CS: # 32 NA
RLR: # 10 (Theo Fleury) —– ISS: # 15 (Martin St. Viagra brand Louis)

Viagra brand There is no getting around the fact that the 800-pound gorilla in the room is Grimaldi’s size – or lack thereof. Viagra brand This is how THN started off their write-up on Grimaldi, viagra brand “There is undersized and then there is Rocco Grimaldi.” The one thing that makes Grimaldi an intriguing player, viagra brand even at his size, viagra brand his the second sentence in that write-up. Viagra brand “At just 5-foot-6, viagra brand he would be one of the shortest players in the NHL, viagra brand but talent evaluators just can’t shake the fact the kid produces at an excellent clip, viagra brand no matter what the venue.”

Viagra brand Produce he did. Viagra brand As a teammate of Biggs on the U-18 team, viagra brand the Rossmoor, viagra brand California native scored 34 goals and 28 assists in 50 games – and even should some grit with 57 PIM. Viagra brand Grimaldi, viagra brand who is going to the University of North Dakota, viagra brand makes up for his lack of size with speed, viagra brand guile, viagra brand hockey sense, viagra brand and the heart of a lion.

Viagra brand THN: A scout said, viagra brand “He’s a special player. Viagra brand Everywhere he’s been he’s been dynamic. Viagra brand I don’t know what he’s listed at, viagra brand but he looks stocky.”

Viagra brand RLR: “The straw that stirs the drink of the U.S. Viagra brand National Team’s all-important first line. Viagra brand Tiny little pocket rocket is an agitator extraordinaire and very willing to mix it up physically with much bigger foes. Viagra brand Dynamic skater with instant acceleration and a separation gear. Viagra brand Tremendous finisher is a super sniper, viagra brand but also unselfish with excellent playmaking ability. Viagra brand Keenly instinctive and a true game-breaker.” RLR projects him out as a “Top line scorer who converts to wing as a pro.”

Viagra brand ISS: “If not for his diminutive stature, viagra brand we would likely be talking about Grimaldi as a potential 1st overall pick. Viagra brand He is unbelievably quick and has a seemingly endless bag of tricks with the puck. Viagra brand Although a smaller player, viagra brand Grimaldi plays with passion and isn’t afraid to play tough when called for. Viagra brand He has extremely strong core strength and is considered one of the best workers off the ice as well as on it.”

Viagra brand BRANDON SAAD – LW –
THN: # 14 (Two-way forward) —– TSN: # 22 —– CS: # 19 NA
RLR: # 21 (R.J. Viagra brand Umberger) —– ISS: # 24 (Patrick Marleau)

Viagra brand After coming up through the USNTDP ranks, viagra brand the Gibsonia, viagra brand Pennsylvania native decided to pursue a different career path than Biggs and Grimaldi when he chose to play for Saginaw (OHL). Viagra brand In 59 games with Saginaw, viagra brand he scored 27 goals (12 PPG) and 28 assists with 48 PIM. Viagra brand The 6-foot-1 and 208 pound Saad won gold with the U-18 team in 2010 but was one of the final seven cuts for the 2011 team. Viagra brand One has to wonder if Saad ever really had a chance to make the team due to his decision to play Canadian Junior as opposed to staying in the States.

Viagra brand Saad is a huge Pittsburgh Penguins fan and his favorite player is Sidney Crosby so some intense deprogramming will be needed if he is the Rangers selection . Viagra brand His freshman hockey coach in high school was former NHLer Troy Loney.

Viagra brand THN: “There are some scouts who believe that from a physical standpoint, viagra brand Saad is ready to jump to the NHL next season. Viagra brand His game is raw and could use seasoning, viagra brand but scouts like what they see.” One scout said, viagra brand “I don’t think he’s had the type of year that people expected. Viagra brand A lot of people expected him to walk into the OHL and get 50 goals. Viagra brand That’s how good he looked the past two years. Viagra brand I don’t know what is was, viagra brand but he didn’t meet expectations.

Viagra brand RLR: “At times a dominating force who controlled the play nearly every shift, viagra brand but too often was a passenger and ended up being a disappointing underachiever in our eyes. Viagra brand Has every tool in the shed with size/strength, viagra brand hockey sense, viagra brand and puck skills. Viagra brand Has a rocket shot with pro-calibre release, viagra brand and soft hands to feather passes on the tape. Viagra brand Oddly, viagra brand his skating stride seemed to regress this year, viagra brand though he’s still very strong on his pegs and difficult to knock off the puck.”

Viagra brand CS: Chris Edwards said, viagra brand “Brandon has very good speed and agility and that makes him dangerous, viagra brand he’s solid on his skates and fights through checks very well. Viagra brand He plays a solid two-way game and is very responsible defensively.”

Viagra brand ISS: “Saad is a skilled, viagra brand offensive minded winger that possesses the size of a power forward, viagra brand but seems to bring a little more offensive creativity to the table. Viagra brand Saad is a real strong skater, viagra brand possessing a long powerful stride that generates speed and quickness.” ISS had problems with his inconsistent level of play – both in production and physical play. Viagra brand That could be why they view his NHL Potential as “Boom or bust! He simply doesn’t battle hard enough to be a good 3rd liner.”

Viagra sales in canada THE VERDICT ON THE RANGERS FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICK

Viagra sales in canada If the New York Rangers 1st round choice were mine to make, viagra sales in canada it would be C/RW Mark McNeill. Viagra sales in canada At 6-2/201, viagra sales in canada he brings some size and grit to the Rangers corps of forwards – as well as someone who is not afraid to drop the gloves to defend his teammates. Viagra sales in canada Once THN pointed out that he had played RW, viagra sales in canada my decision was made. Viagra sales in canada It also didn’t hurt that they mentioned McNeill has played some point on the power play.

Viagra sales in canada “He’s one of those kids that has the ability to do so many different things, viagra sales in canada he’s got so much upside to him. Viagra sales in canada … He’s a powerful skater and has great hockey sense, viagra sales in canada” Prince Albert GM/Coach Bruno Campese said of McNeill.”

Viagra sales in canada “He’s got very good basic skills and he’s got the ability to be a real tough person to play against. Viagra sales in canada He’s got the mental capabilities to understand the game as well . Viagra sales in canada . Viagra sales in canada . Viagra sales in canada I really believe he has all the attributes. Viagra sales in canada He’s got certain gifts that other players just don’t have. Viagra sales in canada That really bodes well for playing in the NHL.”

Viagra sales in canada One of the most important factors in selecting McNeill is the progress he showed from his rookie season in Prince Albert to last year. Viagra sales in canada After going scoreless in four games as a 16-year-old, viagra sales in canada McNeill had some success in his first year in 2009/2010 with 9 goals and 15 assists in 68 games.

Viagra sales in canada Last season’s breakthrough year of 32 goals and 49 assists is the kind of step forward teams want to see out of prospective draft picks.

Viagra sales in canada It is very interesting that NHL’s CS used scout Blair MacDonald’s quote on McNeill because of the connection MacDonald has to Rangers President/GM Glen Sather. Viagra sales in canada Slats coached MacDonald for seven seasons (WHA and NHL combined) when both were in Edmonton.

Viagra sales in canada If McNeill were not available, viagra sales in canada my second choice would be LW Matthew Puempel. Viagra sales in canada His offensive ability is most intriguing and could eventually be a perfect complement for Marian Gaborik on the first line. Viagra sales in canada However, viagra sales in canada I do have two concerns from last season dealing with his inconsistency and his hip injury.

Viagra sales in canada The inconsistency part can be chalked up to youthful mistakes, viagra sales in canada but the hip injury does cause me to pause. Viagra sales in canada While he had one of the most renowned hip specialists perform his surgery, viagra sales in canada it is still enough to bump him down to the second spot.

Viagra sales in canada Since it is not out of the realm of possibility that both McNeill and Puempel could be gone by the time the Blueshirts pick at # 15, viagra sales in canada I am going to rank the remaining forwards.

Viagra sales in canada Despite having the body to be an NHL power forward, viagra sales in canada Nicklas Jensen needs to be more consistent in his physical game and is a player whose consistency ebbs and flows. Viagra sales in canada While he might give Coach John Tortorella fits with his defensive play, viagra sales in canada Jensen’s ability to play both wings and his willingness to come to North America to further his career are intriguing. Viagra sales in canada When he is on his game he has the potential to be the impact scoring forward the Rangers need.

Viagra sales in canada As a result, viagra sales in canada Jensen is fourth on my list of potential Ranger draft picks.

Viagra sales in canada Tyler Biggs and Brandon Saad may both turn out to be “steals” of the 2011 Draft, viagra sales in canada but I just can’t help shake the memories of Hugh Jessiman – especially in the case of Biggs. Viagra sales in canada

Viagra sales in canada After spending three seasons in the USHL, viagra sales in canada you would have expected that he would have put up impressive numbers but that was not the case. Viagra sales in canada Much like Jessiman‘s situation, viagra sales in canada was Biggs hurt by not stepping up his level of play – both personally and league-wise?

Viagra sales in canada As a result, viagra sales in canada Biggs would be sixth on my list of potential Ranger draft picks.

Viagra sales in canada Saad struggled some last year, viagra sales in canada but that can be explained by his stepping up in class from the USHL to the OHL. Viagra sales in canada However, viagra sales in canada did how did that much did that step up in class play into his poor play in the second half of last season? ISS wrote, viagra sales in canada “The big question is his grit and willingness to pay the price at times [and] does seem to shy away from the rough stuff.” He only scored 7 of his 27 goals in the second half of the season. Viagra sales in canada The one thing in his favor is that he might be the closest of all six of my potential draft picks because of his physical attributes.

Viagra sales in canada As a result, viagra sales in canada Saad is fifth on my list of potential Ranger draft picks.

Viagra sales in canada As you have already figured out, viagra sales in canada Rocco Grimaldi is third on my list of potential Ranger draft picks – I think. Viagra sales in canada Part of me is comfortable with him being my third choice, viagra sales in canada but part of me wonders if the Rangers shouldn’t take the gamble and go for the high-risk/even-higher-reward Grimaldi.

Viagra sales in canada I have to admit that Grimaldi has had me changing my mind more than once during the weeks leading up to writing my Rangers Draft Preview. Viagra sales in canada At first I thought it would make a nice angle with Biggs and Saad and looking back to 2003 and how the Rangers passed over the likes of Zach Parise to select Jessiman.

Viagra sales in canada However, viagra sales in canada the more I read about Grimaldi, viagra sales in canada the more intrigued I became. Viagra sales in canada While the “new NHL” has opened up the game for smaller players, viagra sales in canada Grimaldi’s lack of size is startling. Viagra sales in canada People point to Martin St. Viagra sales in canada Louis as a comparison for Grimaldi. Viagra sales in canada However, viagra sales in canada if Rocco were 5-8 (and not 5-6) he would probably be a top-10 pick at the very least.

Viagra sales in canada Some Ranger fans would shy away from Grimaldi based on Zuccarello’s struggles, viagra sales in canada but that comparison is not completely valid. Viagra sales in canada While they are the same size, viagra sales in canada Grimaldi is more Theo Fleury than Mats Zuccarello.

Viagra sales in canada Grimaldi, viagra sales in canada like Fleury, viagra sales in canada is a feisty player who does not shy away from physical play and was described as an “agitator” by RLR. Viagra sales in canada Both Fleury and Grimaldi, viagra sales in canada unlike Zuccarello, viagra sales in canada are superior skaters who can handle the puck at top speed.

Viagra sales in canada Some fans are against the Grimaldi selection because they are looking for someone step into the lineup as early as next year and they believe that Grimaldi is three-four years away because of his commitment to the University of North Dakota.

Viagra sales in canada While Chris Kreider is spurning the Rangers for a third season at Boston College, viagra sales in canada Derek Stepan did leave after his sophomore season at the University of Wisconsin.

Viagra sales in canada While speaking to Andrew Gross of The Record, viagra sales in canada Rangers Director of Player personnel Gordie Clark admitted that the team had “no real plan like that” – referring to the Blueshirts planned selection of Dylan McIlrath with the 10th overall selection.

Viagra sales in canada While he did say that, viagra sales in canada all things being equal, viagra sales in canada the team would target a forward – it appears that the Rangers are being flexible with their 1st round pick this year. Viagra sales in canada As a result, viagra sales in canada it might be worth the organization’s while to try and read the tone of the Draft. Viagra sales in canada It is possible the Rangers might be able to move down a few spots and pick up a 2nd or 3rd round draft pick to replace the selections lost in trades.

Viagra sales in canada That strategy might be the one to use if they target Grimaldi – and is a strategy that I might be willing to contemplate if the decision were mine.

Online viagra Barring any trades, online viagra the New York Rangers face a very slow Day 2 of the 2011 NHL Draft as trades have left them with just a 4th round pick (#106) and two 5th round draft picks (#134 from Calgary and their own at #136). Online viagra Trying to navigate potential first and even second round draft picks is hard enough, online viagra but trying to look ahead and predict fourth and fifth rounds is a mighty Herculean task.

Online viagra The Blueshirts best course of action is to try and draft the best players available, online viagra regardless of their position. Online viagra If that means adding three more defenseman to an organization that is deep in blueliners so be it. Online viagra The deeper the Rangers talent pool, online viagra the more options they have when it comes to making trades in the future.

Online viagra Of course, online viagra we are all working on the assumption that Glen Sather does not burn up the telephone lines trying to replace some of his lost draft picks. Online viagra It is possible that Sather might be willing to move some of his current prospects if a player on the Rangers radar is available. Online viagra It is not out of the realm of possibility that the Rangers might decide to move the rights to a free agent like Matt Gilroy if they have decided they are not interested in re-signing him.

Online viagra Here is a list of players that should be on the Rangers radar if they last into the 4th and 5th rounds.

Online viagra Each player has ratings for the following scouting services: The Hockey News (THN), online viagra TSN.ca (TSN), online viagra Red Line Report (RLR), online viagra NHL’s Central Scouting (CS), online viagra and International Scouting Service (ISS). Online viagra CS breaks down their ratings by North American skaters, online viagra European skaters, online viagra North American goaltenders and European goaltenders. Online viagra THN lists each prospect’s NHL Translation. Online viagra Both ISS and RLR provide a prospects’ comparable NHL player. Online viagra TSN ranked the Top 60 players and listed 25 Honorable Mentions. Online viagra

Online viagra KALE KESSY – LW –
THN: # 73 —– TSN: #: N/R —– CS: # 101 NA
RLR: # 48 (Milan Lucic) —– ISS: # 99

Online viagra If the Rangers keep the status quo, online viagra one player that I would hope that falls to them in the 4th round is Kale Kessy. Online viagra RLR is very high on the Medicine Hat (WHL) power forward. Online viagra They compare his style of play to that of Milan Lucic. Online viagra The 6-3/185 left winger scored 10 goals and 14 assists and 129 PIM in 65 games. Online viagra I am not so certain he even gets by the second round, online viagra never mind falling to the fourth round, online viagra but if he does he is a perfect fit for the Rangers.

Online viagra RLR wrote, online viagra “Another big-bodied WHL sleeper could probably make a career out of fighting, online viagra but we think he has much more to offer down the road. Online viagra Has fought most of the older guys in the [WHL], online viagra and nobody wants to with him anymore. Online viagra Played on one of the most highly skilled teams in the league and wasn’t relied on the produce offence, online viagra but you can’t help notice the raw tools.”

Online viagra ISS wrote, online viagra “Kessy has a lot of tools in his shed, online viagra but has not been able to consistently display an effective combination of skill and grit on a regular basis. Online viagra He can shoot, online viagra can fight, online viagra and he has shown a willingness to play unsung roles during the season.”

Online viagra MIKE MCKEE – D –
THN: # N/R —– TSN: # N/R —– CS: 144 NA
RLR: # 40 (Kevin Hatcher) —– ISS: #158

Online viagra The 6-5/230 McKee is another player that RLR is extremely high on. Online viagra His ratings might be a bit off because he was converted to defense from LW this season at the Kent School and is a bit of a project because he is set to attend Northeastern University in 2012-2013.

Online viagra RLR: “Has good skating ability and is mobile and very fluid/agile for his size….Due to his lack of experience, online viagra his d-zone footwork needs improvement. Online viagra Beginning to embrace the physical aspect of the game – loves to lay the big hit and comes across ice to keep forwards honest….Not nearly the sum of his parts yet, online viagra but could become a special player if he harnesses tools.

Online viagra ISS: “Big mobile and smooth skating defenseman … good puck skills … sees the ice well …long reach.”

Online viagra TJ TYNAN – C –
THN: N/R —– TSN: N/R —– CS: N/R
RLR: 102 (Chad LaRose) —– ISS: 182

Online viagra The 5-8/156 Tynan was draft eligible last year, online viagra but was not selected. Online viagra He played his freshman season at Notre Dame (CCHA) and scored 19 goals and 27 assists in 36 games. Online viagra Tynan was set to play last season with Des Moines (USHL) until Kyle Palmieri left school to sign with Anaheim. Online viagra RLR sees him as a “quality 4th line role player”.

Online viagra This is what his bio on the Fighting Irish web site says about Tynan: “talented player who makes up for his size with a ton of skill … has tremendous on-ice vision … finds the open man and makes plays … intelligent with the puck … makes his teammates better … strong passer who can also finish … has a good, online viagra accurate wrist shot.”

Online viagra RLR: “It’s ridiculous he wasn’t selected last year. Online viagra Gets overlooked due to his lack of size, online viagra but once again persevered and brought his ‘A’ game every night as one the 3-4 best true freshmen in college hockey. Online viagra Quick, online viagra shifty, online viagra skilled-centre creatively outwits larger opponents. Online viagra Pocket-size, online viagra but competes like a bastard and has excellent hands and moves….Has the fire and mental make-up to overcome obstacles.”

Online viagra ISS: “Draft sleeper! … smaller size, online viagra offensively-minded center … explosive skating [with] superior edge control … can score in bunches … needs to bulk up.”

Online viagra MYLES BELL – D –
THN: # 67 —– TSN: N/R —– CS: # 39 NA
RLR: #76 (Bigger version of Ian White) —– ISS: 195

Online viagra The 6-0/210 defenseman should be a 2nd or 3rd round pick (some even say 1st round) based on his talent and ability. Online viagra However, online viagra there are off-ice issues that make Bell’s future uncertain. Online viagra In late April, online viagra the 17-year-old was hospitalized following a car crash in Calgary that claimed the life of an 18-year-old girl. Online viagra I did not find any additional information on what charges the Royal Canadian Mounted Police will file against Bell – possibly due to Bell being a minor.

Online viagra I do not condone or excuse what Bell did. Online viagra Remember, online viagra the rangers traded for Craig MacTavish who missed the 1984/1985 season due to a conviction for vehicular homicide and driving under the influence of alcohol. Online viagra After spending a year in prison, online viagra MacTavish returned to the Boston Bruins and resumed his NHL career. Online viagra I am merely including Bell based strictly on his hockey talent and the possibility he will be available in the 4th/5th rounds.

Online viagra Bell is an offensive-minded d-man who would bring the power play specialist the Rangers and their fans are looking for. Online viagra In 66 games with Regina (WHL), online viagra he scored 13 goals and 31 assists with 87 PIM.

Online viagra RLR: “Smooth skater who can really go with the puck on his stick and loves to push it aggressively up ice, online viagra but lacks top speed straight line speed and needs to work on his lateral movement. Online viagra Runs a productive power play and can trigger it himself with a huge point blast….Tends to get away from his assignments and gives up on plays. Online viagra Strong and plays with some nastiness, online viagra but needs to learn that sometimes less is more.”

Online viagra ISS: “Good offensive instincts … very good skater/mobility … tough customer … PP quarterback … heavy shot.”

MAXIME LAGACE – G –

THN: #: N/R —– TSN: N/R —– CS: # 21NA-G
RLR: # 99 (Martin Biron) —– ISS: 19 G

Online viagra The Rangers have three prospect goaltenders under contract in their system (Jason Missiaen, online viagra Scott Stajcer and Cam Talbot) with Chad Johnson a free agent. Online viagra The Rangers would be wise to take a flyer on a goalie at some point in the 2011 Draft – even if they have to trade down in the 4th or fifth round in order to acquire an extra draft pick.

Online viagra The 6-1/175 netminder backed up Evan Mosher with Prince Edward Island (QMJHL). Online viagra Lagace, online viagra who did not turn 18 until January 2011, online viagra appeared in 18 games posting an 8-4-0 re4cord with a 3.59 goals against average, online viagra .884 save percentage and 1 shutout.

Online viagra RLR sees his NHL projection as a “Back-up with physical tools to develop into #1”. Online viagra Lagace was rated as the $ 9 North American goaltender in the CS mid-term rankings.

Online viagra RLR: “Here’s the real Red Line sleeper. Online viagra Much like J.F. Online viagra Berube two years ago, online viagra Lagace was a victim of spending a lot of time on the bench behind a workhorse #1 netminder. Online viagra He’s got a great goalie’s build … Has shown very quick legs/pads, online viagra gets a fine push-off moving laterally, online viagra and has a strong glove. Online viagra Was thought to be a late-’93 until mid-season, online viagra so scouts were late to focus on him. Online viagra He’s as big a projection as any player in the draft having not been heavily tested against top clubs, online viagra but we feel with proper development he can be one of the top goaltenders from this draft class.”

ANTON ZLOBIN – RW –

THN: N/R —– TSN: N/R —– CS: N/R
RLR: # 110 (Mats Zuccarello) —– ISS: # 129 (N/A)

Online viagra Zlobin is another one of those European players who crossed the Atlantic to further their hockey careers. Online viagra Zlobin left Russia to play with Shawinigan (QMJHL). Online viagra In 59 games, online viagra he scored 23 goals and 22 assists with 28 PIM during the regular season with 5 goals and 1 assist in 12 playoff games. Online viagra In the U-17 tournament, online viagra he scored 2 goals and 8 assists in 6 games.

Online viagra RLR: “has game-breaking goal scoring ability and is lights-out deadly on breakaways. Online viagra Has a natural sniper’s touch and rarely makes a mistake around the net – buries his chances….Thrives in open ice, online viagra but toughness and ability to play in tight checking games is a question mark…..Stays mostly on the perimeter; doesn’t go into traffic much, online viagra but often finds the right moment to jump into the play.”

Online viagra ISS: “He has a very good stick, online viagra displaying a tom of composure and patience when he has possession of the puck. Online viagra “… Zlobin really struggled with the physical North American game and will need to improve this aspect of his game to have a realistic shot at the NHL.”

Viagra users With the 2001 NHL Draft just three weeks away, viagra users New York Rangers president/GM Glen Sather changed the landscape of his team’s draft strategy by trading two 2011 second round draft picks (#45 and #57) and center Roman Horak to the Calgary Flames in exchange for defenseman Tim Erixon and Calgary’s 2011 fifth round draft pick (#134). Viagra users The Rangers acquired the second of the two second round draft picks from Carolina (via Washington) in the Bobby Sanguinetti trade.

Viagra users Considering that the Rangers were without third and seventh round draft picks, viagra users it is not too much of a surprise to see Sather make a move with his second draft picks. Viagra users It will be really interesting to see how/if the Rangers GM continues his wheeling and dealing to fill in the holes in the Blueshirts draft board.

Viagra users Those who think Erixon’s acquisition means the end of Michael Del Zotto’s tenure with the Rangers might be thinking prematurely. Viagra users That is not to say that he is untouchable, viagra users rather it is to say that his trade value took a hit after last season’s struggles. Viagra users

Viagra users I would think the only way Del Zotto is dealt is if Sather can move up in the draft in order to select one of the top scoring forwards. Viagra users The only problem with that plan is the New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils occupy the fourth and fifth spots in the draft. Viagra users If the Rangers could swing a deal with Florida at number three then perhaps Gabriel Landeskog could turn in his Kitchener Rangers jersey for a New York Rangers jersey.

Viagra users In making the announcement of the trade Sather said, viagra users “Tim is an outstanding young defenseman with good size and mobility, viagra users” stated Sather. Viagra users “He plays a complete, viagra users all-around game, viagra users and we feel he is an excellent addition to our developing, viagra users young defense corps.”

Viagra users The 23-year-old Erixon is the son of former Ranger LW Jan Erixon who played his entire 10-year career with the Blueshirts. Viagra users The younger Erixon, viagra users a left-handed shot, viagra users was Calgary’s first round draft pick (#23) in 2009.

Viagra users The Flames faced a 5pm deadline on Wednesday to either sign Erixon or watch as he re-entered the draft. Viagra users Given their cap situation, viagra users Calgary GM Jay Feaster had little choice but to trade the team’s former first round draft pick.

Viagra users “You never want to lose a first-round pick you feel is going to play, viagra users” GM Jay Feaster told The Canadian Press. Viagra users “What would have hurt more would have been losing him for only the compensatory pick. Viagra users If I were standing here in front of you today saying we lost this player and ‘don’t worry because we got the 54th overall pick in the draft this year, viagra users’ that’s a much tougher thing than to have two second-round picks and a player we believe is going to play.”

Viagra users “We tried. Viagra users We made multiple offers. Viagra users We made offers of salary-cap levels, viagra users” Feaster said. Viagra users “All of which were met with ‘we appreciate it very much, viagra users but we still have concerns about whether Tim will be given a legitimate opportunity.”‘

Viagra users In acquiring Horak, viagra users Feaster reunited him with his Chilliwack linemate Ryan Howse – Calgary’s 2009 second round draft pick.

Viagra users Given that Calgary was under the gun to trade him, viagra users one has to wonder if Sather would have been able to lowball Feaster. Viagra users However, viagra users given the online talk that Erixon could have gone as high as the top ten, viagra users Slats might have had no chance to salvage one of the second round draft picks.

Viagra users In 2009, viagra users the International Scouting Service (ISS) offered up the following scouting report on Erixon:

Viagra users “This solid two-way defenseman has proven to scouts that he is the real deal and will be a highly sought after commodity come draft day. Viagra users A well-rounded defender, viagra users Erixon is a good skating, viagra users smart player who has a good set of hands and can read the play well. Viagra users Although not overly quick, viagra users he positions himself well and plays an aggressive defensive style around his own net. Viagra users He can get caught following the puck or over committing to the puck side at times, viagra users but generally has the skill to get to passes and attacking players before they become dangerous. Viagra users Erixon attempts to move the puck quickly, viagra users which can work for him or against him, viagra users depending on the pressure given.”

Viagra users ISS compared his style of player to fellow Swedish defenseman Kenny Jonsson. Viagra users They also called Erixon a “reliable d-man that will play in the league and go unnoticed for 10 years” which sounds a lot like his father. Viagra users Erixon was the 55th rated player by ISS.

Viagra users Erixon entered the 2009 NHL Draft as the fifth best European skater according to the NHL Central Scouting ratings.

Viagra users NHL Director of Central Scouting E.J. Viagra users McGuire said, viagra users” “Tim Erixon brings to his Swedish Elite League club team, viagra users the same kind of elite hockey skills that perhaps his dad, viagra users Jan Erixon, viagra users did for over 500 games in the NHL. Viagra users A smart defenseman who can either lead a rush or support the rush from behind, viagra users he was on display at the World Junior Championship in helping bring his team to the final game.”

Viagra users The Hockey News (THN) ranked Erixon as the 32nd overall best prospect in the draft and viewed his NHL translation as a “two-way defenseman”.

Viagra users In their 2009 NHL Draft Preview THN wrote, viagra users “Erixon has an offensive bent to his game, viagra users but hasn’t put it on display often for scouts when he plays in the Swedish League”. Viagra users In Erixon’s defense, viagra users he was playing in Sweden’s top league as an 18-year-old.

Viagra users The 6-foot-3 and 205 pound Erixon should be ready to battle for a spot on the Rangers Opening Night Roster. Viagra users While he is only 20-years-old, viagra users he has played the last three seasons with Skelleftea (the same team his father played for) in the Swedish Elite League (SEL) tallying 14 goals and 30 assists with 96PIMs in 140 games. Viagra users Erixon made his SEL debut with two games as a 17-year-old during the 2007-2008 season.

Viagra users In addition to his SEL experience, viagra users Erixon has also represented Sweden in international competition. Viagra users He was a member of Sweden’s silver medal winning team at the 2011 IIHF World Championships in Slovakia. Viagra users Erixon also played for Tre Kronor in the 2009 World Junior Championships (silver medal) and 2010 World Junior Championships (bronze medal).

Viagra users While Erixon’s playing experience has been for Sweden, viagra users the young blueliner was born in Port Chester, viagra users NY on February 24, viagra users 1991 while Jan was a member of the Rangers.
