Hmmm....one scout says he'd be shocked if Michael Vukojevic doesn't go to Michigan - yikes. Here's hoping the Rangers didn't mess up on their 2nd round pick in two consecutive years !

Hey LR, do you think we've got a reasonable shot at recruiting Vukojevic?

Mack Simon - 5.8 - 140 (USA)
Moses Acee - 6.1 - 185 (USA)

Alex Dominique - 5.10 - 151
Connor Tait - 6.0 - 190 (USA)

2 Left Wing

Michael Petizian - 5.5 - 156
Ryan O'Hara - 5.8 - 132

1 Right Wing
Graham Dickerson - 5.9 - 172

1 Goalie

Connor Hasley - 5.10 - 195 (USA)


5 Americans taken in Rounds 7, 9, 10, 12, 13. Good rounds to take risks in. Who knows who might report.

Add in some of last year's draft picks and Rookie Camp will be interesting to watch.

You can never say it's been a good draft until a year or 2 down the road. But there sure seems to have been a good drafting plan in place. I hope there is a sandpaper type player in there.

LR, I don't have any inside scoop like you are privy to. Just something tells me Vukojevic will come. I think we might pull off a Londonesque thingy here.

Jacob Trouba , which resulted in the Kitchener Rangers vs. Michigan School Paper lawsuit.

I should have bolded the "we tried" part as he never committed lol.
