Who will be the first Ranger fan to report," We had a good draft." I don't know how anyone can have an assessment of our drafted players before we have even seen them play for a period of time in the OHL.

If I had nothing to base my pick on other than stats my pick would be Mason Primeau.
A 6.04 center who had 30 goals 36 assists in 71 games for the Toronto Nationals.

But that's probably how the Rangers picked Smaltz

LR do you have any info or thoughts on Guelph situation? Currently no coach or GM. Maybe Todd Bertuzzi is part of the coaching staff after they draft Tag?

Burnett would be a strong possibility, he's running the draft for Flint today. Weird situation in Guelph no head coach or GM in place. not the most stable situation to be drafted into.

LR, I'm hoping you can provide a little commentary on our draft picks and share what you know and have seen and heard about them.

Grayson Ladd? 135lbs.? Somebody please tell me more.

Thomas Harley picked 14th by the Steelhead is 6.02

Edit... When his name first showed up on the OHL draft site as the Rangers pick they had him listed as 5.9 135lbs.
They have since changed it to 6.02

Either they've mixed up his size with someone else or grossly rounded up the numbers :)
Just kidding of course. Kids do grow at that age.

FYI

The Draft show is way behind the actual picks.
