"The Rangers need to remedy a shortage of scoring forwards. After selecting defensemen in the first round of the 2005, 2006 and 2008 NHL Entry Drafts, as well as adding first rounder Ryan McDonagh through a 2009 trade, it is likely that the Rangers will select a forward in the first round of this year's draft. A specific need exists at center, where the team (and system) are short on first and second line center icemen. Although recent graduate Artem Anisimov will likely eventually fill a second-line role and Derek Stepan is projected to be a first to second line forward, there is no purely first-line center in the system. With Evgeny Grachev already playing wing in the AHL, and expected to continue developing in that position, a playmaking center will be at the top of the Rangers list later this week."
In the Hockey's Future's mock draft they have the Rangers taking Jeff Skinner.
...i'd be shocked if the Rangers go any other direction than forward. I'm still on Nino, but I'm worried he won't be around at #10.
...while Skinner is a pure goal scorer, I'm down on him due to his size. Rangers have way too many small forwards already.
