The Rangers took their first forward of the draft, taking winger Tim Gettinger with their 5th round pick (#141). Gettinger is a big kid at 6’5″ and 206 lbs, but the scouting reports say he is a great skater. Not for his size, just a great skater in general.

Gettinger had some hype because of his size, but fell due to a tough year. Gettinger is Brandon Halverson’s teammate with the OHL’s Soo Greyhounds, so there’s a connection there as well.

    “A big, 6’5 winger” This should make quite a few peeps around here happy… Or, are these kids the kids Stevie Y wanted or wants? 😉

      Unless they are bringing back Drouin, DO NOT trade for rights to Stamkos.

    Good pick, he was rated a lot higher but fell for who knows what reason.

    This kid is good but I heard he cracked his helmet. So we’ll see if that becomes a problem

    A guy you hope can turn into a better skating Mike Rupp. You can teach somebody how to hit, but they have to innately want to hit.
