    • Lundkvist isn’t even in the same area code as Miller, let alone ballpark. He’s a player, but he’s a solid 3rd pair on this team, an improvement on AQA because he can actually defend.

      I don’t like being the guy who pumps the brakes while everybody else is pumping the tires on prospects, but talent evaluation is seriously an issue here of late.

      • I’ve read that Nils’ underlying stats are off the charts. And that’s against adult competition.

        • Stats for D are like boobs on a bull: they don’t really have any function.

          He’s good, just not that good. Kevin Klein is a good comp.

          • It’s great that I can come to this site and absorb expertise that goes beyond guys like Corey Pronman and Scott Wheeler of the Athletic plus various other prospect gurus that extol the premium skills of Nils.

            But keep it coming because, well, I believe you.

          • He *has* premium skills, also has sneaky skills like setting moving picks on F1 when they’re trying to get a zone exit and he doesn’t have the puck.

            But his production is a function of usage, which is something he won’t get in New York due to the people in front of him.

            If you put him on his off hand like they did with Klein & Holden, he will be productive like they were, even in limited usage. This is why Lundkvist is the best trade asset the Rangers have.

          • I mean, you maybe right. I have never seen Nils play, I’m only going by what is reported to us.

            But I believe that the Rangers believe that he will be top 4, which is a bit of an issue on the right side, if you assume that Trouba and Fox are 1-2, whichever way you have them.

            I want to be optimistic about him.

          • Thank you, I try to read up on prospects, whenever I can. And I listen to other bloggers who have good insight on them as well.

            Supposedly, Nils’ skills as a D man are not quite “elite” but pretty close. Now, whether that translates to the NHL is yet to be seen. But the tools appear to be there.

            Talk of “top pair” potential has been thrown around. Imagine a top pair of Miller and Nils. 🙂

      • Good to see the crybabies are back without the ability to defend their position.

        Next time you tools are right will be the 1st.

        • Geez, chill Reen …. he could develop into a Top 4 for certain teams, the operative word is could. I find it hard to belief you think his ceiling is as a 3rd pairing d’man.

          • Read what I wrote, again. Is he playing ahead of Trouba or Fox on the right side?

          • Which is why I quoted you saying “on this team” — perhaps I mistakenly thought: “Good to see the crybabies are back without the ability to defend their position. Next time you tools are right will be the 1st” was referring to, amongst others, me. If not, I agree with you 100% about Nils.
