    22 points in 3 playoff games, wow sign this tree trunk up ASAP. lol

    • Edström’s 4th line put up more points than Frölunda’s 1st line in that series. And Edström drove a lot of that.

      Joel Otto kind of work.

      The Rangers are looking at having a seriously cost controlled matchup shutdown line of Edström, Barron and whomever they want to plug in there(Goat, Gettinger, take your pick) that has size, skating and (enough)skill.

      I’m sure the likes of ManUTobbe don’t rate him because he didn’t tear up the Allsvenskan.

      • I would love to see couple of lines this year

        1. Goat, Morgan, Kravs
        2. Laf, Kravs, Chytil. Kravs center Chytil right. Kakko with Panarin
        3. Panarin, Kravs and on the right trying Kakko and Strome

        I doubt any of that will happen. Our management does not mind having 60 percent face off losing and trying something different to improve it

  • Starting to look like a 6th round steal!
    If he gets called up he needs to play a lot.
    If Quinn is going to give him 6 min a game on the 4th line let him stay in Hartford for the season

  • Barron quite a find. I imagine he is a regular on the 4th line next year. Would like to see him with Gauthier, but DQ seems to love Howden.
    Outside of Lias Andersson bust and Miller-McDonough disaster, Gorton has done pretty well….ssshh, we won’t talk about drafting a low ranked goalie in round 2. Still prefer Gorton to Sather!

    • Not just Lindbom, lots of late picks don’t even get to a level above their puck(Ragnarsson et al).

      When they kill it, they kill it; but they’ve never shown they can figure out how to stop whiffing so much.

      • Whether it’s a BIG whiff, or just a player that doesn’t develop, what difference does it make? Either pick works or it doesn’t. hard pressed to find a team that hits more picks than not.

        • Tanto, in my opinion there is a big difference of whiffing on first or second or even third rounder versus missing on the seventh rounder. Gorton has done a lot of whiffing in second and third rounds and many misses after that.

          It is true that less players develop from one draft then get into prospect pool. But in many drafts Gorton did not have a single prospect. We only have few prospects outside of first rounders in his regime.

          The most alarming is that he has not even attempted to draft centers with an exception of Chytil and Lias. That is a big shortcoming which we facing now

          • You don’t attempt to draft anything, all you can do is draft the players you believe in, the best player available. He whiffs no more than any other GM.

          • Nope. On both points

            Check other teams rosters and you shall see many players in later rounds. Show me when Tampa lease whiffed with their first round? Howden? They traded him well to Rangers. ADA? Traded too. Druid? Traded for Sergachev. And that besides drafting Pointe in third and Kucherov in second

            Regarding drafting what’s best on the board. If you have not drafted enough centers especially in the later rounds when better treats draft for needs then you are not building the team

        • When a player develops, but falls short of making the NHL, it’s just a failure of the player not being able to overcome that one weakness that had him in later rounds to begin with. IOTW, the scouts got it right, but not right enough.

          When you just flat out whiff, where the player doesn’t even get offered doesn’t make it out of 2nd tier or ECHL, that means the scouts got it all the way wrong.

          There’s also a development issue as well. MSG has all the resources to make sure that these players can maximize their chances, just seems like it doesn’t work that way.

    • If the Cracken don’t take him then I don’t see any way that he isn’t pushed out by a more talented kid next year or later this year I just don’t see it

    • RangerFan,

      I am not a big fan of Sather with the Rangers. He surely had an incredible record with Oilers. But with all terrible signings and bad lack with first round draft injuries, he did pretty well with drafting in middle and late rounds. Not even going into history, last year team had Fast sixth rounder, King seventh, this year team has Butch third rounder, Schesterkin forth rounder.

      Gorton has been GM for almost six years and so far he has not had a single player outside first rounder to play. And we have Morgan, Robertson, Jones in a prospect pool from round two and down.

      Compare it with Tampa or Toronto. They have pool of talent and players developed coming from later rounds in the same time frame.

      Some fans see a lot more in Gorton than he has deserved

  • Howden and Rooney need to sit and allow Barron to center PDG and Gauthier for a few games. Our 4th line only gets 8 mins a game anyway, so how bad can this be? It won’t happen this series, but I hope it eventually happens.
