Just because the Rangers picked late doesn't mean they didn't get an exceptional talent.
In recent years, the Rangers have used their low draft picks very well, selecting Chris Kreider in 2009 (19th overall), Michael Del Zotto and Derek Stepan in 2008 (20th and 51st overall, respectively) and team captain Ryan Callahan in 2004 (127th overall).
The steal of them all was 2011-12 Vezina Trophy winner Henrik Lundqvist in 2000 with the 205th overall pick.
General Manager Glen Sather and Coach John Tortorella have earned the benefit of the doubt both for past draft steals and the team's excellent 2011-12 season.
The Rangers have made two trades on day two of the draft but the trades only involve future draft picks.
