As a die hard Rangers fan, I've been disappointed with the team's efforts for years. However, the 2003 NHL Entry Draft stings the most.
With the 12th overall pick, the Rangers chose Hugh Jessiman from Darthmouth College. His attributes matched those of the type of players being drafted in that era: big and not afraid to play in front of the net.
Did Mr. Jessiman work out for the Rangers? No. In fact, he is currently the only first round pick from 2003 to not play in an NHL game.
Here are a few all stars chosen after Jessiman in the first round.
