Niederreiter & Johansen Won't Be Around at #10

Jess Rubenstein at The Prospect Park feels that Nino Niederreiter and Ryan Johansen will not be around by the time the Rangers pick at #10 in tonight's 2010 NHL Draft and thinks the Rangers should draft C Emerson Etem of Medicine Hat.

TSN has Etem, who is originally from Long Beach, California, as their #17 ranked prospect.

...don't know much about Etem except that he was a great roller hockey player in Cali who has made amazing progress as a player the last three years.

...he seems a bit of a reach at #10 but if the Rangers are on Etem, I wonder if they would trade down assuming they could get him later in the first round.

No way they are going Etem, Jess Rubenstein is the last person I would ever listen to when it comes to anything Ranger related.

Wow never realized the dislike towards Jess. I think he does a great job. Go figure.

i think he's fairly knowledgable but his attitude makes him a tough read. even in his blog he uses we when its him.

i did hear him on radio with blueshirt banter and he comes accross better that way than in print.

lesley treff on hockey future is knowledgeable and she comes across well. same with laurie on her blog beyond the blueshirts - both are knowledable and yet come accross in humble way

Note to self: Don't use we.
