These last two days have been a whirlwind of confusion and anger for New York Rangers fans. First, it saw the team draft Dylan McIlrath in the first round when Cam Fowler and Vladimir Tarasenko were still on the board. Then it saw the team, yesterday, deal 2006 first-round pick Bobby Sanguinetti to the Carolina Hurricanes.

In regards to their draft choice, let’s just be real here—fans were ready to bitch and moan if the Rangers drafted Christ incarnate. Why? Because we can never been happy with anything. Here is poor Dylan McIlrath, torn to shreds by everybody. What do we know about him?

We had not even heard of him prior to Friday (I guess that’s the reason for the anger), but here is this 18-year-old, who all he did was get drafted, and here he is, starting his career, called a failure.

Fans are making it seem like the Rangers took someone who was not even going to go in the draft at all, not a player who was ranked at 15th by TSN, who the Rangers chose at 10th. The myth that the Rangers could have traded down is false, because it has since been speculated that two others teams were interested in him.
