    I've seen so many Athletic links lately that seem like good reads. Not sure if it's because it is draft season/free agency coming up, but are the in season articles worthwhile to get a subscription?

    A lot of praise for the Clark and the scouting staff. Quinn will be a good resource for them when asking about players for the draft. They're pretty confident about someone they can get at 9 though he obviously didn't disclose names. When asked about picking for need or BPA, he said it's always BPA.

    It's 100% worth it. The prospect coverage is phenomenal plus you have must reads like LeBrun's columns. That's without even tapping into other sports you may be interested in.

    It's worth it. I got it on a discount for the NY launch

    Shayna writes amazing stuff the the Rangers.

    Carp is fine for game reviews. His other writing is lackluster.

    The other NHL writers are great though. LeBrun, Custance, Pronman, all have great stuff that comes out with some regularity

    Isn't Detroit going D at 6? That seems to be the pretty strong consensus.

    Detroit will take BPA on the list. They are deep in 2nd and 3rd pairing interchangeable parts and are looking to move some of them,

    Lots of saying they're prepping for the draft. They're prepared to pick at places they don't necessarily have picks right now (and were similarly prepped last year), whether that's higher or lower.

    Key point for me was they have a name they think they can get at 9. Which is a bit concerning to me, given how all over the board the top 10 is. Makes me think the name is Farabee.

    For sure. Lots of good reads in there imo. Less so Ranger specific, but in general for hockey. You can get discount codes to get it for like 40$ for the whole year if you look around.

    Sounds like they're hell bent on moving up more than once.

    I mean I didn't read the article, thats just my interpretation of what you said lol.

    It may very well be Farabee whom would be a fine selection. I've had the feeling that they're hoping for
    Kotaniemi

    Thanks everyone. Every now and then I see the subscription discounts pop up. Sounds worth it. Appreciate the feedback.

    I literally just took the plunge.

    Didn't realize it was as cheap as it is.

    The only way to get Zadina is to trade before the draft starts with Montreal.

    That screams Farabee. Checks off all of Gordon’s boxes

    I know this board would lose its mind, but I’d be thrilled if we took Farabee.

    I'd be disappointed if we took Farabee. I wouldn't be up in arms, but I really think there are better picks, regardless of how the draft pans out. The kid is going to be a gamer, though.

    If we can’t draft one of the top 4 (Dahlin,Svech,Zadina, Hughes) then Farabee is my next top choice. Screams a bigger version of Parise to me.

    I don't see Farabee being a better player than Wahlstrom or Kotkaniemi.

    Farabee probably doesn’t slide past 13.

    I’ve beaten the Farabee argument to death, so I’ve cooled it in recent weeks. But I don’t think there’s any mystery he is my favorite prospect in this draft. I have him 8th and ahead of Bouchard, Dobson and Kotkaniemi. Though they are all pretty close in the same general tier for me.

    Honestly, you single handedly have prevented me from jumping off a cliff if we take him. Seems like a NYR pick as you've said, but it does look like he's a very solid prospect. I'm hoping for Dobson or Wahlstrom personally (not likely), but I'd be ok with him if we went off the board. I'm drinking, but this post is meant in the most positive way possible.
