Video: Rangers Rated Fogarty As Late-First Rounder

The reports on Steven Fogarty have varied somewhat widely over his current skill level and potential down the line.  Jim Cerny discussed the entire draft with New York Rangers Assistant Director of Player Personnel for the Rangers official website and in the course of the discussion Gorton said that they thought they lost out on Fogarty when they dealt away the two second round picks for Tim Erixon.  He continued that they had Fogarty rated as a late first round prospect and when he was still there in the third they pulled the trigger on the trade to send Evgeny Grachev to St. Louis.
