Pavel Buchnevich is the Rangers prospect to be excited about

Pavel BuchnevichCraig Button was on the Rangers Blue Line Podcast recently and said that the Rangers prospect he is most excited about is Pavel Buchnevich.

Button said, “the guy that I really like is Pavel Buchnevich. He has size, he can think, he can skate and he is a competitor. Every time I have watched Pavel the last four years, the bigger the game, the harder the situation, the better he has been. He fits really nicely and is a high end talent.

Button added that he felt Buchnevich might be able to challenge for a spot this season. (Buchevich is staying in Russia at least one-more year.)

Buchnevich “absolutely has top-line forward potential,” has a great shot and is “very creative with the puck.” (Dobber Hockey Prospect Guide)

Gordie Clark said recently, “Whatever decision he makes we are 100% behind it. I think he would have been in the lineup this year. He made his decision and we are behind it and we will just keep going over and tagging up with him. He watches all the Rangers games that he can and it looks like a year from now he will get a crack at it.” (NYR)

I have no problem with the rangers trading all of their first rounders from here to eternity.

First off, you only mentioned one of the players I did. 2nd, Miller and Kreider, while strong, have yet to become consistently dominant players that 1st round picks are intended to be. And 3rd, why not? Those 4 were ALL highly touted prospects who Ranger fans were urged to be "excited about." This time around, I'll decide when to be excited about a prospect, especially when Gordie Clark is the one touting them.

Mcilrath was a bust as soon as they drafted him. Should have drafted fowler or tarasenko. Miller and Kreider were the ones to be excited about before buchnevich. Its not fair to compare buchnevich to those players. Mcilrath was a horrible pick.
