Could new Rangers coach put BU star on their draft radar?

Could new Rangers coach put BU star on their draft radar?

David Quinn came into the jobA as the 35th coach in Rangers historyA with a couple of important preexisting relationships a€” but a future reuniting might be the most interesting.

When Quinn left Boston University after five years as head coach, he also left 18-year-old winger Brady Tkachuk, whom many believe will be a top-five pick in Junea€™s entry draft. The son of longtime NHLer Keith Tkachuk, Brady just finished his freshman year at BU, and Quinn sees all the skills for him to be a successful pro.

a€œI think hea€™s going to be a great player at the NHL level,a€ Quinn said at his introductory press conference on Thursday at the Garden. a€œHe has all the tools. I think people get enamored with his physical play, but hea€™s a talented player. Great skill, great vision, he skates well. Therea€™s an awful lot there.a€

After the Lightning lost to the Capitals in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final on Wednesday, the draft order for all three of the Rangersa€™ first-round picks was set. They own No. 9 (their own), No. 26 (from Boston) and No. 28 (from Tampa Bay). They also have two second-round picks and two third-round picks, a nice little bushel if they choose to try to move up.

Despite his attachment to Tkachuk, Quinn wasna€™t going to spend his first day on the job making any assumptions about his input regarding the draft process.
