Stralman was ninth on the list and he told Custance that he is comfortable in Alain Vigneault's system. He said that it was an easy transition for him and Dave Maloney has said all season that from start to end Stralman was the Rangers most consistent defenseman.
Richards is 17th and one scout told Custance that Richards still has tremendous qualities with his vision, shot and passing. Custance says that Richards is best suited for a bottom-six role but one that features him on the PP and covers up his defensive issues.
Pouliot is ranked 21st and called a "good fit" with the Rangers.
Callahan is ranked 3rd, behind Paul Stastny and Thomas Vanek, and Custance says that if he gets to July 1 it's expected that Buffalo could offer him the most money.
