Tonight The Mouth Talks to the Ranger GM who Picked Four Players over Niklas Lidstrom in the 1989 Draft !

Tonight On Blueshirt Banter Radio The Mouth talks to the man who conducted the 1989 draft for the New York Rangers former interim GM Joe Bucchino.  

Joe served as GM for the Rangers for 54 days between the Phil Espositio and Neil Smith regimes.

The Rangers had four shots to pick Lidstrom before Detroit took him in the middle of the Third round. 

The four Players The Rangers selected ahead of Lidstrom were

Round 1   Steven Rice
Round 2   Jason Prosofsky
Round 3   Rob Zamuner
Round 3   Louie Debrusk

To be fair a lot of GM's passed on Niklas Lidstrom, but imagine what the Rangers would have been with Niklas Lidstrom and Brian Leetch on the backline ?

Join us Tonight at 8 PM when The Mouth asks Joe Bucchino about his 1989 draft as well as his meteoric rise in the Ranger organization, which is a great story in of itself. 

The Mouth promises you it's going to be a great show.
