Corey Pronman at Hockey Prospectus inexplicably leaves the Rangers out of the top 10 of his organizational rankings…
11. New York Rangers: The Rangers won’t be this high next year with likely graduations from top prospects Chris Kreider and Tim Erixon, but until that time, it looks like New York has several more pieces to add to an already good young core. Beyond their top two prospects, they have several players with notable upside in their pipelines in addition to solid depth.
…no Pronman don’t worry about Miller, St. Croix, McIlrath, Hrivik, Yogan, Fogarty, Bourque, Fast, Jean and Skjei.
…yeah, system will be real barren with Kreider & Erixon on the big club next year. What a joke.
Last year Pronman ranked the Rangers #20th calling the organization fairly average then adding that Kreider projects to be an “An above-average second line forward ceiling though he could end up as an above-average to average third line forward.”
…hahahahahaha! Great call on Kreider buddy.
