Obviously at this point the rangers have better prospects. As they damn well should! They just traded away their whole team to rebuild!

On the other hand, the Isles have more NHL ready prospects. Caldwell, Gervais, Bergenheim, Dubliewicz, Hunter, Weinhandl and Papineau are all close to being impact players in the NHL. While players like Jessiman and Lundqvist (to name a few) undoubtedly have better upside and will probably become better players, they are not at a stage where they could come in and help the team.

As for the Rangers being top 5, I would disagree unless they come away with Ovechkin, Malkin or Olesz without giving up any prospects. They are probably top 15 right now, and should be top 10 if they have a strong draft.
