1. D Michael Del Zotto
2. C Artem Anisimov
3. LW Evgeny Grachev
4. C Derek Stepan
5. D Bobby Sanguinetti
I think that's a bit of an oversimplification. Since that time both Del Zotto and McDonagh have continued to progress, while Sanguinetti didn't quite take it up a notch. That's where Sanguinetti tends to lose support, he pretty much flatlined.

Factor in the belief that McD is considered, at this point, to be more NHL ready and it's not hard to see where Sangs was facing an uphill battle.

On a team that has Staal, Girardi,Del Zotto, Gilroy and McDonagh, all under the age of 26 and having played or expected to play in the NHL, it becomes a numbers game. And in this case, Sangs was sitting 6th in that race.

I still think Sangs can become an NHL defenseman. But I don't think he's going to be the 15 goal, 50 point offensive player that was hoped for when he was drafted.
