Seems to me like a few players are passing Grachev,

and maybe even Hagelin

It sure is nice talking about top prospects instead of big fat bloated FA contracts like in past.The way I see it other then maybe Richards(hopefully in the off season)bring on the youth.Good to be a Ranger's fan looking at the future.
Bourque is a good little player, but he has not come close to surpassing Grachev on the depth chart. Grachev has NHL experience and has looked better as the season has progressed in the AHL. I personally think he will be a Franzen type in the NHL. I don't foresee Bourque ever making it.
