Honestly i didn't think we would be this high either, but reading through some of the other top teams it's not outlandish to think we could have slotted anywhere in that top 10.

Aside from Hamonic (love how the Islanders are only 1 spot ahead of us. So beautiful), no defensive prospect in any of the top 10 teams is playing at a higher or better level then McDonagh. Players like Forbort, Gudbranson, Blum and Cole could get there someday, but some of them haven't played in the pros at all.

Kreider just had a good WHC, something none of these prospects have accomplished, and has tremendous upside, as does Thomas, who also has insane numbers to back it up. For every Lokitionov, Beck, Filatov and Holland the Rangers have Grachev. Our forward and defensive depth is amongst the best, but like HF said, the Rangers simply lack good goaltending.
