Under HF rules, a prospect needs to play 65 games to graduate, and there won't be enough games by February.
But if they graduate (or bust) by the end of the season, and the Rangers do well, we could have a huge number of graduates that are replaced by low picks.
If Zuccarello, McDonagh, Erixon, Hagelin and either Valentenko or Weise graduate or bust, to be replaced by #25 and #55 draftees in 2012, we are likely to fall to the bottom third of prospects among all teams, unless of course the next wave of kids step up big time and/or Slats acquires more guys like Erixon and McDonagh cheap.
Either way, as the quality of the team improves and we pick later, our prospect crop will get worse. Which is not a bad thing in the grand scheme.
