We had 3 guys (Hagelin, Weise Horak) ranked between 21 and 30 who made the NHL. Right now, we can't even figure out who our 26-30 guys would even be. The ones who are 21-25 are barely prospects and probably none will come close to the NHL.
The prospect pool is still strong, but if Kreider and Hagelin graduate, and especially if we trade away a prospect or two for mid-season help, the Rangers will have a weak prospect pool for the first time since the Winter 2004 rebuilding began. Oh well, it was a great run anyway.
I'm sure we'll get some more steals in later rounds, and maybe some more Shrewd trades
