All of the vets have played in the NHL quite a bit except for Kolarik who Torts seemed to like a lot a couple years ago. So far of the prospects--Kreider, Jean and Miller are playing pretty well. Yogan has enough size and skill but has to use it. Thomas I have some doubts about. Like Bourque he has skill but his lack of size is a problem. Little guys have to do extra things sometimes--they've got to be pro-active and aggressive in the way they play their game. For every Martin St. Louis and Brian Gionta you have 10 Corey Locke's.

On defense the only real prospect of any note is McIlrath who is still recovering from his injury. Collins, Vernace and Gilroy are all vets who can fill in in an emergency but depending on any of them for an extended time would not be a good thing.
they need more depth....its a shame that Mikhail Pashnin and Pavel Valentenko rather stay in russia... Rangers can use some more defensive depth prospects in the AHL...they got some in juniors and college but those are 2-3 years away
