On balance I'd have to admit things look pretty good, though I think it pays to be very conservative in overall outlook going forward. By that I mean for all the good:

-Montoya, Staal, Sauer, Callahan(very nice surprise), Korpikoski, etc.

-Essentially upgrading the '05 draft to two 1st round picks with the addition of Bourret.

We are still a bit top heavy with question marks and we lack the likes of a can't miss prospect such as Frolov or Kopitar. Given the position we will draft in the Rangers will need to combine equal parts luck and savvy to add solid top line prospects. But I'm not too concerned as the Bourret deal indicates that Sather is still capable of pulling the proverbial rabbit from the hat.

The depth of the cupboard as a whole and the development of certain prospects such as Pyatt, Dupont and maybe Anisimov is encouraging.
