Graduations, trades leave New York Rangers prospect pool shallow at some positions
After several years with a very strong group of prospects, the New York Rangers have graduated a lot of home-grown talent to the NHL team. The system remains strong defensively, but the only potential star in the system is winger Chris Kreider. Organizational depth in goaltending remains a weakness, with only Jason Missiaen and Scott Stajcer among the netminding prospects.
having a top team in the league WITH a young core AND having a deep prospect pool would almost be like the Red Wings at the beginning of their close to 2 decade consecutive playoff years. Glen will have to draft well and Gordie will have to keep his eyes peeled.
