Rangers THN Future Watch

The Rangers are ranked #10 by THN with a B-.Last year,the Rangers were ranked #19 with a C+

As already has been mentioned on this board,the Rangers had two prospects in the top 50-Marc Staal at #6 and Bobby Sanguinetti at #32.For some reason,Al Montoya dropped to #54.However,the Rangers were one of two teams to have all their top 5 prospects ranked in top 75(the Blues are the other team).Ryan Callahan is ranked at #67 and Artem Anisimov at #75

1-Staal-Maloney said Staal is ready for the next level-NHL
2-Sanguinetti-the Rangers don't have another player like him-offensive D/run the PP
3-Montoya-has worked with Allaire to correct technical flawa
4-Callahan-is on the fast track/works out with Brian Gionta in the summer
5-Anisimov-reminds Maloney of Steve Rucchin/Rangers want to sign him for HFD-2007-08
6-Lauri Korpikoski
7-Brandon Dubinsky
8-Nigel Dawes
9-Tom Pyatt
10-Dane Byers

No Michael Sauer.No Ivan Baranka

Alex Bourett was Atlanta's #3 prospect

Was Bourett in the top #75?


Love how Dane Byers is before Sauer


That top 10 list though looks better then last year, I can't remember last years but I do remember having a good laugh at it.

I don't get it. How does this kid continue to fly under the radar? I like the development of Byers right now, but NO WAY is he a better prospect than Sauer. This can't come from the organization, can it?

Sauer is getting no love this year because the offense isn't there.

Same thing with Baranka. Neither one stands out and people take that as a negative when in actuality it shows that they are doing their job.

THN's future watch issue doesn't even grab my attention anymore, actually little of their content does nowadays.

I seldom agree with them and I find that polling the elite people on here gives you a much better idea of the situation than they have.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Immonen was on last year's top ten. And, truth of the matter, I believe that, when all is said and done, both Dubinsky and Korpikoski will turn out to be better players than Callahan. Plus, Brodie needs some recognition, too.

Brodie is a player I love.

But you don't see anything about the quiet 36 goals, 69 points and and 85 pim he put up.

The kid still projects as a third line player, but the key is that he is progressing. Every year this kid has gotten better.

He's a 6'2, 210 pound guy who could potentially net 15 goals, 30 points 100 pim and be a physical player on this team.

Well it was said kind of tongue in cheek, but mainly the people who actually know what the hell they're talking about.

Usually it doesn't take very long to figure out who knows what they're talking about and who is just talking out of their rear end.

In fact you can even take two people who know their stuff and disagree about it and it'd give a good picture.

But in a nutshell, basically people who you can tell know the prospects. There is no set list, when you stick around long enough you just kind of know.

i kind of enjoy the fact that Sauer flies under the radar, because it'll be great to see him make a great impression on people when he comes around..

Bourret, where'd he come in?

Dupont, admittedly i haven't seen this kid play at all, save for some photos, but i really enjoy what i've heard about him..

Where is the FastForward button? i can't wait!

I think he could be for us what Chris Neil is to Ottawa....hopefully a bit more.

To me Baranka and Sauer seem to be a lot alike in playing style. Baranka might be a little more physical--he's further along in development--so he's closer. They both in the past have because of their skill fallen short a bit on offensive expectations. Good skaters. Good puck movers. Both should be ahead of Byers--not taking anything away from Dane he's had a surprisingly good first pro season. Callahan is also missing. Dupont is a particular favorite of mine--size, skill and agressiveness. He should be in the 10-12 area anyway. We don't have too many players like him.

I hope Anisimov has more speed than Rucchin! He looked like he wore cement skates when he was here.

exactly, when he was here, as a 34-year old, he was a lot slower.. i'm assuming Maloney is comparing Anisimov to Rucchin in his prime..

here's a "Steve Rucchin Tribute" video on youtube,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qa1GHaQ_4l4

watching it, you could see his skill, and style is pretty desirable in a center. and this is still towards the end of his career in Anaheim (you can see Lupul there, i.e. 2003-2004..

I think I'd compare him more to an Ethan Moreau type. He's not nearly as aggressive or as much of a fighter as Neil is.

He'll drop the gloves from time to time, pop in some goals and play a third line role if he develops.

I think he's got a nice combination and I think he is progressing exactly the way you'd like. Hopefully though expectations don't get unfair.
