Dark horse in our system

I would go with Dawes. I still don't think many Ranger fans give him a shot because of his size. However, looking at some of the success of smaller players like St. Louis lately I think he has a good chance to make it.

...Ill agree..i dont really consider him a top prospect because of his size. Its rare players with that size will amount to a good player but of course there are exceptions.

heck if we're going with tiny players, i'd go with pertruzalek

everything i've read about him says he has insane hockey sense and is just a very skilled player. but he's tiny

Seems to have a lot of detractors but you can't teach size. Hopefully he can work his way through the system and with the right coaching reach his full potential.

I agree. I am also hopefuly Dubinsky will start attracting some attention soon.

Im going with Joey Crabb. Fans cant seem to shake the grinder/never amount to anything more than a 3rd/4th liner label. This guy can play offensively, but people dont want to recognize that.

He can skate, shoot, pass, grind, take hits, give hits, stands at 6'1''/6'2'', has heart...he is a true player. I really hope he makes it and translates well to the pro game if there ever is a pro game that is.

How about Dom Moore? I'm amongst those who don't give him much credit, but I have to admit that if he makes it as an NHL regular, he'll be a very useful player.

Haven't seen Crabb play but it seems he has a big supporting cast. Pertruzalek certainly is dominating offensively. I'm not sure how his frame is. Dawes seems really well built for such a small player.

Crabb is on the #1 team in the country, so yeah, he has some nice players with him. But if you talk to people that see him play they'd say he was the one making others look better. He's not an offensive dynamo, just well rounded in all areas of the game.

I like Dubinsky, Crabb and I also like Marcus Jonasen.

Immonen while not a dark horse probably will be better then most other teams think. I remember Toronto saying he had the highest upside of any of their prospects

I'm going to say Chris Holt. He gets little mention on here, but if he were playing for a powerhouse team like Montoya we'd be hearing his name alot more. 6'3 217 goalie takes up alot of net, not to mention he has improved his skills every year since being drafted.

Is Rick Kozak still Rangers property? He's a tough, mean, nasty SOB who can skate and isn't completely offensivly inept. Him and Nigel Dawes are my picks for dark horses... two fellow Manitobans, but no bias!!

Not an NHL-caliber player. Neither him nor Labs have shown that they can handle the NHL game.

Val has never gotten a real shot at the NHL. Why not give him a real shot? And you cant judge Barbs on those few games he's played over the past couple of years in the NHL. Lets give both of them a real chance at it, we have nothing to lose.

I dont consider Callahan a dark horse. He reminds me of a more gritty Mark Parrish. A guy who drives to the net and has speed.

I'd go with Lampman. I think he tends to get lost in the mix when we talk about Tyutin, Kondratiev, Pock, Taylor, Liffiton, etc. I really think over time Lampman could turn into a solid no.4, Richard Matvichuk-type player. There's no doubt in my mind that he would've made the Rangers opening night roster this season.

BTW, how cool is it to run off a long list of solid defensive prospects!
