Rangers Prospect Poll: #12

With nearly half the vote, faceoff specialist C Oscar Lindberg won round 11. Michael St. Croix had the right to be added.

Don't forget to write-in who should be added in the next round. Also would be good to include a discussion/argument on why you voted for a particular prospect.


TOP PROSPECTS

1. LW Chris Kreider
2. D Ryan McDonagh
3. D Tim Erixon
4. RW Christian Thomas
5. D Dylan McIlrath
6. RW Mats Zuccarello
7. LW J.T. Miller
8. LW Carl Hagelin
9. RW Jesper Fasth
10. D Pavel Valentenko


SECOND-TIER PROSPECTS

11. C Oscar Lindberg

Oscar Lindberg
Center
Born Oct 29 1991
Height 6.00 -- Weight 185 -- Shoots L

2010-11 Skelleftea HC SEL 41 5 9 14 31

"He was a third-line type of player on that team, but he managed very well, and his development curve was better than fine. In my opinion, his value certainly increased this year, even though he was already a pretty high pick as a second-rounder."
- Anders Hedberg, New York Rangers Head Professional Scout-Europe


"At the World Juniors he played ahead of guys who were drafted as first rounders because he adjusted to the tournament a lot quicker than they did. That's what we liked about him, and we were also seeing some really good reports on him throughout the season."
- Gordie Clark

I am going with Kundratek in the poll and Weise to be added, both because they are very close to making the team.

Kundratek is actually our third-best right defenseman right now, though it is likely that someone will get switched from our overloaded left defense. Still, he should see significant games this year. If the Rangers didn't feel confident that he's ready for at least part time duty, they would definitely acquire someone like Steve Eminger. It doesn't look like they are trying to do that, meaning they are decently confident in Kundratek's ability.

He has to go ahead of guys who just got drafted in the 5th round, even ones from the third round who are injured (Bourque) or totally unproven (Fogarty).

Went with Kundratek last time, nothing changes this time.

Adding Wiese again. Doubt he'd make the team, since there is a glutton of bottom 6 players, but if he impresses in the minors this season, he'll have a greater chance of being on the roster next season without Avery or Feds to take a spot from him.

Yep, this is Kundratek. He may end up being the better of the 3rd round picks in the 2008 draft.

Kundratek. Although Yogan has intriguing upside, his injury really set his development back last season. He still could turn into a Ryan Malone, or he could be a Lee Farladeau. Kundratek seems to be progressing well.

Add Jason Wilson. As someone said in a previous thread, Weise might pan out as another Jason Ward if he cracks the NHL. I'd rather have Wilson's toughness in that type of player.

I'm very intrigued by Blake Parlett. It will be very interesting to see how he plays this year in Hartford.

Fogarty. His upside is over anyone else left in this right now.

How a player like Kundratek has fallen this far is mind-blowing to me.

Add Jason Wilson.

Also, Fogarty should not be in the top-15....

He's a better defenseman than Valentenko, who seems to be the new prospect du jour.

It's not just his size, it's his size coupled with the fact that he's already shown a predisposition to concussions. He's already getting killed by physical play in the QMJHL, which doesn't bode well for him as he progresses to the professional game.

If he plays well and stays healthy in Hartford this year, I'll happily move him up a few slots in my personal rankings.

I'm also still shocked McIlrath is so high...his ceiling the way it looks is a rough housing 2nd pair defenseman and the way he's progressed so far says he's on a fast track to not cutting it in the NHL. Not close to making the NHL, and the potential to do what? I don't think his size alone makes him more valuable than some of the guys he's above, and that's all he has going for him right now.
