The world tourneys are a much better benchmark,.. which is why Kreider is rated our top prospect. Fact is,..he hasn't done much in college play to earn his high rating.

But being Traverse Citys tournament is always scheduled just prior to training camp, it's a great stepping stone for the youngsters. And if they stand out in the tournament, they generally have a good shot in making the big club.

My first memories of hockey start with Jim, and I loved his style of play by play. Quick and sharp. He is def my fav.

It's amazing to think about when Staal, Duby, Cally, Arty, etc... all played in Traverse City. It just makes you feel that there are definitely going to be some guys (Thomas, McIlrath, Yogan perhaps) that end up making the Rangers roster as impact players. Yogan, although a different style of play, reminds me of Callahan as a darkhorse to make this team and one day be an impact player.

As far as the Rangers prospects go in this tournament,.. I don't think there will be any surprises. Thomas who played here last year with Stepan, will most likely shatter Step's Rangers point scoring record (8 pts) which he set last year. He's got 4 games to get 9 pts, which should be a cinch for him. Having played before in Michigan goes along way. Last year was Step's second time at Traverse City also. I feel Thomas will stand out above the rest.

Another who will excel in this tournament will be Erixon. Been playing with the men in Sweden. Also played in the mens WC. His experience will shine through. He should be very noticeable on D.

Thomas and Erixon will have a great showing in this tournament, and hopefully through training camp.

And I'll bet Stumpy and Jan, their dads, will be in the stands watching.

Another honorable mention is Dylan McIlrath. He most likely will be even more noticeable than Erixon, due to his size, strength and playing style. But the Rangers have decided to bring him along slowly, like they did with Marc Staal. He is destined to return to the juniors for at least another year. Without a doubt, our future #1 shut down D man. Move over Marc.

thats a whole lotta pressure on Thomas...to beat a kid who made the NHL right outta camp and had a pretty damn impressive rookie season? id be very happy if Thomas scores at a PPG rate.

Anyone know roughly what the lineup should shake out to be by line?

Nobody can really do anything but guess, but the prospect of a Hagelin-Miller-Thomas top line seems tempting.

Bourque, Yogan, McColgan would make a nice 2nd line and after that, St. Croix is really the only forward of interest.

I would really like to see what Yogan would be able to do on the top line. But yes, Thomas and Hagelin are definitely the most likely top line wingers.

5 Days!!

First time many of us will see our top prospects in action, this is really going to be a treat

Who is going to stand out?
Who is going to step up?
Who is going to crack under the pressure?

These and many more questions will be answered!

(yes im very excited!!)

I think Jason Wilson can bring some offense to the table. He'd be very effective with two of our more skilled players, and it will also spread out the talent.

Marchessault and Bourque can create offense as well.....

Bourque-Miller-Thomas
Hagelin-Yogan-McColgan
Marchessault-St. Croix-Wilson
Grant-Jordan-McNaught
Hicmottt-Kerbashian

Erixon-McIlrath
Ceresnak-Parlett
Baldwin-Bowman
Noreau-Niemi

Just a guess.....

Stajcer is awful, and predictably the third and 4th lines, as well as the 3rd pair D is very suspect.

But this is a prospects tourney so that is not exactly a deal-breaker. I think our kids have a good shot this year.

Top Rangers brass probably drooling over that.

Last season, Parlett quietly worked his way up from the ECHL and started to play VERY well in the AHL the same exact way Girardi did.

He is a better prospect right now than Niemi is.

And yeah, the Erixon-McIlrath pairing should be the best in the tournament...

One of the things I'm looking forward the most is seeing how much McI has progressed since last camp.

Oh, and also taking a look at Erixon for the first time since the WJCs.

And watching Christian Thomas score goals.

And watching Hagelin among pros for the first time.

........ And seeing if Yogan is ready for Hartford....... And seeing who is better of St Croix and McColgan....

Parlett had a big year last season to earn himself an NHL contract. He was an ECHL All Star and looked terrific in his stint with Hartford. Schoeny, Gorton and Clark are all very high on him, and I think it's fairly safe to say he has surpassed Niemi on the organizational depth chart. Parlett looks like he has some real NHL potential, whereas Niemi hasn't progressed much from his second year in Juniors.

Ah. Thanks for the insight. Do you have any idea how many years away Parlett is before he has a legitimate chance to crack the roster?

Tough to say. If he performs in Hartford as I think he's capable, then I'd figure he'd be ready to get a look sometime during the '12-'13 season. As with all the prospects in our system though, the numbers are against him at the moment. In his favor, though, is the fact that he's the best puck-moving defensive prospect in the system behind Del Zotto (I don't consider Erixon to be a prototypical PDM).

I see Bourque really standing out more so than Thomas -- that's probably just me though. I think his energy is going to allow for him to stand out more.

I'm going with Bourque and Erixon standing out the most in this tourney. Can't wait!

I would not be surprised to see Parlett up as early as this season to at least get a look. The guy put up points at a .5ppg clip in the AHL and in their 6 game playoff run and he is not only a puck-mover, he has some snarl to his game as well. Very good signing for the Rangers.

Niemi is a year younger so before we write him off we should see what he does this season, but he was not impressive last season.....

Yeah, I'm not writing Niemi off completely. It's just that he didn't progress from his second year in the WHL to his third, and didn't show a whole lot last year. He obviously still pretty young, but he needs to step it up or risk having no shot in our organization.
