At Hockey’s Future, Leslie Treff lists the Rangers top 20 prospects.

She has Chris Kreider first, Christian Thomas second and Tim Erixon third.

On Christian Thomas,  Treff says “Thomas will need to get much stronger to play in the NHL. If he accomplishes this without compromising his speed, Thomas has the potential to be a first line player.”

The fan rankings that I compiled a few weeks back had Chris Kreider, Tim Erixon and Christian Thomas at the top three. I look at Treff’s top three and see someone who is extremely high on Christian Thomas. I also look at Ryan McDonagh, who isn’t a prospect anymore, being ranked behind Tim Erixon as a showing of the player that Erixon can be. I also love that Jesper Fasth took such a big leap up in the rankings.

Part of me sees JT Miller taking over the number two spot in the spring edition….
