Hockey’s Future is ranking the prospect systems of NHL teams and have the Rangers ranked 17th.
Speed, and building a team around it, is one of the Rangers strengths as well as a solid group of defensive prospects.
The main weakness they say the Rangers system is continues to be the lack of top goalie prospects and a plan to succeed Henrik Lundqvist. They also say that the Rangers don’t have a number one center in their system.
In May, when Carl Hagelin still counted and Tim Erixon was on the team, the Rangers were ranked 11th by Hockey’s Future.
Over the summer they were ranked 13th by ESPN.
