Lindberg did really well in terms of most recent but didn't make the team anyway.
These guys are also playing against prospects of other teams. The competition pales in comparison to what they will face in the NHL. Training camp will be a better indicator of how these young guys stack up.

Rangers lose final game 6-4, end up in 4th. Goals by Vesey(2) and Day(2)
Vesey is playing against children. At least he's showing he's better than lesser competition. Still nothing to be too excited about yet, IMO.
Agreed, but it's good to see how he is on nhl sized ice. Buch played well too, more excited to see him in training camp as well as pre season.
The team overall is still probably going to suck, but should be at fun watching him and Buch this season. I think Vessey will outscore Pavel by at least 20 points. Buchnevich might be as skilled, but he's way too floaty without the puck.
NHL Fluff Piece on who stood out in the tourney, but what ever:
Cristoval Nieves, C, New York Rangers: Nieves (6-3, 210) did a little bit of everything and was quick and strong in all three zones. He had one goal, three points and six shots in three-plus games. Nieves sustained an upper-body injury in the first period of the third-place game Tuesday and was unable to play the final two periods. He's set to begin his first full season in Hartford (AHL) after spending four seasons at the University of Michigan.Jimmy Vesey, LW, New York Rangers: Vesey (6-3, 203) led all tournament scorers with five goals and 20 shots, and finished with seven points and a plus-1 rating in four games for the fourth-place Rangers. He has the speed and smarts and wasn't a bit intimidated when pushed to the limit in certain situations. Vesey consistently drove the net, an indication that he will do anything to create a scoring chance in the key areas.
I didn't realize Vesey had grown. He listed as much smaller on Hockey DB.
