Rosenvold Posted April 26, 2017 Share Posted April 26, 2017 I hope I'm not overstepping any rules in here and perhaps the timing is off, but I missed some discussion and insight on the Rangers prospect pool before the coming summer with the first 1st-rounder in ages. I tried to compile a quick list of the best current prospects and their expected potential rating from what I've heard and seen: Goalies Igor Shestyorkin - A Brandon Halverson - D Defence Ryan Graves - B Sean Day - B Sergey Zborovsky - C Tarmo Reunanen - D Calle Andersson - F Alexei Bereglazov - B Center Cristoval Nieves - C Adam Tambellini - D Gabe Fontaine - D Brad Morrison - D Left Wing Robin Kovacs - C Ryan Gropp - D Tim Gettinger - F Right Wing Malte Stromwall - D Daniel Bernhardt - F It's not really fair to talk about "holes" in the prospect pool - the Rangers need improvement in all departements except between the pipes. But they will only have one shot in the rifle in the draft, so I imagine they will go for a forward, although there are so many talented D-men in the late 1st round. I'm hoping for someone like Elias Pettersson or Kristian Vesalainen to drop a little and be possible targets for the Rangers, but I'm Scandinavian and probably not entirely unbiased here :D Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
