New Rankings for Rangers Prospects

by Brandon LeBourveau
on
Well, it’s been half a year since the rankings have been updated but the waiting is finally over. Here’s a quick run down on how these rankings were produced: Evan, Edge and Brandon each made their own top 20 list. From there, Brandon awarded points to each prospect on each writers’ list. The 1st ranked prospect got 20 points, and so on down the line until the 20th prospect got 1 point. All the points were added up from the three lists, and after assorting the prospects from most points received to the least, we were able to form these final rankings. If there were any ties, the tie-breaker was who appeared on more lists, or who had the highest average ranking.

Finally we’re on to the rankings. Leave all comments below! Info on the prospects were provided by Edge and Brandon.

1. Dan Blackburn, Goaltender, New York Rangers
The 10th overall selection in the 2001 Entry Draft, Blackburn was ranked as the number 1 prospect by all three writers and was the easy choice for this spot. His emergence this season as a definite NHL caliber goalie and a potential all-star has made many fans and scouts drool over this youngsters potential. Fans are still thanking the Chicago Blackhawks for passing up on him to take Tuomo Ruutu, although Ruutu also happens to be a great talent. Expect many great things from Danny Blackburn in the future.

Ponikarovsky demoted

The Kid Can Play

Don’t be mislead by the demotion, Alexei Ponikarovsky can play hockey at the NHL level and the Leafs brass know it. The last time he was called up he was given a number more akin to a football running back, while this time he carried #22 on his back. But it goes much farther than that. Originally just an emergency fill-in for Shayne Corson, Alexander Mogilny’s back spasms allowed Toronto to take a longer look at his play at the pro level. Normally a call up from The Rock can expect to see fourth line duty and maybe two shifts a period. Not so with the Big Uke. While it is true he did start there, by the end of his stint with the big club he was skating alongside Darcy Tucker and Corson ahead of Travis Green and didn’t look out of place.

With Mogilny and possibly Gary Valk due back from the sicklist however, somebody was going to have to sit in the pressbox. Rather than have Ponikarovsky stagnate on the west coast trip, a return ticket to St. John’s guaranteed him plenty of icetime among the Baby Leafs top six forwards. Will he be back before the end of the year? It’s tough to say.

Ponikarovsky’s game brings more to the table than either Valk’s or Green’s right now. It’s entirely possible with 20 more matches with third line icetime he may well improve to a point where he could surpass Hoglund and Domi as well. That said, the only players that might be movable on the trade market out of those four would be Green and Hoglund and even the return on them would be minimal. However, three of this group, Valk , Domi, and Hoglund, ar Read more»
