Hockeys Future has come out with their 2009-2010 organizational rankings, which ranks all 30 NHL clubs farm systems. The Rangers come in at #3, which, suffice it to say, is very very good. It’s a good read, and notes the blueline strength of the Rangers as the biggest asset, while goaltending depth as the most glaring hole to fill.
The good thing here is that of the top 5 prospects in the Rangers system, only two (Artem Anisimov, Michael Del Zotto) are going to “graduate” next season, so there’s still a very good opportunity for the Rangers to be in the top 5 next year as well.
Remember that rebuild that everyone was so adamant about? Well, it’s happening right before your eyes. The future looks bright.
S/t to Mike Axisa for bringing this to our attention.
