The Rangers were ranked 9th in the fall.
They cite the Rangers strengths as their depth at forward and on defense with a weakness in goalie prospects.
They move up two spots and lose Derek Stepan and Michael Sauer to graduating. Mats Zuccarello and Ryan McDonagh still count even though they played a ton with the Rangers, and that helps the rankings, but it also says a lot about the depth of prospects. HF still has Chris Kreider ranked as the Rangers best prospect.
