9/16/15 | 4:39PM: Craig Custance spoke with an amateur scout from another team watching the Traverse City tournament and he said the following about some of the Rangers prospects who were playing. (ESPN Insider)
On Brady Skjei, the scout said that "he's big, can skate and is very efficient." He said that Skjei "won't bring you out of your seat" but he can take time and space away and is hard to get around. (ESPN Insider)
The scout said that Ryan Graves "has potential," Adam Tambellini is a "good project" and that defensemen Sergey Zborovskiy is a "great kid who works hard." (ESPN Insider)
On Ryan Gropp, the scout told Custance that he is an "intriguing player" and has good hands. (ESPN Insider)
On the lack of talent some people said the Rangers had in Traverse City, Jeff Gorton said that many of the team's prospects are playing in Europe right now or couldn't play due to injury. He said that the Rangers prospect system is not as "bare" as some people would think but that trading first round picks does take it's toll. (ESPN Insider)
Corey Pronman says that Ryan Gropp was the Rangers standout prospect in Traverse City and that while he wasn't "elite" he showed his above-average speed and puck skills. Pronman adds that he was "quite reliable" defensively."
Pronman notes Brad Morrison, Ryan Graves and Brady Skjei were also notable players."
