Pavel Buchnevich the shining star of Rangers pipeline

After ranking the top 100 NHL prospects for 2015-16, and ranking each team by organizational depth, ESPN Insider Corey Pronman ranks the top 10 prospects for each NHL team. Here is his entry for the New York Rangers. Extended write-ups on prospects ranked in the top 100 can be accessed here.

The Rangers' system has suffered lately from several trades that have stripped the system of either top prospects or draft picks for their scouts to use to acquire top guys. As it stands now, their pipeline's depth in "solid" players is arguably above average, but aside from Pavel Buchnevich (No. 14 on my top 100) there's nobody that really stands out as elite.
