12. Derick Brassard, C #16

Now here’s where the Rangers depth really shows up as Derick Brassard comes in as the No. 12 guy.

He has all the qualities to be in the top-five, but hasn’t been a monster as of late. He still leads the team with 41 assists and will be leaned heavily upon to keep setting up Rick Nash.

11. Dan Girardi, RD #5

One of the more reliable leaders on the squad is Dan Girardi.

Amazingly enough, there are two defenseman who rank ahead of the man who has 20 points and a +12 during the campaign. He’ll look to rebound from a pretty poor (for his standards) postseason last spring.

10. Cam Talbot, G #33

It’s truly amazing that one hockey team could have two goalies in their top 10, but with Cam Talbot as a backup that’s exactly what the Rangers Power Rankings look like.

The Steven Mcdonald Extra Effort award winner is the best backup goalie in all the land and the catalyst for why this team has won the Presidents’ Trophy. His play was no fluke as you witnessed it with your own eyes. Spectacular plays and one of the filthiest gloves in the league, Talbot is a burgeoning star.

9. Dominic Moore, C #28

Dominic Moore continues to plug along as the most unheralded player on the team.

What the 34-year old center does receives very little credit. That is, until, he comes out of the lineup. Moore is one of the more valuable guys on the team. His penalty killing is spectacular and represents the only real faceoff man on the team.

Next: No. 8 to 5
