All things being equal

Friday night was an interesting evening for Ranger prospect as while players were productive, there wasn't anyone who really stood out. Maybe we have gotten so used to outstanding play from the prospects than on an average night it is hard to award stars.

That being said then for tonight we will cover the prospects not by how well they played but rather how long they have been a Ranger prospect. Perhaps that is right so the oldest of Ranger prospects do not get lost in the shuffle.

That being said we will start with Billy Ryan (2004 3rd) of the Maine Black Bears. Ryan got only his 2nd goal of the season as the Black Bears continued to struggle losing their 3rd straight 5-1 to one to Merrimack.

Jordan Foote (2004 6th) did not score as his Michigan Tech Huskies skated to a 1-1 overtime tie at Minnesota Duluth.

Greg Beller (2005 6th) was a healthy scratch once again for Yale and while Beller may be just a sophomore, the more Beller is scratched the less of a chance we give him for a future with the Rangers. We never like to see a prospect go though what Beller is going though but it is up to him to play his way back into the lineup.

Bobby Sanguinetti (2006 1st) scored his 16th goal of the year in regulation and another in the shoot out as his Brampton Battalion defeated the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 3-2 via the shoot out. Sanguinetti is also the focus of a nice write up at the OHL website by Aaron Bell.

Ryan Hillier (2006 3rd) also scored his 16th goal of the season as his Halifax Mooseheads won their 6th straight 6-4 over the Victoriaville Tigres. The win moved the Mooseheads past Cape Breton for first place in the QMJHL.

Tomas Zaborsky (2006 5th) did not score as his Saginaw Spirit gave up 2 late 3rd period goals and lost 4-3 to the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors.

Max Campbell (2007 5th) did not score as his Western Michigan Broncos dropped a 4-1 decision to Notre Dame and fell to 3-6.

Carl Hagelin (2007 6th) and his top ranked Michigan Wolverines had little trouble with the Lake Superior State Lakers winning 5-1 and Hagelin adding an assist.

David Skokan (2007 7th) missed another game with his groin injury as his Rimouski Oceanic edged the Quebec Remparts 5-4.

Danny Hobbs (2007 7th) had an assist but his Ohio Junior Bluejackets lost to Cedar Ra[pids 4-3.
