CBS Sports ranks the Home-Grown Teams (three lines, two defensive pairs and two goaltenders) of all 30 franchises and puts the Rangers at #12. These lineups don't include undrafted free agents, only drafted players.

So what does the Rangers line-up look like...

Ryan Callahan-Brandon Dubinsky-Carl Hagelin
Artem Anisimov-Derek Stepan-Chris Kreider
Lauri Korpioski-Dominic Moore-Nigel Dawes

Marc Staal - Michael Del Zotto
Fedor Tyutin - Marek Zidlicky

Henrik Lundqvist - Al Montoya

...one thing really lacking with this lineup is a big time offensive star. But in the Rangers defense, when you're always drafting in the middle of the pack it's very hard to find that elite player. Hoping Kreider is the exception.

...man that Zidlicky for Tomas Kloucek and Mike Dunham deal was awful. Almost as bad as Tyutin for Zherdev.

...i know this ranking means absolutely nothing, but with players such as Miller, Bourque, Thomas, St. Croix and McIlrath expected to make the club in the next few years, this home-grown line-up will only grow stronger.

...thoughts? Anyone left off?
