Sather has big balls. Blew up his very productive #1 line because it didnt fit the overall plan for the future.
Not too many GMs have balls like that. Especially in a town like NYC where things can get ugly quick if the team isnt winning.
All in all I will always remember that as one of the Great Ranger lines of all time. Short lived but fun to watch.
The line that wouldn't shoot....
In all seriousness, that was a fun line to watch. Like you said, short lived, but entertaining. A line that was instrumental in leading us back to the playoffs.
