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.
Actually the line was not together the second half of the season. Mostly it was Hossa-Nylander-Jagr and when Hossa was out it was the infamous Isbister-Nylader-Jagr line.
