Cherepanov, died. Not Sather's fault.
Sanguinetti, Del Zotto, Grachev, Anisimov are all developing EXACTLY as planned.
Prucha scored 30 in his rookie season. His drop off has NOTHING to do with Sather.
Dawes still has a chance to be a solid NHL player.
The list of GOOD moves goes on and on. The real issue is that people only focus and scrutinize the bad.
Got news for you. NO GM makes 100% great moves. They make bad decisions 50% of the time.
What ever issues the current NHL roster has, can be somewhat fixed by the trade deadline.
The list of good things goes on and on and on? Oh brother, ok lets go into this.
Girardi-Good signing for sure
Cherapanov- No one knows how he would have turned out.
Sangs, DZ, Grachev, and Anisimov are developing nicely? Great I heard the same thing about Brendl, Lundmark, Dube, Malhotra, Sundstrom, Jessiman, Montoya, and all the other can't miss Ranger gems in the past years. Till they make the NHL and have an impact they are what they are, prospects and not elite ones at that.
Did you really just mention Prucha and Dawes? These guys are in limbo. They aren't producing in the NHL, they have to go through waivers to be sent down, and their play has lowered thier trade value by a large margin.
Zherdev trade was good but it wasn't like we really hosed CLB, we gave up a good young dman in Tyutin really to make up for his bone head selection of Jessiman.
Jagr trade he was 2 years late on cause he was out golfing before he felt like being a lion and trading our best prospect at the time (Brendl), one of our better dmen (Johnsson), and a winger who performed well here (Hlavac) for Eric Lindros who had a history of injuries. This mind you after he traded our picks for no leg Bure a year or two back. Is this still some of the great moves that go on and on?
I'm not even going to go into how many coaches he has gone through or the walkie talkie thing or the Leetch trade or the other horrible trades he made at that deadline or letting Umberger walk or terrible signings. Any other GM not names Glen Sather is history 4 years ago, he has a job because of his name, well that and our owner is an idiot as well.
