If Sather was smart, he'd declare victory and go home.

The next several years are going to be difficult for the league in general and the Rangers in particular. The salary cap will go down sooner or later and the Rangers won't have a lot of room to manuver. It's hard to dump contracts without picking up nearly equal amounts of salary and given the economic climate (no room for big increases in ticket prices) it would be hard to justify buying out a player with 4+ years to go on their contract, especially since some of the salary will count for years against the cap.

It's going to be no fun at all.
