Even if we wait, I don't see Sather working any trade magic. He may have very well impressed us with getting Gabby, Getting Jagr, but the other things were major busts for the money we gave them, and those were huge mistakes that have set our team back. I was crying foul with the money he gave Gomez and Drury the time they were signed. Was I excited, yes I was. But was I happy with the amount they were paid, no.
I honestly don't see any hope with Sather in the hotseat anymore. If Dolan doesn't fire him, I'm seriously considering dropping the Rangers uniform. We are the most loyal fans, get consistent sell outs, and we end up with this crap of a general manager? We should have been in the Stanley Cup Finals by now with the pace we had set in the beginning when we just had the return to the playoffs.
I gave up on the Knicks a long time ago, I will give up sadly for my Rangers as well if Sather is still here at the end of this year. I will always love the team's jersey and its history (the only fact that it is an original six team), but I simply can't wait another 20 years for a cup.
I'll just focus on my medical school work and finding a nice wife for now. Maybe I'll be back on the boards in five years.

honestly though that was a very assessment of this team, its exactly where we thought it would be, lacking secondary scoring
i still see hope in the future for this team. If sather continues to develop this team in a direction (doesn't matter if you necessarily agree with the Torts direction) we will field a strong contender in the next few years, the foundation is there already
a couple things will be key:
- realizing that this is NOT a cup year and making most out of the trade deadline
- Grachev turning into the caliber of player we banking on Cheriponov becoming
- proper use of our stockpile of defensive prospects....find out which ones are going to work here and get good returns on the rest
- Gaborik staying healthy
As for this year, Im pretty sure we'll still make the playoffs and its pretty imperative that we do actually....MDZ, Gilroy, and Anisimov need to experience NHL playoffs
