End of the line for Sather?

Globe and Mail sports podcast

ESPN Pierre LeBrun,Eric Duhatschek and James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail

LeBrun reported Glen Sather is reaching the end of his contract and which is not a small thing considering how much money Sather makes. More speculation/discussion on Sather's future this season than previous seasons.

Duhatschek feels Messier will receive more responsibility and then take over.

LeBrun feels Sather will be phased out

They discussed the Flames situation. LeBrun pointed out the Rangers and Flames need a #1 center. Both teams tried Olli Jokinen and he wasn't the answer.

Messier named Doug Risebrough as his top lieutenant for the Canadian management team. Perhaps Messier becomes the GM this summer and Risebrough is hired as his right hand. An experienced NHL exec. VP of Hockey Operations. Risebrough was Sather's #2 in Edmonton when Edmonton became a playoff team in the late 1990's.

Replace Schoenfeld with Messier as AGM and then Messier takes over next summer.
