Sorry, but I have to be the guy with blind faith towards Sather when it comes to cap room.
In each of the last three seasons, he's been helped by unexpected deletions off his salary cap.
Last year, it was Naslund retiring and Gomez being traded.
This year, it was deleting Kotalik
This offseason, i will personally ruck marck 25 miles with 80 pounds of gear in the summer heat if Sather has not found a way to shed one of Redden's, Rosie's, Drury's or Brashears contracts.
In fact, I'll even go as far as to say that I guarantee Redden's salary -- or most of it -- will be eradicated from the salary cap.
Now I'm not saying that he will do it to sign Kovalchuk.
All I'm saying is that we all get depressed, nervous and defeatist when it comes to our cap situation, then Sather comes out of left field and delivers.
Does that equate a recipe for a successful season? Not at all. But the Rangers' cap situation will be far from dire over the next two seasons, IMO
