Sather's off-season - impressive

I have been one of the biggest Sather bashers on this board. However, I have always given credit when and where due.

Glen Sather's summer of 2010 has been nothing short of impressive and that's taking into considration the Boogaard contract.

Signed MZA to a very cap friendly 2 year deal.

Got both Stepan and McD to come out of College when everyone thought they were headed back to take care of some unfinished business

Went against the grain at the draft and selected a monster defenceman that the team needs (I disagreed with the pick, but I have come around since)

Signed Girardi to a very solid 4 year deal

Brought back Prospal at a reduced deal.

Now, he's got the 2nd best winger available on the UFA market for less than market value.

He's got 2 more things to take care of.

Sign Staal before this gets really risky

Then, the cherry on this summer sundae is going to be waiving Redden and sending him packing freeing up a very much needed 6+ million in cap space.

He does both and this will be a very VERY solid summer for the Rangers.
