Glad I was wrong on the last part!
There were quite a few of us Sauer fan club members that were worried last summer he wouldn't got a shot with the Rangers. Admittedly, it was his waiver status that gave him a leg up on McDonagh and Valentenko coming out of camp. But, he deserves full marks for taking advantage of the situation and making the most of it. I expect even bigger things from him this year. Unlike MDZ, Sauer appears to be at a more mature stage of his career.
