I think to a certain degree the Canadian based press are more interested in pimping their own players rather than the ones south of the border.

Then you have the notion that NY is buying the team much like they used to do. This is probably a combination of Richards choosing NY and that NY has been guilty of this in the past. Lets look no farther than Wade Redden eh ?

Add to it the lack of statistical diligence such as the GAA, blocked shots, overall age of the blueline in rangers land.

Sauer has been excellent. I think the hip surgery he had really helped shape his game. By avoiding injury he got his shot at the pro level, didn't drop the ball nor get hurt. Combined with the fact that he fit what NY was looking for which was a physical 2nd pairing guy.

I hope he isn't hurt too badly and that the Crosby situation has most clubs or their players NOT rushing to return to the rink.
