To give Sather credit, this was actually one of the things he talked about when first came to the Rangers. He specifically stated that one of his goals was to develop a steady flow of young talent in the pipeline. Now, the awful drafting of the first half of his tenure made it difficult to accomplish this task. Fortunately, it seems to have kicked into high gear as Clark and Gorton have assumed full control over the operation. But, installing the post draft camp, and the participation in Traverse City have helped to create a stronger loyalty in the Ranger prospects, as well as a bond with their future teammates. I don't think it's any coincidence that the core group of Staal, Girardi, Callahan and Dubinsky have been playing together since they entered the organization, which has led to how tight this group is.
