When asked about the trade deadline on Monday, he emphasized the importance of not losing any prospects:
If the Nash trade went down for the package that Brooks reported, it would be a departure from the philosophy and process that Torts has instilled. While Sather has taken a step back and let others in the organization take over when it comes to drafting, I think he was the one running the ship in trying to land Nash.
The quote from Torts above is very important. And it's been repeated on numerous occasions. By Torts and every senior person in the ORG.
What's interesting is that the importance of keeping the kids together gets down played fairly often here. Especially when a "Big Name" becomes available.
Big names rarely work out for the Rangers. The kids we keep and bring thru the system appear to have a far better track record. Just my 2 cents.
