Where did you get the at least 3-4 free agents?Glen Sather hasn't uttered a word in months.Tom Renney and Don Maloney have both indicated the Rangers will be a younger team in 2006-07 than they were in 2005-06

Sandis Ozolinsh?You don't know his status.He hasn't been suspended by the NHL.Larry Brooks wrote about the Rangers different options when Ozo was arrested by the police for DUI but then again you don't think Brooks is barely ever right
why dont you think about sather's track record as the rangers GM, every off season he signs 3-4 free agents, this team made the playoffs, and you think now he is going to stop? this team can still retool and sign UFA's as long as they only sign 1-2 of them to longer term deals because in 2 seasons none of our veteran players will be under contract so its certainly plausible to sign ufa's and retool, and if you think sather isnt going to sign 3-4 UFA's you are wrong. also with the UFA's he is going to bring in (guys like chara/mckee/markhov/asham/mcCauley/etc) who are not over the hill 34 year olds, this team can sign one older ufa and the rest late 20's early 30's and become a younger team. ranger fans got a taste for the playoffs in their mouth again and sather is going to do everything he can to make sure next season's team will get their as well, im sorry i don't buy that we are in a true "rebuild" because how many rebuilding teams have no players under 30 in their top 6 forwards and 1 defensemen under the age of 30 in their top 6 defensemen? we are not in a true rebuild, we are retooling. sather will be very active in UFA

ozo's status, well for starters he will be suspended/rehab for 6 months, he is a second time offender, he is not going to start the season with the rangers, and after his disappointing performance and DUI i cant see anyway that he is back here, he was terrible in the playoffs and pretty much an embarassment to the team
