Guys clamouring for Brad Richards for 3 years...we get him, sign him to a ****** deal, every Ranger fans wants to blow him for taking a "cap friendly" deal...has a decent
1st year, now sucks and we have him just another 7 years.
Until the Rangers get rid of Sather....we will be the same half ass run organization.
We had a good thing going but Sather and Torts totally under estimated the importance of the bottom six guys we had last year and brought in a new crop and they have all sucked...we went for a rugged group to the biggest bunch of ******* in the league and 90% of this board will say that being rugged is overrated.
its not torts.. Torts coaches the team, provides some imput of how he likes his players and its glens job to build a team around how the coach coaches..the issue is glen playing hard ball with our UFAs/RFAs..
I am surprised our RFA's off ELC havent held out.. especially when our players.. MDZ, Callahan, Girardi, Dubi etc.. dont ask for more $$$. when around the league you have doughty making 7m, Meyers making 12m salary this year (5m cap) etc..
But most other teams would give raises but slats goes in the opposite directions gives players salarys lower then what they should be making based off performances.. did that with feds, mitchell, and i think most teams wouldve given prust the salary he commanded.. bc its not just stats, which rangers fans cant understand but their attitude and what they bring to the team.. intangibles are huge and mean a lot as well as points.. he completely abolished the bottom 6, but the real issue is the players we got havent stepped up and bought into torts.. this goes to show you the top 6 is just as important as the bottom 6.. we need to retool and build a team not sign every UFA available (Big names).. i wish we did the nash trade but didnt trade Dubi and signed prust, bc both those players wouldve been our "Glue" to hold that bottom 6 in check..
