It was and remains an issue of Sather's mismanagment of Ranger assets..

Both Dunham and Zidlicky were playing very well at the beginning of the year, and have tailed off since..

But the point remains, three assets were squandered for a goalie who has played well, but could not change the fortunes of a team that needed a change in the core for the future, NOT 1 player to try to sneak them into the 8th seed..

The point was not to tout Zidlicky, it was to use him as Exhibit A of how Sather has misused players like him and bundle a few to send away for single players that cannot make this team any better than its dysfunctional core..
Davasian you say the point was not to tout Zidlicky - c'mon now, the guy started off really hot and a post was started to see how good he was going to be. Why not start a Pavel Brendl thread then, he could be Exhibit B.
- Dunham was not acquired to "turn" the fortunes of the team around. We were hard up for a #1 goaltender and leaving that responsibility up to a 19 yr old goalie who was not ready is just setting up the young man up for failure.

BTW I'm not pro or anti - Sather, just a Ranger fan with hope and faith.
