As I said, Sather has left us no choice. We're going to overpay Hank for eight years because we have no other options. If you haven't seen my posts ridiculing Sather's GM acumen, you have not been paying attention.

We've accomplished little in eight years with Hank in goal...not blaming Hank, but the whole plan (or the different plan year to year) is not working. But I guess we're sticking with the plan...eight more years of moaning about Hank being great but not having enough support.
You are insinuating here that letting our best player, by far, walk is somehow going to put the team on the right path. When, in all likelihood, it will just lead to more of the same crap roster building without the team's best player in decades.

Unless Gorton is officially named GM, and the Rangers plan is to tear it all down (which it wont be), I don't understand this line of thinking.
