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.
The line of thinking I simply cannot buy into is 'let's not give Sather more cap room, because he'll just screw it up anyway'. If that's the case, why are we even bothering to discuss anything here.

Nothing needs to be torn down...but we do need better decisions from our GM.

While it needs to at least be mentioned that other teams have managed to win Stanley Cups with goaltenders not named Henrik Lundqvist (our teams playoff record with Hank in goal is a very mediocre 5-7), I am not advocating letting Hank walk...we have no choice now but to sign him.
