Sather needs to realize this. He did a good job but he's not cut out for the NHL anymore. He has two cornerstone pieces in Lundqvist and McDonagh, maybe three if Stepan progresses. Lots of his former picks have value to other people.

If the Rangers win/contend for a Cup in three years under a different GM, it'll still have him imprint on it. Just like Theo with the 2013 Red Sox, the Dynasty Yankees with Stick and Watson, and the Acorsi with the 2007 Giants.
At 70 years old, one would think Sather will be stepping down sometime fairly soon.

But I promise you it wouldnt be because he feels hes no longer cut out for the NHL. Its why pride is one of the 7 deadly sins.
