is gone in any deal for a defenceman.
As Big Bill stated, the Hurricanes are going to be looking for a defenceman if in fact they are dealing yet another one so Tjutin may also be a possibility. Another real possibility is Blackburn getting dealt. The kid in the SEL is awesome and has probably made Danny expendable (what expendable mean?? Rambo flashback)
As for those that argue that Sather has rebuilt the system, please provide this proof.
I'll use this very site to counter.
Prior to Neil SMith getting the ax, the Rangers were ranked, on this very site I might add, 8th overall in terms of prospect depth.
Today they are ranked 28th.
The drop started after Sather took over. They had infact climbed from 11th the year before NS got fired, to 8th the year he did get the ax.
Additionally in all of NS years as GM the Rangers missed the PO's for a total of 4 times. that's covering almost 8 years, maybe 9.
Sather is on the verge of missing the PO's for the 4th time in 4 years. One would expect that the team and system would have benefitted from such high draft choices over the last 6 years. Unfortunately other teams have good GM's, we have Sather....
