Is it just me or is Sather loading up on players w/ no more than 3rd/4th line potential? Ortmeyer and Murray have ceilings of 3rd liners. The edmonton trade brought back a guy who projects to be a Marchant type of 3rd liner. Now this trade w/ Calgary brings back one who looks to be yet another 3rd liner and one that MAY be a 4th liner.
One would think with the Rangers missing the playoffs for 4 straight years, that there would be ONE blue chip prospect around. Instead we have Tyutin (don't quite know if he's "blue-chip" or not) and Jessiman, who is a HUGE project. Jessiman won't pay dividends for another 4 years, as power forwards take much longer to develop (look at Bertuzzi, Prims, and Doan for proof).
Now half of our trades have netted us more 3rd liners.
