I could see Sather breaking with his past if Phaneuf were actually available simply because I think there's still enough voices in the room who loved him in his draft year. The guy has the physicality the Rangers lack on the blueline and would give us another PP point option. If he's available, I think Sather finds cap room and Avery would be a casualty if need be.
Well thought out post. To his credit, Sather hasn't stripped the team of draft choices in bring in help for the playoffs. I'm sure he is taking stock of organization assets right now to see who might be a moveable asset at the trade deadline. Unless a premium player becomes available, I doubt if we'll see a top prospect moved.

But let's also remember that part of the reason the team is struggling is that young players haven't developed as quickly or reached as high a ceiling as we all hoped. We have a good young core but unfortunately it's not a great young core. A lot of guys we hoped would be in the NHL or having breakout years are OK, not great. Getting young and giving players on the job training isn't guaranteed to work.

Darren Dregger on NHL Network just listed the Rangers as Buyers.

Mentioning Glen Sather always wants to do something singificant.

The real reason is that Glen won't be fired and Glen is an imbecile and that's why we'll be buyers

can drury be traded?

do you think a team would be willing to take on his cap hit for the playoffs? 8 mil next year and five after. I'm thinking there has to be at least one team that would pay him that for a chance at a serious run for the cup.

Thoughts?

I lol`ed. The only way i see him being traded is if he waived his clause and being traded for another horrid contract.
