Jeff Gorton hired as Rangers' assistant GM

Jeff Gorton hired as Rangers' assistant GM, Post has learned. Gorton signed Chara as FA as interim GM of B's, dealt Raycroft for Rask.
Absolutely great promotion. Gorton would be my choice as heir apparent to Sather right now. Hopefully no one steals him away with a GM job before Sather decides to pack it up.

Can't believe RangerBoy didn't break this one

An awesome move for the front office.

I don't know what the difference is/was but Messier was special assistant to GM.

Solid move, but where does this leave Messier.. I was under the impression that once Sather is out, Mess would step in, but this opens up other possibilities.

I'd rather Gorton be the eventual replacement to Sather than Messier. Gorton made a bunch of the moves that resulted in the Bruins being Cup champs.

Cam Hope and Jim Schoenfeld are the other two assistant GMs, though they both have niches--Hockey Administration and Player Personnel, respectively. They'll probably just create a new title for Gorton.

I don't think that it changes anything one way or another with Messier's situation. Gorton will be one of three assistant GMs.

Possibly. If that's the case, I guess Gorton is Hope's replacement.

Cam Hope is actually leaving, although I doubt Gorton is simply "taking" his position, as I believe Hope was focused primarily on cap compliance.

No need to break this. Already been banging the Gorton drum for almost 4 years. Sather smartened up and gave Gorton more responsibility.

This is the big news of the day, IMO. Locking up Gorton for the long term and putting him in line for better things is a great move by the Rangers.

just love the direction that the team is going in. really ever since torts was hired (not giving him credit for this), some great decisions have been made.

Haha I know man I've been reading all your posts on Gorton and finally when he gets the nod I just thought it would be you to bring to HF

Very solid move by NYR. Gorton knows his stuff and I am sure he will still be an integral part of the scouting department with Clark.

I thought something was up when Brodie Dupont told Bruce Berlet that Gorton informed him about the trade and thanked for his service.

Great signing and the logical choice. Clarke is too important to scouting.

The popular Wolf Pack / Whale forward received the news from Ranger’s Assistant Director, Player Personnel Jeff Gorton who told Dupont that his service was appreciated and that he’d been traded. “This was the first time I’ve ever been traded so I’m a little in shock.”
http://howlings.net/2011/07/02/brodie-dupont-traded/

Schoenfeld called Dupont later.

On the 2nd day of the NHL draft. NHL Network had a shot of the Rangers table with Gorton at the head of the table with Messier sitting right next to him. They were looking at Gorton's laptop.
