Michael Barnett leaves NYR front office

Barnett left the Rangers front office to spend more time with his family. He was the Rangers director of U.S. amateur scouting and a senior advisor to Sather. Barnett is still listed in that role on the Rangers site. Barnett made his decision 2 weeks ago.

Quote:
Mike Barnett, once the most-prominent agent in the hockey business and one of the most powerful people in the sport, has stepped away from the game.

Barnett, who was Wayne Gretzky's agent for 21 years, has left the employ of the NHL's New York Rangers in order to spend more time with his wife, Julianna, and four daughters in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Not good, but at least he's not working for another GM.
Presumably we get dibs on his return if he decides to come back later.

Can't blame him. His wife is quite hot. Well, she certainly was at least 10 yrs ago.

So this is the guy who has been leading Sather to draft:

Stepan
Kreider
Bourque
Miller
Fogarty

That's a big loss because the Rangers have been finding very good players from the 'States' later in the round.

Head of US Amateur Scouting for the NY Rangers. Do you read? Every US amateur that is scouted but he Rangers ends up in a profile on his desk. He was responsible for the drafting of those players.

You never seem to read that garbage men leave their jobs to spend more time with their families.

One gets paid around $40,000-$60,000 a year (with no overtime unless it snows), the other makes that amount in the matter of weeks.

Barnett wasn't in the Rangers organization when Stepan was drafted. Clark and Gorton are responsible for the player selections. They have the final authority. Not Barnett.
