Holy ****. Two seconds is a lot for Douglas Murray.

Quick, Sather. Trade Boyle and Pyatt while they still have some value!

I have no issue with the Pens trading away their future for guys like Morrow/Murray.

Exactly this. I now really wonder what Boyle and Pyatt could return.

The Sharks got two second round picks but the second pick is conditional if Murray doesn't re-sign with Pens. #NHL

Elias - Zajac - Clarkson
Henrique - Loktionov - D'Agostini
Carter - Gionta - Bernier
Pesonen - Sestito - Kostopoulos

yikes. You just know they'll keep picking up points somehow, though. Playoff race is gonna be a tight one. Washington now picking up steam.

The #flyers say Danny Briere is out indefinitely with a concussion.
There is no reason, literally zero, for the Rangers not to make the playoffs. The Flyers are terrible. The Canes have been without their starting goalie. The Caps were horrid to start the season. Kovalchuk is out. Briere is out. Letang is out. What is the excuse?

You're so right, but this team keeps proving time and time again that they are not interested in taking advantage of weakened teams. We have to be the most charitable organization outside of the friggin' Red Cross.

Yep. Their 4th line last year is their 3rd line this year.

Great post! It's always refreshing to hear from another Ranger's fan who has been around the block and knows full well of managements ineptitude over the years going back to the 60's. It is mind boggling and beyond comical at times when some of these obviously young fans who post here continually wax poetic and look at every move(draft, trades, etcetera) as wonderful as if Sather is a wizard when in reality, the game has in fact passed him by about 15 years ago.

Well done pal!

If you can find me these posts that shine Sather's statue, then I'll agree. Otherwise, he is easily the most hated man in the history of this organization. I don't think you need to be 60 or 15 to understand that.

I'll give Sather credit in that he generally makes some good trades, other than that, I've been waiting for the day he leaves town with one of the cliched hobo bandanna packages tied to a stick.

It is hard to go around bragging about how many series your team has won...when they come back with how many Cups they have won since they have been in the league . Now that is a counter argument !

Hey...my brother is an Islander fan....I know all about it guys and I am surrounded by Hab fans...so I hear it everyday there too . We have been possibly the worse US based franchise in NHL History .

It is going to take a long time to turn things around with so much parity in the NHL these days . For Decades we had more money to spend than everybody else...that is a luxury no longer afforded us . We have 1 stinking Cup to show for it because our management has been so inept in it's long term thinking and as long as the current management exists...we are moving further away from it .

I guess that this should have been posted in the Sather or Torts thread .
Reading your posts is so refreshingly honest; nice to see and hear from a longtime fan who feels the same exact way that I and most of my friends feel about the Ranger's inept management over the many years that we have been die hard fans attending games back in the good old days of the garden on 49th street and 8th ave.

One(1) Stanley Cup in almost 73 years should be statement enough on how poorly this team has been managed since my childhood(and I've been going to Ranger's games since 1960).

You don't get it?? The Black Hawks GM is Stan Bowman and we have Glen Sather! No more Willard Wirtz to screw things up for them.
That alone should be reeason enough for you "To Get It!"

There is no comparison the last 5 years and going forward between the Black Hawks and the Rangers; we have, are and will continue to be in their rearview mirror!!

A 2nd for Murray is fair. He's worth more like a 3rd on talent alone, but when you figure more than a few teams must have been interested, that drives up the price.

I doubt Pitt resigns him, that second 2nd rounder is too much. They will let him walk and sign another Dman.

Or they could draft a tough defensive Dman and wait 4 or 5 years for him to make an impact.

I think there is a chance card with the Monopoly guy as a hobo avec bandana sack. Can someone of talent here put Sather's head on that?

The excuse is that this isn't a very good hockey team this season. I can't imagine how anyone who has watched the games could argue otherwise.

The pick is still a third even if they don't re-sign him.

As much as we suck, and I don't care much for excuses, but we've never had the draft positioning that teams like Chicago, NYI, Edmonton, Pittsburgh or Washington have had.

True enough but we have also botched many of the picks that we've had. Particularly while Maloney was in charge of our drafting.
