Glen Sather, are you in my Xbox?
funny thing is the first trade i was offered was Souray and Allen to Rangers for Yogan Hrivik 2ed Evander Kane is my highest paid player not including Lundqvist..

What goes through his head when he just shells out all that $$$ and has jack **** to show for it. So long as the profits keep coming in is all that matters to him, clearly winning in any way shape or form comes second.
He's too busy opening for the Eagles. Seriously. He shelled out millions to purchase the Eagles management company, apparently so his crappy band could open for them.

Nothing to show for it? He has two franchises with a combined 2 billion dollars.

Careful what you wish for though. Dolan is actually involved in the Knicks, and they are run 10 times worse than the Rangers for it. As much as I would like Sather to face a little accountability, that may in fact end up being worse.

Well, what's the alternative? Messier? Regier? Sather needs to go pronto (IDK about Gorton), but who's the best available GM out there?

Although people in sports always thank the fans and say how important they are, that's just marketing BS. In the end the GMs don't have an obligation to the fans, they have one to share holders. If the fans truly mattered, we wouldn't have lockouts.

Fans are nothing more than drug addicts in need of another hit. The dealers, really don't care that much, so long as we're still hooked.

Would you rather Slats and Dolan get out there like Holmgren and Snider and make it obvious they really don't give a s**t?

That's what I used to think for years now. In the end, Jim Nill would have been nice. Would have loved to have seen JD come back to run the Rangers, the guy is smart and is hired as the cleaner to fix broken franchises. To that extent Jarmo Kekäläinen, would have been nice to add as well. Would Håkan Andersson make a good GM? Pat Lafontaine is going to do some serious work in Buffalo, he could have done it in NYC. Stevie-Y is making positive changes in Tampa. But all these ships have sailed, so now, who's next?

I'd start by taking close looks at guys tapped by Hockey Canada to build teams that go on to be successful.

Maybe it's time to stop with the "best available" mentality with this franchise. It's hight time that someone associated with the organization do some hard work, find talent, evaluate it and then pick the right candidate.

People on this board could do a better and more thorough search than anyone currently in the NYR front office.

Why, if the guy likes what he's doing and his healthy isn't holding him back, why would he give up what's probably the most lucrative GM position in the NHL?
