None of us have any idea what happened so it's unfair to judge it. Not saying this is the case (again I'd have no way of knowing) but often when a superior is aloof then when he does speak people listen, and it can do some real good. It means more when it almost never happens. One more time, I'm not saying this is the case, but I don't think the possibility should be dismissed based on nothing. Until we know lets try not to render harsh judgment.

We have a new leader. I think we can do better, though.

It's starting to look like this team has some individuals who are having a tough time processing their names circulating in the rumor front...and maybe thats what Torts was talking about when he said "we need to stick together with all thats swirling around" something to that extent?

and now Sather supposedly encouraged them in the room? If that's what happened?

At least give us some hockey cliches or some BS... he shows no effort, just like his hockey team.
depends on your pov, you can see it as he wasn't very happy and it showed a concentrated resolve. it's all speculation and pov from this little info.

Glen Sather hasn't said a damn word that has gotten this team anywhere the past decade. I don't see why tonight that would change.

I asked Vinny Prospal if there was a sense that because Sather addressed the team, changes could be forthcoming if the Rangers dont reverse this slide. Prospal didnt see it that way at all.

Its a sense that were not doing as well as we should, Prospal said.
hmmm....

So far from this very little tidbit we can conclude that Sather is full of himself. He believes he's constructed a good team when the fact of the matter is he has constructed a incompetent team. He believes in them? Not playing the way they should be or can? Just look at the damn roster. You have people playing roles they wouldn't be playing on any other competetive team. Maybe he's giving them hope so the team puts together some effort and points while that buys him some leeway to work out a deal. Who knows.

Exactly. He spoke to them earlier in the season and look how much that has helped. I don't see why saying something tonight will change anything.

So Sather has already addressed the team in the past? Tried to motivate them with the I believe in you guys crap? And that didn't work? Shocker . . . .

Tonight's approach had to be different, I guess... I can picture him saying We gave you guys a shot but it's just not working out, so there are going to be some changes made.

Why wasn't Torts+Drury in the locker room when Sather held his little meeting? And who was the other player that wasn't there? Redden? Lundqvist? Gaborik?

I'm hoping what he said tonight was more threatening.

"I believe in this group of players" - Sather

Translation: I have pressed us up against the cap and no one wants any of you in a trade so I can't do anything.

No you misunderstood... Gross is saying that it wasn't Torts or Drury or any other veteran who was in the room addressing the team.
Not that they weren't there at all.

The article is suggesting that it wasn't Drury or Torts that spoke in the room; rather it was Sather doing the speaking. It's not saying that they weren't in the room.

People don't like to interview Sather because he usually responds with:
"Piss off, will ya."

addressing the room would ruin Drury's weekend.

if he didn't care about saving face...
Redden, and Kotalik would be in the minors.
And Roszival would be somewhere else...or in the minors if there were no suitors.

Redden should be cautious of Shanon Sather taking him out fishing on the lake.
