Kind of pissed he did nothing. I was hoping at the very least a salary dump...

Also, I think it's a bad move not to sell. Only two, maybe 3 teams sold this deadline. Canes, Edm, and maybe Anaheim. We're a fringe playoff team, at best. Glen should have unloaded some of our garbage and re-tooled for next year.

The Fire Sather really just gained a lot more momentum.

Someone mentioned that Glen managed to piss off both the buying crowd and selling crowd - couldnt have said it better myself, now March 7th will have even more attendees.

Okay, but who (comparable to Mueller, who many perceive as a talent with potential) is going the other way for Wolski? There's nobody comparable on our roster. Dubinsky? Lisin - who was waived and no one wanted? Christensen? Sather couldn't have made that deal.

This is a good thing.

Great that we didn't lose any draft picks for some rental. And look who was out there, one of the sorriest looking bunch of players on deadline day i've ever seen. Lots of role players we don't need.

Sanguenetti has talent with potential. And yeah Im sure Dubinsky/anisimov could have easily gotten him.

I do not know how Jokinen does not work out on a line with Gaborik and Prospal. If it does not work out this year then maybe Drury, Redden and Rozsival will be moved.
They did win three in a row. Maybe they will stay hot.

seems that glen took most of our advice and didnt give up picks prospects for rentals, seems like the prices were too high....but at the same time didnt do much to dump dead weight. I don't mind it, it could have been worse, expect girardi to go and souray for rozy at the draft, i'm almost sure glen will be really active then

Get a 2nd instead. They were flying off the shelf like hotcakes. Maybe you land 2 2nd rounders and turn them into a first.

So who would you liked to give up for him? Avs got a 21 year old top prospect who scored 22 goals as a 18 year old who is still loaded with potential and they also got a former Hobey Baker prospect who will be a good all around player in the NHL that can put up numbers.

I'm not a member of the "FIRE SATHER!" cryfest group, but I have to say I'm extremely envious of Brian Burke. He is one of the smartest and most straightforward and honest GM's I've ever seen. So well spoken. Doesn't answer stupid questions. Has integrity. KNOWS how he wants to build a team and shows confidence in his players when he should and speaks the honest truth. KNOWS when to give a NTC and when not to, and how to handle tough situations.

I think Sather, overall, has done a mediocre job. Not nearly as bad as some make it out to be, but certainly not great. It could be a lot worse: Don Wadell, Garth Snow, Steve Tambellini come to mind...

but Brian Burke is the Gretzky of GM's.

Agreed, which would've raised the value of some of the Rangers players he didnt move, especially in the last half hour.

But why would you want to get rid of Prospal? That doesn't make any sense. He plays well for us and has a one year deal. Not quite sure why you'd want this?

Nobody wanted our crappy (to put it lightly) contracts/players... no-one wants to rehab our failed experiments... no-one thinks a change of scenery would benefit ANY of our garbage.

Sather COULD have sent Prospal somewhere... that I'm sure of.

That's the only indicment you could make of him regarding today.

(Feel free to bash him for constructing the myriad of issues also mentioned... but today you could only fault him for not taking advantage of an opportunity in Prospal)

seriously... Besides Wolski (who I would have loved to get), there wasn't much else out there. very slim pickings.

Kinda sad we couldn't dump girardi for a 2nd or first though.

This was definately one of the most boring trade deadlines I could remember.

There's no way I trade Dubinsky for Wolski. Anisimov, maybe, but he's too young and has a lot of filling out to do. I think he'll be a very good player. People forget he's a rookie. Either way, this is dealing from a position (Center) that's probably our weakest for another winger.

How are we worse? We've won 4 of 5 -- two with gabby out.

It's not 1994 or 2004. Last year he HAD to make trades to compliment Torts' style. I mean, what could he has possibly done today with Dolan holding one hand behind his back?

You think rival NHL GM's dont know what kind of season Del Zotto, Staal, Callahan, Dubinsky etc are having?

Nobody is breaking down Slats' door asking for Voros or Girardi. Thank God for once Sather showed restraint and kept quiet.

Now that the deadline is over, we can all agree upon ending the "tank" talk and focus on getting into the playoffs.

Remember, we can still make the playoffs as an 8 seed and draft 15th overall, which is the highest we ever picked in the 1st round after making the playoffs since Kovalev in 1991 (I think)

And he actually SPEAKS to the press.

you can just dump girardi with nobody really there to take his spot this season. not with the rangers tied for a playoff spot. they needed to be buyers today, the prices werent what they were comfortable with so they stood pat.

it's what I would have done as well.

we made our big move, he's centering our 2nd line.

Be happy your not a flames fan right now

Also, keep in mind Sather tools consist of the players you the fans call "How is torts supposed to win with no talent"|"Our entire roster is 3rd line players" ... And so on.

You are ignorant if you think Sather didn't try. Every deadline he has gone out and made big moves for Rentals (What you get at the deadline) and every year people yell that he should have sat back and done nothing. Well, We have 3 lines that all seem to have some decent chemistry. Our D should have/could have been improved but w/e...Probably not at the right cost.

Too many teams have a chance at the playoffs this year. Not enough sellers.

Listen, i hate sather as much as you guys do. But, where I am at a loss is everyone makes it sound like dumping dead weight is easy. The reason it's not easy is because your answered yourself by calling them dead weight. Why would a team want our dead weight for draft picks? I mean, come on guys, it's common sense. It is very easy to say, "Why didn't he dump Redden's contract?" For whom! Who wants that contract?

I think he did a good job of doing nothing, to be honest this was a very dry trade deadline with not much happening. I think the Olympics had a lot to do with it, with certain star players performances (or lack there of) dissuaded a lot of GM's from pulling the trigger.

uh, trades usually trickle in as late as 6 hours past the deadline. teams only need to submit paperwork by 3pm. then they have to be approved by the NHL office before made official. settle down.

Brooks already reported the Rangers made no trades.
