Glen Sather Thread (all Sather news/discussion)

Rick Carpiniello from Lohud posted this on his blog,

http://rangers.lohudblogs.com/2010/0...nd-dimensions/

Quote:
Heard this last night, checked around a little, didn’t find any evidence that it’s true: Glen Sather will retire after this season.

The source claims to have knowledge of this, from a better source. I’m not sure if I believe it, and I’m certainly not sure Sather would be sharing such info with some people, and not with the people I asked. So I’m very skeptical.
Obviously, he says he is skeptical, but I thought it was worth posting. I'm sure it would be dream for a lot of us. I doubt it will happen though.

I feel like this whole thread will be able to be summed up by the following:

"I'll believe it when I see it."

Anyways, this gives us hope that Sather's days are numbered!

Well, if I remember correctly, back in 2004 when Sather gave up the coaching title it wasn't really rumored anywhere, just pure and heavy speculation by us until it happened.

So when Sather leaves the active GM's title, it will no doubt be similar.

Guess Rick needed a boost in hits for his page since he has done a terrible job taking over from Sam.

This will never happen.

This should be good news, if true.

But honestly, does anyone actually believe our lazy and inept owner wont make a bigger mess of things?

I'd put him on a horse and carriage and bring him back to Edmonton.

Not at all. I expect it. How else can he help groom Mark Messier to be a colossal failure as GM?

Not the first time this is rumored this season. Probably the first time on the Rangers side tho. In all honesty this wouldn't be a surprise, that's a more likely scenario than to see him fired. On the other hand, I don't bite too much into it, or as mentioned above, I'll believe it when I see it. Especially when Carp says he's heard it form a guy who heard it from a guy, and write that below what the OP has posted:

Aah, the beauty of a blog. You can just throw crap like this out there. It would never fly in the newspaper. But if it comes true, remember where you read it first.
Wait and see...

I have come to realize I do not want Sather to retire. I just don't want him dealing with Free agencys.

The guy isn't young. Really, how much longer does he even want to do this? The team is clearly at a crossroads and you'd like to think he realizes it's the right time.

One could indeed wish, but it's just a rumor, so I wouldn't buy too much into it.

And Crapiniello sucks, anyway...

I maintain that Sather will be the one to name his successor.

dude I was thinking the exact same thing. He's been awful. He's no more in-the-know than we are.

Sam was great

Yep, I agree. Some people at the beginning said they liked Carp more. No way, Sam was an infinite amount better. He was better than anyone right now as well (Gross, Zipay, etc.).

Slats would be crazy to leave now, with the team seemingly at a low point, having come full circle to where it was when he took over.

But the reality is that the team is on the verge of breaking through with all the youth he collected plus the upcoming top 10 pick.

Rick has been put in a tough position by The Journal News. He was given this assignment on top, not in lieu, of his main responsibilities and is forced to cover the Rangers from a distance while he travels around the state covering high school sports.

In addition, with the economy being the way it's been, The Journal News has cut back funding which means they won't pay to let him travel with the team on the road like Sam was able to.

Rick works hard and puts a lot of overtime to cover the blog while not getting paid extra for it. Getting on him is a little unfair.

I liked Carp at first, but he's easily the worst out of Zipay and Gross. I barely read Rangers Report anymore, and that was my "go to" blog when Sam was the beat writer.

Is Carp ever at practice? Does he even talk to the players? The only insider information he gets is from those stupid MSG press releases.

Well, to be fair, Rick "covers" the Rangers here and there. He's certainly not a beat writer/reporter like Zipay and Gross and has said so on many, many, many occasions for anyone that's following that blog. IIRC, Sam left and LoHud no longer really covered the Rangers with a dedicated reporter and Rick kept the blog going as a service to the people who post there.

It's good for some opinions and a few laughs. Not much else.
