As much as I hate the Leafs he was in their top six for three years so he can’t be all that bad.
But like I said find me a better deal for what the Rangers paid him.
You’re right, teams like the Devils, Wings, Flyers and so on have their players to call up.
Sather’s players are not ready yet. They are rookies in the AHL, like Aufiero. Bright prospect, but a rookie in the AHL. Same with State, Weller, and Kinch is not a rookie, a sophomore, but not ready yet.
Also the Wolf*Pack have a lot of injuries, they had to call up from the ECHL.
Stop being such a stupid low class bum. No GM can have a deep farm system when he has only drafted for 3 years. STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!!
THOSE ARE THE FACTS…..
I am blaming Smith because Sather had to dump his trashy prospects. Where are Smith’s 25 year olds? GONE, because they SUCK. WHo the hell is Wes Jarvis??? A BUST….that’s all he’s drafted.
You’re right, right now the the new Rangers haven’t been able to push the team far, i’ll admit that. But, don’t be such a stupid jackass with the minor league.
Kloucek wouldn’t have been called up even if Mottau or Chebaturkin were healthy. Why? He is off his game ever since that knee surgery, which is very understandable, but then had a concussion 3 weeks ago. I wouldn’t call him up if he wouldn’t bring his physical game.
Smith would have been ready to trade anyone to get both Lindros and Jagr. He already had a Jagr deal before, but the Pens backed down. Good move by the Pens too since they would have gotten trashy prospects.
“Slats has stripped the organization of most of its young talent and replaced it with a bunch of overpaid underachievers.”
What young talent??? York for another youngster in Poti, he’s leading the defensemen in points. Plus minus is not as bad as people expected. Brendl criticized the organization, he was going to be traded anyway. Novak was Sather’s pick and no better than Tjutin, who will make his debut next season.
What other young talent? Johnsson, but would you rather have had Lindros or Nedved as your first line guy?
You don’t know anything…back down…those are the facts.
I don’t think Sather will trade his own young talent. Maybe i could see one more guy go, probably Shawn Collymore, but Dominic Moore is the Rangers next Mike York (scouting reports compare him to that). Tjutin will be a top defenseman in the organization. Garth Murray, Hollweg, Taylor, Guenin….
Instead of being a failure in trying to be an expert, sit back and let Sather do what every other GM does. Take a few years to builde a young core. Had Neil Smith built a nice young core of talent, he could have kept the job.
I never heard of a GM turning a bad team with a bad farm system around in THREE YEARS.]]>
