Sather Looking To Fill In Blueline Gaps

With injuries to Darius Kasparaitis, Greg DeVries, and Tom Poti, and with the Rangers playoff hopes once again hanging on by a thread, Glen Sather is finally looking to deal for a defenseman. “Sather said he is acting quickly to bring in a veteran defenseman, either via trade or free agency. The rest of the Rangers regulars are left to wonder how they were in position to move up from eighth in the Eastern Conference a week ago and are now in 10th, having fallen behind the Thrashers.” – Newsday.

He was noted as saying that he was looking to deal for a defender in last nights press conference after the Bruins embarrassed the Rangers again for the 2nd time in 2 days. Possible defensemen could be Jason Smith, Hal Gill or Dan McGillis, Chris Therien, and a host of other defenseman.

I have publically stated on here and many other forums that the Rangers have needed a physical, defensive defenseman since the start of the season. Finally, Sather will have to get one, and maybe move Poti or Malakhov in the process once DeVries comes back.

    Neither Yush or Tverdovsky can play in the nhl, both under contracts and past the 8 game limit. (i think)

    So is it “The Big Gape-Hole” now instead of the Big Apple?

    I’m surprised they haven’t blocked this wads IP yet.

    Just a matter of time before we say hasta la vista to this oxygen waste…

    Im waiting for another mistake i.e. Sean Hill or Bob Bougner to happen as the Rangers panic yet again. Id be panicking about the goalie situation, because averaging 4-5 goals against isnt going to get you to the playoffs. Maybe they dont care? Its odd how if I decided to “not show up to work” (not in the literal sense but if I didnt accomplish what my job entailed), I am sure I would be fired within a week. The only guys working for their paychecks ar Lindros, DeVries (when he was playing), Kaspar, Simon, Barnaby and Nedved.

    Bring back Lefebvre and Karpa! haha

    Keep Purinton!

    Wait for Tjutin!

    So is it “You tried to sound funny” instead of you failed miserably at doing so?

  6. GretzNYR99 says:

    Yeah, something has to be done, it’s worthless wastes of life like him who pollute this site.

  7. GretzNYR99 says:

    Lefebrve and Karpa… please don’t joke around like that, horrid memories.

  8. Bubblenuts says:

    No, it’s “we were talking about gaping holes, and I thought i’d be polite and keep your mother out of this”

    Shit for brains
