What exactly is Sather's plan?

The Rangers have gone through the hardest part so far this off season. Watching Big Name free agents sign with teams like the “bankrupt” Penguins.

Now that they have gotten through the hardest part of this Re-had program of temptations…. One has to wonder. What is there plan?Well the Rangers have had a total of 9 picks in the first and second rounds of the 2004 and 2005 drafts combined. 3 of which were 1st round picks.

They have sure stocked up on prospects for the future. They have high hopes for the futures of these players.

(Some New some Old prospects)

Fedor Tyutin -D- already showing great potential

Henrik Ludqvist -G- playing over seas and maybe better then Montoya

Montoya -G- Young American goalie, potential to pick up where Richter let off.

Balej -RW- lighting Speed, as you might have seen at the end of the last 2003-2004 season, He looked real fast, real quick with the puck, and great hands.

Jarkko Immonen -C- Great Play maker with his hockey sense at what is said to be at an elite level.

The list goes on I could add about 5 more players that hockey annalists see as good solid prospects.

So while the future looks good. One has to ask. What will Sather do? He for the first time actually watched teams sign big name players!

At first The Rangers must have had players like Thorton and Lecavalier on the top of there UFA list of players to sign next summer. But the signing of those players is no big loss. A few other players are on the Rangers fans wish list starting with Young Stars……….

Marian Hossa and Martin St. Louis

both of which are having some contract issues and may want to see what they get offered in next years off season.

The truth is for all the Ranger fans is if they get resigned, or go some place else… you can’t get upset. Looking at the Rangers Future…. I can finally say it’s strong.

Weather or not Sather try’s to make some moves next year to grab some young stars is yet to be known. One thing is for sure. Rangers should have a top 5 pick in next years draft.

    “People take potshots at others when they are pi$$ed off at their own ineptitude.”

    You call him inept…

    Who’s lacking now?

    And how does that foot taste?

  2. GretzNYR99 says:

    The Leafs will win one before the Islanders.

    The one thing I can give them is that their fans will never turn away like the “Islander fans” did.

    Good *****ing riddance.

    Good to see that you’re still here.

  4. GretzNYR99 says:

    You’re not going to get much for a guy who was supposed to be the Swedish version of Wayne Gretzky. This guy was well-touted as a Flames prospect, but never became the sum of his parts, having a decent career. He’s not worth more than a 2nd rounder if he performs well. Unless some team desperately needs help at playoff time, I don’t see him going for anymore than a 2nd rounder, even if we’re lucky.

    VERY well said. it really is a shame how everyone complains about the ranger past of them stacking their team yet getting nowhere. and the people who complain the most, their team is starting to do it. only thing is i think pittsburg will do good this year. anyways…they tanked for draft picks…they r notorious for it

  6. Sands says:

    hhahaah i was out all night wish i could have backed my self up… would have said the same thing GretzNYR99. You took the words right out of my mouth. Thanks bro.

  7. Sands says:

    I don’t care if they lose. I didn’t bet anything big i made like a stupid 5 doller bet on them smacky. So no… i don’t care. They are the best team on paper right now… or one of them… how they got the money is a different story in itself.

  8. Sands says:

    this isn’t a translation site pal. English buddy… so everyone understands. MY TEAM SUCKS!!! The Rangers are a bad team… The flyers have a good team… I haven’t made any shot’s at them. Atlanta is building a good team…. did I take shots at them?

    you tell me… HOW DID YOUR TEAM GET ALL THIS MONEY? they have not made a dime in the last decade. that’s all I’m trying to say. That’s my only point I’m trying to make…. Stop using that crack…. it’s making you crazy.

  9. Sands says:

    but i figured this section of comments isn’t even worth it… it is kind of funny though.

  11. Sands says:

    that was not only the dumbest comment I have ever heard….. but everyone that has just seen this is now dumber for having read it… you are awarded no points……and my god have mercy on your soul.

  12. Sands says:

    My fault I didn’t even know this was your Button… I didn’t know you had buttons… Wait up! I should get a fu(ken button “Spelling Corrections.”

    I don’t know I haven’t been around HTR for a while… My fault.

  13. Sands says:

    No other comments. I will just Pray the Rangers suck and get a top 3 pick in the draft.

    Very well said.

    All good points. But in doing so, you didn’t realize what may be the most important point. During the early 90’s the Penguins won two Stanley Cups.

    For all the misguided spending the Rangers have done in the last five seasons, they have zilch to show for it.

  17. GretzNYR99 says:

    Like you, French is gay.

    Stop speaking it.

  18. GretzNYR99 says:

    Moreso in the last 3, but at least we didn’t drag the league down and cry poor by filing chapter 11, and then go about our old free-spending ways again like nothing ever happened.

    Dolan may be a toolbag, but at least he’s not stupid enough to put this club into bankruptcy.

    Jagr only counts $4mil towards the Rangers cap. TSN has the info up there. The Caps are paying the other $4mil that doesn’t get charged to their cap.

    Whalers prospect.

    Being a woman (and French Canadian at that), I’ve never had a problem sitting down, thank you. As for hockey, I love the sport and like & respect all the teams. It’s their fans I sometimes find childish and annoying, who act tough on the internet but would cower to you if they ever saw you in person. You and your buddy Sands can now go back to your parents’ basements and pudknock yourselves to the underwear ads in the catalogs. Fin!

    his last four or five season’s in Edmonton were not that great….How many draft choices made it to the NHL anywhere….not many….and he had some high draft picks

  23. GretzNYR99 says:

    1. I don’t care about you and what you think

    2. You’re worthless

    3. The only thing I find annoying here is that you stir shit up, and then when someone who outshines you comes along, you act like an innocent victim.

    All in all, either shut up and don’t say a word, or take it like a man.

    You’re French and Canadian, right?

    So you’re dull, and obnoxious?
