Pride over Truth

Ranger NationCorrespondent IJanuary 27, 2009

This is what has been happening in the New York Rangers system since Glen Sather has become general manager.

Waving Dan Fritsche today was the only move Slats could make without owning up to his terrible mistakes of signing Patrick Rissmiller and Aaron Voros. By waving or attempting to trade either of the two would be Sather saying, "Hey, I screwed up!" You will never see that happen.

The only way a player like Aaron Voros would be traded if it was in a package with a player of Scott Gomez' stature to bring in another huge player. I can see it now.

Reporter 1: Glen, why would you get rid of young players in Scott Gomez & Aaron Voros that you signed and have talked highly about since their acquisitions?

Sather: I couldn't turn down getting the player we received today. Aaron Voros is a great player who will be an amazing talent in this league some day.

Still basically more of the malarkey that has graced our presence since the dope traded Brian Leetch away for a bag of hockey pucks and Lauri Korpikoski who will turn into a decent player once he doesn't have to play in Tom Renney's system anymore.

It's Glen Sathers pride (and Tom Renney's system) that have stopped the New York Rangers from being nothing more than a second round playoff team.
