Brooks: Glen Sather considering stepping down

finasterida 5mg para alopecia Per Larry Brooks, Glen Sather is considering stepping down as General Manager of the New York Rangers. Slats has been GM since the 2000 season, and has been apparently grooming Assistant GM Jeff Gorton to replace him (which is why Slats denied teams the ability to interview Gorton this season).

motrin ib 600 mg Slats’ pre-salary cap run was mired with unsuccessful big-money signings and trades, aimed at buying a Stanley Cup. With the salary cap in place, Slats has seen the Rangers make the playoffs nine of the last ten years, with two runs to the Eastern Conference Final and one to the Stanley Cup Final in the past four years.

diovan 80 mg generika This does not mean that Slats is stepping down. In the article, Slats clearly states he is undecided about his future.

    amitriptyline hcl 10 mg withdrawal How many more rounds of golf per week could Slats get in if he retired, 2? Gorton’s been running the show for some time.

      buspar 5mg for anxiety Gorton has been assuming more and more responsibility, but Slats is still the big dog.

    how much does zofran cost with insurance Interesting if true….. I hate Brooks, though. I’ve been a big post-lockout fan of Slats- like many here. I wonder if he would prefer to hold his post for another couple years (and a couple more runs at the cup) before relinquishing his position, but is feeling forced that Gorton’s patience may be running low. Basically give him the job or he’s going elsewhere type scenario.

    himalaya mentat ds tablet price Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

      price prednisolone acetate walmart Yea, I do think that despite many FA blemishes, Sather has continued to build competitive teams since the lockout. His trades have ranged from high-risk/low-reward to absolutely genius. The team he’s now assembled is such a fine balance of farm-raised talent, veteran leadership, and acquired offensive tools. Solid depth, solid D, outstanding goaltending.

      adalat sublingual 10mg I have to think he’d want to give it another year or two to see if he can cement his legacy as someone who not only amassed Cups in Edmonton with an elite team at his disposal, but also someone who can build a waning franchise back to respectability and lead them to the promised land.

      source However, his health is an issue –probably the number one variable that could lead him to step down. Either way, I’d be excited to see what Gorton has to offer with full control.

      endep 50 mg medication Hatrick Slats doesn’t respond favorably to those type of moves. I suspect, like everyone else, that Slats will step down in his current capacity, but will assume another position in the organization. Let’s face it, Slats is Jim Dolan’s bud, and Jim probably will create a cushion job just to keep him around!!!!!!!!ül-yan-etkileri.html Having said that, I could be completely off mark, and be dead wrong????????????

    aldara prescription Did Slats sacrifice the future and overpay for MSL and/or Yandle in an attempt to win the Cup before stepping down? Would he have made the same moves if we was going to be here longer?

    • Jun 5, 2015 at 3:13 pm

      see That’s a solid question, but I think he, as have a lot of others, believes the Rangers need to win before Hank turns 35.

        Permalink Why is it always about Lundqvist? Hockey is a team sport it is about the team, its’ not friggin baseball. Gordon will be a good replacement for Sather. I thought Don Maloney was a better fit, but that ship sailed long ago.

          cytotec cost You know Bloomer, many people seam to say that this whole turnaround of the Rangers started with Torts instilling the thought process of building from within to succeed. However, it was Don Maloney that started it all, but he doesn’t get the recognition for it, because he left for Phoenix/Arizona shortly after.

        • Jun 6, 2015 at 11:46 am

          propecia prices usa I hate to say this, but you don’t seem to know much about hockey if you don’t understand the extreme importance of solid goaltending needed to win a Stanley Cup! That goes for any team, especially this team, built from the goal out!

        • Jun 8, 2015 at 7:21 am

          follow url Bloomer if you really think Lundqvist isn’t the key to this team,, you must have been watching cricket, Poker Stars, or horse-racing over the last three years. Please please come back when you’ve joined the real world.

    go to site Keep in mind that, according to the Post article, if Sather steps down he likely would do what Lou L. did in NJ and stay on board as President. This might be the best of both worlds for all concerned. He gets to stay involved and have chance to finish the job in NY and get his name on the Cup one more time. The GM duties would fall to Gorton, who they clearly do not want to lose. And Slats can ease off a bit, take care of his health, be an advisor and also play lots of golf. Sounds like everyone wins with that one!

  • Jun 5, 2015 at 5:52 pm

    Please explain to me how a guy who makes the money Sather makes, and has produced Zilch/Nada/ ZERO during his tenor, yet he still has his job?? In any other Corporate America Business, he would have been fired YEARS AGO. The guy made his reputation with the Edmonton Oilers, he had Gretzky & Messier and an all star at every position. Dolan loves him, I am CONVINCED he must have a lifetime contract!!

    • Jun 5, 2015 at 6:29 pm

      Well Bobby, part of me wants to say you’re right and part wants to say you’re wrong.

      15 years……no cup……just a God awful series of moves in his first six seasons. If you had said in 2005 or 2006 he should go, I’d have helped you open the door and kick him out! 🙂

      BUT, since then, the Rangers have been to the playoffs every year but one. They have drafted smarter and built a real good young core. They’ve been to the Conference Finals 3 times in the last four years, including last year’s Cup run. They won the the President’s Trophy this season. He was recognized by his peers as nominee for GM of the year. I believe since 2012, other than Chicago, no team has had this much post season success.

      And, as a result of all the winning the Rangers have done, ratings on MSG TV and radio are up, and more playoffs games means more home dates in April, May and sometimes June. That means lots more money for my stockholders. So if I’m Dolan, I’m seeing my ledger sheet and it’s looking good thanks to Sather.

      Now, I agree, he probably does have a lifetime contract. Of course, he’s missing the big prize. But it’s hard to look at the Rangers and say that Sather doesn’t have the team well positioned to win it all these next few years.

    • Jun 6, 2015 at 11:53 am

      “Zilch/Nada/ ZERO”????

      What the hell are you talking about? Based on that ridiculous comment, 29 GMs should be fired this year! Corporate America would not have fired anyone who performed like he has the last 10 years! Get your head out of the sand, stop being bitter about the loss, and realize the awesome teams you had the pleasure of watching play under Slats’ last ten years! Is there another team you would rather be a fan of today??

      Pure unadulterated silliness!

      • Jun 7, 2015 at 5:26 pm

        JOE, everyone is entitled to their opinion, obviously we disagree on Sather, my point is , with the unlimited expense account he was given to bring a stanley cup to the NYR, he has not delivered, LETS NOT FORGET THOSE RIDICULOUS SIGNINGS OF THOSE OVER THE HILL PLAYERS, WITH NOT EVEN A PLAYOFF BIRTH TO SHOW FOR IT!! I will give him some credit over the last 3 years, but with the money he makes, he should lace up the skates himself and take a regular shift!!!.

        • Jun 8, 2015 at 7:29 am

          Bobby, do you know Bloomer? (See above). It’s hard to take you seriously when you make ridiculous comments in mid-June after not posting all season. Seriously, you’re going to bring up Sather’s record from 2004? Whaa….? Please come back when you’ve joined the adult world.

          Oh and P.S., it’s a playoff BERTH, not BIRTH. Come on.

          Regards- orange

    Hey Walt, I see your point,and agree to a certain extent, what makes me cringe is from 2001 through 2004 we had that ridiculous payroll and never made the playoffs, ACCOUNTABILITY!! , painful memories!!

    • Jun 5, 2015 at 7:54 pm


      If you have read my posts, time and again, I have said that we don’t need marquee named retreads any longer, who come here to get a big pay check, and start their retirement at the Ranger’s expense, on our ice.

      As a matter of fact, early on Slats made a comment that if he had the money that the Rangers had to play with, he’d win the cup, well he never delivered did he?????? Enough with old history, he changed, or the cap era made him change, but we still haven’t won the whole enchilada yet !!!!!!!!!!!

    Today marks the 71st anniversary of D-Day. Let’s take a moment to raise a glass and salute the brave men who risked it all, including those who made the ultimate sacrifice! I stood on the shores of Normandy a couple of years back, seen the cliffs and fortifications that the Germans were entrenched in, and shed a tear wondering how in the world these men were able to do what they did. Completely against all odds!

    Salute’ to the worlds greatest generation!!

    2000 to 2005 – should have been fired, worst record as Ranger GM in history.

    Then NHL, thinking they’re screwing the Rangers by putting in a cap, actually do Sather a favor and the Rangers are one of the best teams since then.

    After all is said and done, Jeff Gorton is running the GM duties anyway, probably for the last 4 years so this “stepping down” as GM is just an internal administrative move, nothing changes.
