Yandle's risk worth the reward for Rangers GM Sather

New York GM Glen Sather traded in some sterling future prospects and draft picks to land 28-year-old defenseman Keith Yandle at the trade deadline in March, but the defenseman did not pay immediate dividends as he struggled with turnovers at the beginning of his New York career.Now in the playoffs, Yandle is starting to look right at home with the Rangers.

Derick Brassard’s continued growth vital to Rangers

Derick Brassard has developed beyond all reasonable expectations for the Rangers this season. Brassard’s regular season alone (full of career highs) justified Glen Sather’s faith in the talented pivot last summer and one year into his new five year deal has his 5m cap hit looking like a bargain.

Why this Rangers team doesn’t need draft picks

Salary cap implications of the Keith Yandle trade

Once again it seemed like Rangers GM Glen Sather had little to no maneuverability under the salary cap, and once again Slats found a way to wriggle his payroll under the cap ceiling. By exploiting a to this point little-used clause in the new collective bargaining agreement, Sather got Arizona to eat half of Yandle’s Read more → The post Salary cap implications of the Keith Yandle...

New York Rangers trade rumors: Mats Zuccarello likely to be gone

Mats Zuccarello of the New York Rangers is rumored to be traded sometime within the next few days, as a result of the inability between general manager Glen Sather and Zuccarello to agree on the terms of a contract extension. The 5’7″ Zuccarello (12-23-35 in 58 games), with his fast skating ability and aggressive forecheck, is certainly a fan favorite for the amount of heart...

Which kids can be considered trade bait?

As the NHL trade deadline approaches and Glen Sather adjusts his moving-target-deadline-strategy, the conversation is likely to shift from which roster players can be dealt to which kids can be dealt.

Zuccarello Getting Hot At The Right Time

At some point, we all knew that Mats Zuccarello was going to figure it out. Coming off a 59 point campaign that led the Rangers a year ago and the contract issues that seem to follow him, Zuccarello’s shortcomings (no pun intended) with his production thus far were a little bit surprising given just about everyone had targeted Zuccarello as the guy who would show the most dramatic...

The Rebirth of Rick Nash

This is the Rick Nash that Glen Sather thought he was acquiring from the Columbus Blue Jackets back in 2012. We’re 16 games into the 2014-15 season, and the former 2012 No. 1 overall pick is not only in a tie for the league lead in goals with 12, not only on pace to shatter Jaromir Jagr’s franchise record for goals in a single season with 54 but most importantly looks the part...

Mismanagement of Defense Will Hurt Rangers

Glen Sather seems like a man who’s pretty happy with his defense.

Did The Rangers Land Another Late Round Goaltending Steal?

This time last season one of the biggest question marks within the Rangers organization was their lack of elite goaltending prospects. I know the Rangers just re-signed Henrik Lundqvist to a seven year extension, but eventually they needed to start grooming his heir apparent. Which is why it was no surprise to see Glen Sather and Gordie Clarke draft top goaltending prospect...
