‘Fire Glen Sather’... One Year Later

From New York Magazine:

A year ago today, some 200 Rangers fans gathered outside Madison Square Garden for a Fire Glen Sather rally in which they cited grievances against the Rangers’ general manager and called for his ouster. Since then, the Rangers missed the playoffs for the first time since the lockout — but have also seen a new crop of young players make an impact at the NHL level. The rally’s organizer, Mike Zippo, spoke with The Sports Section about whether his opinion of Sather has changed over the past twelve months.

A year later, do you still think Glen Sather should be fired? Has anything changed over the past twelve months that made you reconsider your position?
Well, he’s certainly been doing a better job as of late. He’s cleared some cap space, he hasn’t given away prospects or picks, and the team is young, competitive, and fun to watch.

What did you think of what Sather did, or didn’t do, at the deadline? How important do you think it is to be competitive in 2011, as opposed to building toward something in the future?
I liked what he did. Like I said before, he didn’t give up prospects, but he was able to bring someone in like [Brian] McCabe to be a bit of a mentor for the younger guys for the rest of the season. It is very important for them to be competitive this year and make the playoffs, but they didn’t need to overpay and mortgage the farm for a rental. They’re still a ways away from winning a Cup, I’d think.

It’s like the cap reality hit Sather right smack in the face.

To be honest, I think the “cap reality hit” is something that has smacked Glen Sather in the face every year of his entire professional life.  smile
