Rangers Will Hold On To Young Talent

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

The Post has learned that two weeks ago LA GM Dean Lombardi offered to send Avery, veteran defenseman Mattias Norstrom and veteran center Craig Conroy to Broadway in exchange for 20-year-old defenseman Marc Staal, who by acclamation is considered the organization’s brightest prospect.
“I’m not going to talk directly to that, but we’ve gotten some very interesting proposals from teams looking to pick off our best young guys,” Sather said. “It would be insanity to do something like that.”


Brooks also chimes in on Messier,

Mark Messier is entitled to aspire to whatever post-playing career he wishes and his rat pack of Oilers cronies is entitled to treat his every wish as if it were a command to be communicated to the outside world with a puff of white smoke.
Doug Messier is entitled to shamelessly campaign for his son to take over the Rangers upon Glen Sather’s retirement with exactly the same fervor as he sought top dollar on every single contract he negotiated in Edmonton, New York, Vancouver and New York again as No. 11’s agent.
