Glenn Sather On Retirement Talk Plus The Disappointing Senators

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

There were whispers reported earlier this week from a credible news outlet in Edmonton that this indeed would be that year, just as there were reports last season out of Boston that Sather would relinquish his day-to-day duties as Rangers GM while retaining his post as club president.

Someday, the story will be true. But not this time. Not, at least, according to an individual who ought to know.

“Everybody retires sometime, but I’m not intending to step away or retire from anything this year,” Sather told Slap Shots on Friday in Columbus, Ohio. “I don’t know how stories like this keep coming up, because I haven’t said anything to anybody about retiring. … One day, yes. But not now.”///

It is beginning to look like Daniel Alfredsson’s defection to Detroit has had a similar impact on the Senators as Mark Messier’s escape to Vancouver had on the Rangers in 1997, leaving a club behind and adrift without its leader.

The Senators are the league’s most disappointing team. The toughness, edge and swagger that complemented the club’s talent are gone. Ottawa has become just another easy team to play against — almost a welcome respite for an opponent.

By the way, one year remains on the contracts of both Jason Spezza and Bobby Ryan in advance of 2016 unrestricted free agency.

Avery & Sather Statements

via the NY Rangers,

On Tuesday, the Dallas Stars assigned forward Sean Avery to the Rangers’ American Hockey League affiliate in Hartford. The following are statemtents from Avery and Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather:

STATEMENT FROM SEAN AVERY:
“I would like to thank Glen Sather and the Rangers organization for giving me the chance to resume my hockey career by affording me this opportunity with the Hartford Wolf Pack.  I am looking forward to getting back on the ice,  working my way back to the NHL and playing the game I love.  While I appreciate the many interview requests, at this point in time, I would like to focus on hockey and will not be making any further statements while with the Wolf Pack.”

STATEMENT FROM GLEN SATHER:
“Sean and the Dallas Stars approached me looking for an American Hockey League team for him to resume playing, and I am happy to provide him with the opportunity to continue his career.  Sean was a good player for the Rangers during his time here and has worked extremely hard off the ice over the last two months.  He remains under contract to and property of the Stars, therefore, any further comment would be inappropriate.”
