The Oilers will raise a banner at Rexall Place to honor former coach, general manager and executive Glen Sather before their game against the Rangers on Dec. 11.
Meet the new boss — same as the old boss? That’s not entirely accurate, but Rangers fans should be happy with Glen Sather’s successor.
Another member of the old guard has stepped away from a high-profile front office position.
In light of the news that Glen Sather has stepped down as general manager of the Rangers — a post he’d held since 2000 — we look back at the five best moves made by the organization during his tenure.
General manager Glen Sather didn’t fear the risks when parting with a huge package to pry puck-moving defenseman Keith Yandle from the Coyotes.
The Rangers and Lightning are battling on the ice and for a front office award.
With Mats Zuccarello signed for the long-term and newly acquired defenseman Keith Yandle added to their arsenal, the Rangers are primed for another run at Lord Stanley.
One day Yandle was at a kid’s birthday party in Arizona, and way out of the Stanley Cup playoff chase. The next, he stepped into the thick of the fight. The All-Star defenseman couldn’t be happier.
Mats Zuccarello isn’t going anywhere. According to ESPN.com, the Rangers and the 5-foot-7 winger have agreed to a four-year, $18 million extension.
There will be plenty of Rangers fans shocked upon learning that super-prospect Anthony Duclair is heading to Arizona. But for GM Glen Sather, this was a no-brainer.
There have been a lot of calls for the Blueshirts to acquire big-bodied skaters capable of matching the physicality of the Isles and Bruins. My message: don’t do it.
The New York Rangers and defenseman Marc Staal have agreed on a contract extension, keeping Staal off the free agent market this summer.
The Rangers pulled the plug on MDZ at the right time. Meanwhile, Kevin Klein has been trusted to play an increased role this season — and it’s paying off.
Fellow defensemen Dan Girardi and Marc Staal, and forwards Derek Stepan and Martin St. Louis, were chosen as alternate captains.
The sting of the double-overtime loss in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals is mostly gone. However, don’t think for a second that it is forgotten by the New York Rangers.
