Wholesale Change Needed for the New York Rangers

March 25th, 2010 by Leslie Monteiro Leave a reply »

The Rangers hired Glen Sather in 2000. They hired him with the hopes of turning this awful franchise into an elite one.

It's going to be 10 years in June. From what we saw, this franchise is no better than it was under his predecessor Neil Smith.

The Rangers missed out the playoffs in Sather's first four years with the club. He built the team by adding free agents past their prime along with trading for stars.

That approach did not work out. With the lockout in 2005, the team decided to build with young prospects and character players.

The franchise had success by qualifying for the playoffs, but they only advance to the second round only once.

That does not cut it in New York. Only winning a championship can constitute success here.

It's not a big deal to make the playoffs when many teams can make it in the NHL. If anything, it's a joke this franchise miss the playoffs often under Sather's reign.
