Glen Sather’s tenure as the General Manager with the New York Rangers was defined by bold moves. Let’s take a look at his best acquisitions.
When the ball dropped in Times Square for the commencement of the 21st century, it also marked a new era of hockey for the New York Rangers.
The Broadway Blueshirts named Hall of Famer Glen Sather as President and General Manager later that year, establishing that the franchise would be going in a new direction.
Sather was the General Manger on Broadway for 15 years before passing the duties to the current GM, Jeff Gorton.
Some would argue that Sather’s tenure as GM in New York was a success, but his term was haunted by one thing.
Lord Stanley’s Cup.
Sather wasn’t able to capture hockey’s holy grail after coming up short time after time.
With that being said, Sather did make some brilliant moves before he gave up his position. He exposed his genius time after time and was never afraid to make a bold move. This was especially true on the trade market.
These two traits allowed Sather to pull off some mind-blowing trades that defined his tenure in New York.
So without further adieu, let’s take a look at the best trades of the Glen Sather era (GM era).
