More Sather Quotes

Blue Notes has some more interesting Sather quotes, adding to what was mentioned earlier.
the GM said he believed that penalty-killing UFA center Blair Betts could be wooed by Edmonton. He is from Western Canada..."and Tom (Renney) always liked him."

On Zherdev: "He might not take the (qualifying) offer. His agent's kind of tough to get a straight answer from...It depends. he's still a young guy. He's got to be a little more determined."

There's five defensemen, Sather said, "who are knocking on the door: Gilroy, Sanguinetti, Del Zotto, Sauer and Potter...and we have to start making room for our young guys." He did not, however, rule out signing a crease-clearing free-agent defenseman this summer....
Very true what Sather said about Betts, Renney was the reason Sather brought Betts to New York in the first place and now it looks like he could follow Renney to Edmonton. The way things are going the whole 4th line from 2008-09 will be gone. The quote about the defenseman makes it sound like the Rangers may be letting UFA Paul Mara walk, it was already expected that Derek Morris wouldn't be brought back next season.
