I don't know how any Ranger fan could have come out of the first day of the Free Agency period with anything, but a big smile on their face.
The goal was to sign a center to slot in on the second line behind Nylander. Instead Sather pulls a rabbit out of his hat and snares both Scotty Gomez from the Devils and Chris Drury from the Sabres to solidify the team up the middle.
With those 2 signings the Rangers not only got stronger at center, but also younger as well. The line combination possibilities are for another day, for now it is enough to know that the team was able to improve without mortgaging the future.
Oh yeah and the Devils lost 2 key players in Gomez and Rafalski and the Islanders lost pretty much everyone, but the goalie.
Yep, I Can't Complain.
