Ok, in all fairness these guys have been spot on the ball about just about every rumour that's been broken lately, including Eakins signing in Edmonton. This is a literal RUMOUR at this time and nothing more but it does echo some serious rumblings from New York Media outlets, so until I do find the link or tweet do not jump on me. I am searching desperately for the link to this RUMOUR. But the RUMOUR from a fairly spot on group of guys who also run a sweet hockey pool are saying New York Media is reporting Glen Sather is considering stepping down as GM but retaining the position of President of Hockey Operations with the New York Rangers. He has battled cancer and recently had a surgery to remove a tumour from his colon and some call his health into question regarding this. This is the only place I have heard this but when I find the story I will post the link. https://www.facebook...eyRandT?fref=ts

He's out for 6 months (which will hinder his development) and he really needs that development. There's already worries that he won't translate to the NHL and he'll end up a huge ass bust.

Sound thinking would dictate either Messier and or Gretzky would be involved in some way moving forward wouldn't it?

Sound thinking would suggest that Messier or Gretzky are not qualified for the jobs.

Hey, I won't argue that at all. But it's Slats and his boys. We all know how he is.

Oops, I mean, they aren't are qualified for the job. :bigblush:

Gretzky has done a stand-up job at the Olympics and has a successful and illustrious coaching career. Messier is a proven leader, as evidenced by his name on the trophy. :emot-parrot:

Yep. He wants to join the Oilers "old-boys" country club because he feels left out.

Yes, that's the only thing I've been able to find as well, but again the people who pasted that have been spot on about just about everything. And with his diminishing health and...unreal contracts I can see him stepping back from operations
