On the developing prospects...
“Our goal has always been to try and develop our own players to build a core group of players that are going to grow up together,” said team President and General Manager Glen Sather. “It takes time to develop players, and it takes time for them to develop into National Hockey League players. But there are some kids that are really starting to come in the right direction now.”
...when Sather says it has always been their goal, I'm assuming he means starting this offseason.
On the current group of prospects...
“I don’t want to paint a picture where I am being a little too enthusiastic, but we have a good group of kids coming along,” said Sather. “There were a lot of players that really looked good in our (prospect development) camp.”
...i'm with you Glen, I'm pumped for this group of prospects.
Sather also says it won't be easy for Stepan to make the team out of camp, that Grachev has a legitimate chance of maiking the club and that Pasnin (who I posted about earlier today) reminds him of Kasparaitis.
...once again, really loving Sather's take on the Rangers prospects and his thoughts on their chances to make an impact this year. Great job Glen. Did I just type that?
