Glen Sather talks to Pierre LeBrun at ESPN.com about the Rangers developing talent from within...
"It really hasn't been a change from anything we've tried to do," Sather told ESPN.com from his team office Wednesday. "It takes time for these kids to develop. The problem with free agents is, if you don't have kids that are ready to play, you have to fill the holes with somebody. I don't think the market in New York is a place where people are patient, so you try to build from within and build from without at the same time, all the while not giving up your draft picks and not trying to restrict the development of the players."
Sather adds this on fans being impatient...
"Fans, for the most part, aren't very patient," Sather said. "But I think they can see the development we've got going on here. A lot of these guys have been drafted by us, and we're still waiting for other players to come up."
...Glen, it's been 10 years and we're still waiting for legitimate success from the Rangers under you so I'd say we're beyond patient.
