Sather would remain as President of the Rangers.
...That has been rumored for a long-time, the only part missing here is that Wayne Gretzky takes over as coach. This is the way that people believe the Rangers future management will take place, but I have my doubts that it happens after this year. Messier is in his first year back with the team, and still needs more time to fully understand how to work things out as a GM. Again, this is only a belief and not a report of something concrete. But many people that I have spoken with, think that this will happen at some point, probably over the next three seasons, so that Messier can have a better understanding of the day to day and overall work that needs to be done.
This would be a nice present for most Ranger fans, though, who knows what Sather would do still as President and probably having final say on moves.
