If you think that Sather initiated this trade, then you're an idiot too. Gotta call it what it is.

It would be nice if people add intelligent thoughts instead of fairy-tales in their heads.
@JamesU @Ranger Dave
WTF? What world do you live in? Sather did not seek out Yzerman for this trade, it was a trade Yzerman was forced to make with NY. Dude, get informed or get off
Well, he's never going to get a cup, so what does that mean?

Yzerman had no choice but to trade MSL to Rangers. If you're giving props to Sather, you are an idiot. Sather gave away one of the two draft picks. He could have replaced one with one of our crappy prospects (who will never make it in the NHL like Fast, or Kristo) and then trade Callahan to SJ or Columbus for other assets..Draft picks are a huge commodity right now because of the talent thats available and cap space compliancy. So while everyone is reluctant to trade these away, our GM is clueless regarding building for the future. Next time we need help and we're up against the cap space with no one in our system to recall, thank Sather.
Flyers have won seven of last eight, and in second place. I'd say thats a top team.
It's a small, small, small, small world. No, I'm not referring to Disney on ice, I'm referring to the Rangers on ice. ANYONE who believes we will be competing for a Stanley Cup does not know anything about hockey. For God's sake, look at the elite teams in the NHL - Ducks, Blues, Kings, Blackhawks, Bruins, Flyers, Penguins, - they all are constructed of mostly BIG players. How foolish to think we can plow through any of these teams when we are one of if not the smallest and softest team in the NHL. St. Louis is a great player but a waste on our team. And who else did we trade for, - a small defenseman! Glen Sather is one terrible GM. He was the only GM yesterday to trade away a no1 draft choice, and he had Yzerman in a corner! He also caved in on Lundqvist's contract - overpaid, overextended, and a NTC! All you Ranger fans who are dreaming of a Cup, we SUCK, and will suck until Sather is gone! Sorry for you (and me)!

Sather better not think he's done for the day. We have a SMALL, SOFT team.
4 days, 22 hours ago on Rangers Trade Callahan, Picks to Tampa for St. Louis
I have a feeling that Marty St.Louis makes Tampa trade him to NY. Should be something like Callahan or Brassard + Fast + 1st round
5 days, 4 hours ago on TheNYRBlog Trade Deadline Tracker (3/4/14)
As the Hockey News points out, this is the 10yr. anniversary of the week in which Sather made a trade with every team in Canada! That included Brian Leetch, Alex Kovalev, and Mathew Barnaby. Some of the returns we received were mind-boggling. Its only appropriate that I propose such management with a blockbuster (actually quite reasonable but most unlikely). I have read that Carolina was told to try to cut payroll, and they are considering moving Jordan Stall. So here we go... Eric and Jordan Stall to NY for Richards, Stepan, and Hagelin.

Leafs just put Frazer Mclaren on waivers....there's an enforcer we need, and in time to play Toronto next game!

Tuka Rask faced 20 shots in the first period with no defense in front of him and kept his team in the game to win it.
Miller and Lindberg are worth exploring. Kristo is trade bait.

Great assessment. Just remember, Callahan just finished playing on the US Olympic team (an All-Star team) where he logged a lot of TOI. He is valuable for the role he plays.

Oh really? I thought I was actually making trades! These are just suggestions/opinions, and on my part, done with a little research. As an avid hockey fan, I know that Chi. has been disenchanted with Bickell's play this year, and are looking for a second line center, thus a possible connection. As for Hanzal, I know that Phoenix is very budget-constrained and will only make a trade if it's dollar for dollar. Here, I'm just hoping that they might be looking for a change in direction. Now, go get on the people who post trades that they pull out of their ass.
Bring up McIlrath and Hanley and everyone else plays a whole lot bigger!
I get the chemistry thing, and like Brassard as our 3rd line c.,if we had no holes to fill, but if we could trade him for a big first line winger who will protect our players, then I'm all over that.
I believe another issue to address before Wed. is trading Stepan for a real no.1 center (Hanzal /Phoenix - is bigger, plays with more grit, same salary) and Brassard (for a big winger- Bickell/Chicago or Stewart/Buffalo) Brassard could be replaced internally with Miller or Lindberg. This would give us a first line with presence. Nash - Hanzal - Bickell/Stewart. Maybe this will draw out that 7.8M value we have in Nash.
First of all, Callahan is not from Buffalo, he's from Rochester, and although I have heard he grew up with Ranger posters on his bedroom wall, I'm beginning to believe that for whatever reason, getting his amount and probably the C playing for what is very close to
his 'hometown' team is not a bad thing. As Ranger fans we believe it's his loss. As a FA, it's his choice that we must all live with, right, J.B.?

@Bring back Langdon @MikeBlue What kind of ignorant statement is that? If Callahan could score goals, and not block shots, he would'nt be Ryan Callahan, he would be Alexander Semin who scores but doesn't touch anyone or does anything else and makes 7M/yr. Would you rather have him?
