Let The Games Begin

The prelims are over and the Rangers didn't do too badly. I'm not talking about the record, 4-2, but about the makeup and the future prospects for success. If what I saw in the prelims, lots of youth, continues, there is hope for the future even if we fail to make the playoffs. Now we wait for the final cuts to see if we have the guts to stick with the youth.

A source of mine has told me that there is a minor spat going on as to the direction of the team. The Stealth GM prefers keeping the older vets as oppossed to the coach going for the youth. The Stealth needs wins, a playoff and maybe some playoff wins. The coach is trying to build a team for the future. For the Stealth, the future is now, as it has been for the last ten years. His track record has been a disaster and he and he alone is to blame for the state of this team.

But you know how these fights go. If the coach wins he has to produce or he will soon seek new employment. For the Stealth, it doesn't matter, he has tenure. We got off to a good start in waiving Redden. Do we really want or need Rozsival, Drury, Prospal and White? I don't think so. You know what's the worst part of getting old? Getting old. Let youth be served.

    Look for Torts to ask Idiot to dump Eminger if they can bring in Shane O'Brien. For an extra half million, he can get someone he trusts.

    Also, Shane O'Brien is a lefty. Eminger is a a righty. The Rangers need a lefty on defense, as they only have two now - Stahl and del Zotto.
