In the book “Behind The Moves,” Jason Farris spoke with NHL General Managers past and present about how they conduct business and to tell stories about their lives in hockey.
Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman had this to say about his dealings with Rangers President and GM Glen Sather:
“it’s not that you can’t trust him; I just get the feeling like he’s not an open book, that way. I’ve had very nice discussions where you think you almost agreed on something….and then he’d be like , ‘Oh, no, no, no, no. That’s not what I meant’…You have to approach [the veteran GMs] differently, because I don’t know if you can take everything at face value.”
