But then again this is the man who in the past month has sounded off like a moron about everything from "I'm a lameduck GM" to "The penalty to Bertuzzi was too stiff".

I've met the guy, never liked the guy and probably never will. He's a jerk. Funniest part is {and i know this has been mentioned before} how HARD he tries to make everyone believe he is from Canada. When you talk to the guy, he tries to put on a little accent, he tries to spin his background a little.

He's a smart GM, but he's not necessarily respected by his peers like someone with his resume should be.
that attitude reminds me of sather... condescending f'in ***** i cant stand his smug looks and arrogant talk.. guy is a puss and proved it when he went on a radio show in bc talking crap about the nyr faithful.. ive always tried to be respectful to certain FO people when i have crossed paths with them (s phillips and s layden) but sather is one guy i will love nothing more then to tell him how i feel to his face...
