Even JD brought this up. Honestly TB, it seems a little coincidental that Low, Trottier and Renney all have the same game strategy, if you can call it that, as Sather. Clearly, the team is being coached from the skybox or, at best, Renney is on a very short leash because that game had "Head coach, Glen Sather" all over it.

While the man we acquired to be our center our checking line is playing on the top scoring line, the kid we drafted to be a scoring center is on the checking line. Makes sense to me! Hey, I'll be the first to admit that Lundmark is playing like ass, but he's on a line with 2 players who have fewer career NHL goals than Jagr has THIS SEASON. How is this the "chance he's be waiting for"? By not putting Jamie and Jagr together, or even Balej for that matter, Sather has already sealed his fate and has a convenient excuse to deal him on draft day. Just another example of what happens when you've fallen out of favor under this regime.
