You can choose to ignore the stress NY places on sports teams if you want. But it'd be better to understand that he has done a decent job of "retooling" after inheriting a mess. A team in as huge of a market will NEVER rebuild completely. We went from a team with retreads like Zdeno Ciger while having no prospects to a team with some talent and a pretty deep prospect pool. I don't see anyone complaining about the fact that we're now seeing guys like Tyutin, Henke, Prucha, Girardi, Dubinsky, Staal etc. come through.
He's done his job sufficiently.
Seems like you're just angry Sather wasn't able to play the part of God and tank a year or two to get a number one draft pick. You'd have to be one slick son of a ***** to convince NY fans that being the worst team in the league would be worth it.
