Bluenote...

that comment by Sather pretty much shows why this team is where it is today. Slats falls in love with projects. He loves swinging for the fences and saying he found someone else's garbage and made it into gold and that he's a master of finding these gems. This is why Redden's here, and probably why Renney now is not (because of the team he put together).

Rags - Shanny may've helped this team. Perhaps leadership was a missing quantity on this team and he may've been that influence that kept the players going, even when not listening to Renney. Of course, ice time would've been the key issue.

But I guess we need to get past what would've helped this team. I think this board is in 100% agree that Sather is a screw-up. Between his non-signings and his signings he's done a pretty bad job aside from getting Jagr which really helped him shape the entire roster coming out of the lockout. He didn't do much to enhance the team or prepare it well for the post-Jagr days. Hopefully Torts is what this team needed, since they stopped listening to their coach. They have shown an ability to play well; we'll see which team shows up for the stretch run.
