For all of the hell that Sather catches for not "admitting mistakes", at least he knows not to compound the mistake into a bigger one. To accept the arbitration award for $3.9 million would've put the Rangers in a precarious situation, even for this one season because they need to sign Dubi and acquire a veteran d-man to step up in case the one or two rookies out of Gilroy, Sauer, Potter, Sanguinetti or Heikkenan falter or go through "growing pains".
It was bad asset management, but Sather knew when to walk away for the greater good of the team. I hope that Z puts all that talent together some day, but I don't feel he was worth the arbitration award, nor do I feel like he had the competitive fire to earn his pay. He wanted it handed to him. Good luck in the KHL, comrade.
