So far leaving things wide open for McDonagh, Stepan, Grachev, Pashnin/Valentenko, Byers, Weise to win spots.
I hated...HATED the Boogaard signing, and didn't agree with the McIlrath pick (have since learned why they took him, though).
But otherwise, he hasn't been bad this offseason. It looks like they're proceeding with the plan to develop these top prospects and get them in the lineup, and to lock up the young NHL roster players.
We aren't a playoff team this year. But I can handle that if the main underlying focus is to develop these young players.
I'm no Sather guy either but other than Kotalik (who he cleaned up) he was pretty good last summer too.
