This year he gave Boogaard a ridiculous 4 years/6.5 mil.

In exactly what area do you think he's improved?

The only reason he's made less/smaller mistakes in the last couple years is because he's had less cap space to work with. But he's still making the same types of mistakes. How do you not see that?

You've said that a new GM would be doing the exact same things as Sather is doing right now. So, if that's the case, then why would it be best if Sather stays on to correct his mistakes and then retires? Wouldn't it be better to get rid of him now, let the new GM get his feet wet by doing what Sather would have done anyway, and then be more prepared in 2 years when we have some cap space?

Your 2 assertions are logical opposites. If a new GM would do the same things Sather is doing, then keeping Sather can't possibly be the best course of action.
