Until Sather starts to act like a normal GM and be a conduit to the fans like Neil Smith used to do, I will go under the premise that he just sits back and smokes his cigar. Then every year before free agency he is awoken and makes impulse purchases.

In contrast, Brian Burke (yes the media pressure is much greater in Toronto) is basically broadcasting to the fans 24/7. You know he's on top of his **** (even though I hate the job hes done) because he exhibits it on a daily basis. With Sather the occasional quote leaked to the media like "the most deserving players, regardless of contract will play" does not prove to me that he is on top of stuff.
