And when he finally hit the wall, the organization played yo-yo with a prospect coming out of college, before finally addressing the problem in the off-season. Can't say I was surprised through--this is also a brain trust that allowed a 19 year old to start 17 straight games after Richter got hurt.

It's sad it took Sather 10 years to realize that it's important to have more than one NHL caliber goaltender in the organization.
So? That wasn't the reason he got injured and probably wouldn't have hurt his development. It is not like the team was going anywhere that year.
