Sather rightfully should be hung out to dry for the FA signings in retrospect, but what are the odds that they ALL turned out to be bad?

And, technically what's going on now is a slow rebuild. The problem is that this team does not have a game breaker. Gaborik is supposed to be, but he hasn't been this year.
I actually am not blaming Sather. I was simply saying that we haven't had good signings and that has kept the cycle going. Yea they were the right signings at the time and part of it has to do with luck.

The problem with the rebuild, is like I said, we don't have the real true star in the system and when you have to rely on free agency it's really a dice game (which we constantly lose at).

It's a cycle we aren't going to get out of anytime soon unless we make some good signings in the next couple of years (or find a gem in the draft and get a true star).
