For the record, I think that PRE lockout Sather was a
GM. Terrible drafting, suspect trading, mind-boggling coaching appointments.
POST lockout, however, he has been one of the league's better GMs. Very solid drafting, excellent trading, shrewd coaching appointments. Free agents are still his Achilles' heel. Still, he gets a very solid B from me post-lockout and on.
Something changed, whether it was pressure from the management to WIN NOW, or maybe he was drunk on Dolan's money after managing cash-strapped Oilers for so long. Whatever it was, he has been a different GM, and one I'd be very reluctant to let go unless someone one Holland was coming back.
