I undersatnd what Sather was up to. I know. I also know the result of his innability to operate under cap. He really expected talented players to take less in order to help him out. Or else. Guess what? The ELSE has happened. Only people desperate to get a job would agree to pay cuts. As a result we have a team completed of players of that kind. To get results out of such group the different HC was needed. Torts gets max out of his plumbers, he deserves a credit for that. What became impossible wasto lure talent back. There is no room for talent there. For that Slats have to replace Torts with someone able to work with stars, just to start. It won't happen. He gave Torts an extention instead.
