Look, despite what his expert critics on here say, the cupboard was bare of prospects and the organization lacked the professionals in the scouting and developmental departments. All of that has changed now. UFAs were necessary for several reasons the least of which was putting a product on the ice to put fannies in the seats. This is not Pittsburgh, NJ or LI where you can tank it and nobody cares. Sather is no different than any of his 29 peers. Sometimes you swing and hit a HR, sometimes you whiff.
Through it all he's still retained his trade capabilities. Seldom has he been on the wrong side. Now witht he right coach and quality personnel people decisions and direction are made easier. Sure he's made some really bad signings, but so have the guys across the rivers and no one says squat about them. One of them has had more coaches than carter has pills.
In the end you win some you lose some. Along the way you hope you've gotten smarter. The Cap has made a huge difference and I think he's learned. We've never been cap impaired but the one guy thought to be a genius finds himself once again in cap hell for the 3rd time! We've yet to lose a draft pick let alone a couple of 1st rounders for screwing up signings.
