Sather should have been truly commited years ago with this plan. The Jagr era, then Drury era should have never happened. Those veterans should have been pawned off for future assets, or better yet, completely avoided. The half-ass rebuild he went with ultimately delayed the inevitable.
How much of that is Sather and how much is Dolan or the shareholders?

I was just as much of a Sather basher back in the day too, but that was in part due to the bagage of the Smith/Muckler era and I also realize he didn't do much with Edmonton either in the 90's, but the again, Edmonton was on a pretty strict budget with Joseph & Weight as their prime players. So even then he was handcuffed by ownership.
