So, we are to believe that Sather wanted to go young and build through the draft all along, but someone above him (only Dolan is above him) disagreed. Yet we've been told time and again that the job is Sather's for as long as he wants it and Dolan lets him do whatever he wants. Which is it? I'm guessing the latter.

Sather never had a plan. You don't run the team the way he did pre-lockout if you have a plan. And you don't sign Drury, Gomez and Redden if you have a plan. Hell, you probably don't sign Gaborik and Richards if you have a plan because you can't depend on free agency to build a team.

We are where we are because of people like Clark and Gorton. If you want to give Sather credit for hiring them, sure, go ahead. But I'd be thrilled if Sather announced his retirement at the end of the year and Clark and Gorton took over totally, if they haven't already.
