After 05-06, it was quite obvious that Sather thought that the team could make a run for the Cup with Jagr. 06-07 made that dream seem even more real. I think most Rangers fans felt the same. That's why Shanny, Gomez, Drury, & Redden were brought in. Only Shanahan was a good signing.
The bright side was that in spite of all that, Sather never traded away any promising young players. Name me one player that he's traded away that ended up being a star elsewhere. Tyutin's far from a star, so don't say him. I guess Kim Johnsson was pretty good, but no star. I know some people will never forgive him for trading Leetch and especially since that first rounder that was gotten for him ended up being Korpikoski. At least Sauer came from that.
