No, his argument is that Sather sees an extended work stoppage coming and has no idea what's coming out on the other side.

So, rather than managing this team to compete at some uncertain date under some uncertain rules (and understanding that the timing and new rules could easily undo any planning he does now), Sather may be thinking "I know I can go for it now and then I'll deal with 'next season' when I actually know when it'll be and what it'll look like."

This doesn't necessarily mean that he's going to completely screw the team for future years with no consideration towards what might happen in 2014, rather that he's not going to let $2MM of cap space either way stop him from taking his best shot now.
