Still beating that same old drum, haha. Since 1992, 20 uninterrupted years running a team...
-A grand total of six playoff series won.
-5 seasons out of 20, he got a team past the first round of the playoffs.
-One trip to the conference finals.
-The last 13 years spent with every single luxury and resource at his disposal.
How is Glen Sather anything but one of the worst general managers/front office executives in the history of major American professional team sports? As far as the NHL goes, only Mike Milbury has done a worse job in the last 20 years. No one else even comes close.
At the very least, John Tortorella has been a head coach in the NHL for about 10 years total. He's taken his teams to the playoffs 7 times, he's won a Stanley Cup, and he's won 7 playoff series. For the record, that's more than Glen Sather-managed teams have won in the last 20 years.
