But since Sather came in the Rangers have gotten a lot better at drafting, building a team, having a real farm system, being somewhat competitive, albeit in a mediocre way. I don't know if someone else could have done the same thing or do any better, but he at least helped the Rangers not be the joke of the NHL.

This. Look at the majority of the cup winning teams post-lockout. Most had a top 5 pick in the lineup.

Kane, Crosby, E. Staal, Seguin, etc.
