Somewhat.

Basically, I think its ridiculous that folks who have made it to the top levels of NHL management thought that squad was giving $85+ to Drury/Gomez away from legitimately competing for a cup.

Those teams were less lightning in a bottle and more a one-line squad with a great goaltender.

Overall, Sather has given me no confidence that he can walk and chew gum at the same time as an executive. When one hole opens, he fixes it (usually poorly), and another hole usually opens. We are currently in a vicious cycle of swinging between top-end talent and depth.
