Failure on all 3 of these fronts brings you to the Rangers today. The only one Sather has ever really committed to is going outside the organization, and thats been a ****ing horror show because he makes such bad decisions.
The endless debates about the coach, year after year, coaching regime after coaching regime, are laughable. No coach can win without great players.

World class talent wins championships. Even the best coaches all had great players. The Rangers don't have world class talent outside of their goaltender.

Bring in any coach you want, not much will change.

Change the guy building the roster, and then, only then, will there be the possibility of finding that talent. If you don't want to rebuild and obtain high draft picks, then hire a general manager that can get you that talent through different means. Glen Sather has had 13 years, and he has yet to do so.
