The problem here is that Sather has made making the playoffs the cornerstone of his tenure here. Those are his words and his goal. How else are we supposed to judge him?

Rebuilding the farm system is nice, but Sather's main goal is to make the playoffs and win the Stanley Cup. For 3 years he's failed. Right now, we are not a playoff team and there are absolutely no guarantees that we will become one by the end of the season. When are we allowed to judge Sather's tenure? Only after he's retired and left NY?
