Sather is 100% respected in this leauge. Anyone who thinks he isn't hasn't been paying much attention. You don't pull the trades off that Sather has in his GM career without being highly respected, almost Pontiff like.

There was an article a couple of years ago, I think it was out of Minnesota about Sather's relationship with other GM's & how likable & respected he is leauge wide.

If Messier is going to be a GM here or anywhere else Messier learning from Slats is one of the best things that could ever happen to him. Stevie Y learned from Holland & Bowman to a certain extent, he is doing just find in Tampa bay. I suspect Messier who is a very smart man, knows the game of hockey inside & out, knows how to spo & develop talented players would do just as well. The question is does he start in one of the top 5 NHL markets or does he go to a smaller market to hone his skills set.

A GM can be a GM well into there 70's as we have alreadly seen it does happen.
