He's made some good trades, and has obviously abandoned his pre-lockout stack the team with stars approach. As far as I'm concerned, Sather handed Torts the 2nd most talented team in the league this season and Torts crapped the damn bed with his asinine approach to the roster. The front office has gotten some serious talent out onto the ice. Time to have a coach that can utilize it, kind of like Torts SAID he would. ("safe is death"... yeah... this squad was worse than Renney in that aspect by the end of his tenure)
The problem with the Richards signing was that the owners were already beating the drum for a lower cap and lower player % of HRR along with the elimination of burying bad contracts in the minors...all of those things came true with the new CBA. Some team will get him at a salary more in line with his diminished skills after the buyout.
