I don't care about Dolan's savings either. He is trying to make himself look here and that he truly has a firm grasp and direction for this club.
And Sather NEVER acts prematurely/proactively, ever. The proof is in the pudding on that. He didn't hire Vigneault until Dallas was wooing him and applying pressure. Hell, as RB posted earlier today, he didn't compliance buyout Holik till the last possible moment. There are more examples of this kind of behavior throughout his tenure.
Do you really think that Sather or any GM for that matter would publicly state that if his coach didn't go far in the playoffs he would be fired?????
Some of the stuff posted in this thread really makes me
