People are blind if they didnt identify the massive shortcomings inherent in Torts' philosophy.

Blame Sather all you want -- how many friggin moves did the GM make to supply the coach with a team he could work with? People act like Sather sat back with the 2009 team and set Torts up for failure.

Torts had the game's best goalie, one of the game's top-3 RW, the one of best groups of young D-men in the league, at least four or five young two-way forwards with size, and one of the best playmaking centers in league. On top of that, he would actually ADD one of the game's top goal scorers.

Sather did his job. Aside from tanking like Pitt, Chicago, and Washington, what other options did he have? Draft franchise centers and Norris winners between 19th-28th overall every year? Sure. Thats a reasonable expectation.
