I love how Sather is not at fault here for changing the core of this team. No wonder he is still in charge, most fans seem content with his actions and barely critique his constant garbage roster overhauls.
Torts was begging for more offense at the end of the 2012 playoffs. Sather got it for him. Nothing changed.

The true fall of the team this past year was Tortorella expecting square pegs to fit into round holes. Sather got him a team with more skill, and Torts wanted them to play the way the 11-12 team did. It was a terrible decision on the coaches part. I don't see how the team at the start of the '13 season on paper was a team destined to be made into a 6-goalie team.

Loaded with speed, decent enough depth, and a plethora of two-way defensemen. Block shots, play below the goal line, or get traded/benched.

This year's team could have been more. It still frustrates me.
