He hired Gorton. He hired Clark. He acquiesced significant responsibilities to competant staff. Wow! What a horrible manager of personnel!
The idea that Sather rode solo on the decisons to sign Gaborik and Richards, trade for Nash, trade for Clowe, sign Drury/Gomez etc is stupid.
They have these guys called scouts. Scouts go and scout, then report back to the staff.
name me the scout(s) who reported to Sather that Drury have hands like Stu Grimson, where Gomez would forget how to set up plays, where Richards would show up to camp lazy and disinterested.
Are they the same scouts who told him to get McDonagh? To ask for Moore and Brassard for Gaborik? To make Dubinsky the centerpiece of a Rick Nash deal?
You win some, you lose some. There were 22 GMs who by these boards standards had a miserable season. Thrown in Shero in there as well, and this guy supposedly built the next Oilers dynasty yet they havent won a game past the 2nd round since 2009.
