His knowledge of the game is unquestionable, but he treats players like tokens on a board game instead of respecting them as people. As a result, they don't want to play for him, and won't buy into his system. With the Rangers, Barry Beck chose retirement over continuing to play for the Sator and Reijo Ruotsalainen opted to return to Europe. With the Sabres, Sator drove Lindy Ruff to resign his captaincy and demand a trade. He acts like Mike Keenan without the track record of success to back it up. A builder of team chemistry, he is not.
