Trying to get Crosby wouldn't have been rebuilding? I think you're just quibbling there to change the way we look at the events at the end of the 03-04 season.

The team was going to be simply awful that season for sure. And it was a conscious decision. We ended up rebuilding anyway, by the way. It just took until 10-11 where we saw the fruits of it. Slow rebuild because we were competitive during that time. It was an organizational change in direction, more than a full on roster overhaul, that was the real hallmark of the rebuild.

All of that being said, I agree that Sather hasn't been much more than average. I would've said he had been above average until the Nash trade. Sometimes, his ability to evaluate his own team is still lacking.
