A 90 year old franchise and nothing is sacred.
As someone who will cheer when Sather is finally gone even if we win the cup the next five consecutive years for the sole reason of the Brian Leetch situation, I have a lot of trouble sympathizing with Messier here. As far as we know, Sather simply didn't think he was the right man for the job. It's not like he was bullied; he was passed up in favor of a former Jack Adams winner.
