Something you build around, something you draft players, trade for players and sign players who fit that mold.
I mean, what is the organizations philosophy? If it's to grind and outwork opponents, then why is Taylor Pyatt, Derick Brassard or Benoit Pouliot on this team?
If it's to be uptempo and take the offense to the other team, why does anyone thing you can do that when there's only one legit top offensive player on the roster (who now might be a concussion concern — although I have my own theory on that).
People want to blame Dolan. Well, outside of not firing Sather by now (yes, that's not a small thing), he's the exact owner you want — not really involved and willing to spend money. He built a state-of-the-art training center, has allowed his GM to not only be active in the free agent market but also pay those failed signings 6M to play minor league hockey or pay those failed minor league signings to play for anyone but the Rangers.
For chrissake, somebody in this organization — do the hard work.
I was hoping Gorton would be that guy. Assuming he hasnt been poisoned by Sather's laziness.
I get the impression that Sather thinks hes still Mr. Big Shot from his success in the 80's...that he can still make decisions "from the gut." Here in 2013, hes about the only one who hasn't realized the game passed him by decades ago. Bravado is a funny thing.
