Sather himself said that 6-5 games are more exciting to 1-0 games. Nevermind the fact that this team isn't capable of winning like that and that most games are no longer high scoring on a regular basis. Any coach is going to struggle with the unrealistic expectations that Sather has set.
I could see that spin. I could even see a few idiots actually buying it.

But all I really see if 5 years salary wasted on another fired coach, a subsequent Brad Richards buy-out, and more money being sucked out of the hockey budget because of stupid decisions.
