I'd say his patience with Lundqvist paid off. Wouldnt you?
Say you want to give Sather credit for drafting Lundqvist, which is an ominous way to view things.

How about Sather drafting a goaltender with the 6th overall pick in 2004? At the very least it shows he had zero clue what he had in Lundqvist. I'm chalking this one up to pure luck, which is something you need when drafting, but not a good thing when it produces your one and only dominant home grown player over the past 13 years.
