So Sather gets no credit for drafting and building around the franchises greatest goaltender?

Say what you want about state of affairs, but had Sather not drafted Lundqvist, we could be looking at the 15th straight year of not making the playoffs. The mediocrity between 2006 and today is far less painful than the horrors of the Jan Mertzig era.
