You're using the benefit of hindsight. You're assuming there was a plan in place to replace Torts when the Gaborik trade was made.

The roster is not full of players who are going to thrive in the current system.

Oh, there's no doubt in my mind the Sather thinks that.

No, there are more players than coaches. It's up to the coach to get the most out his players. Players can't make themselves skate faster or score more goals. You play to your team's strengths.

And I don't care if the team was unwatchable Being watchable isn't the goal. Winning is. And truth be told this season has been some of the most unwatchable hockey I've seen.

To let AV get the players he wants and implement his system is to just keep the revolving door going. So in three years they can get another coach and start the wheel of disfunction again?
