From a financial perspective, Sather has been downright phenomenal running the Rangers ship over the last 8 years, financial hits from bad personnel decisions or not.
Do the Rangers make money because of Glen Sather? Or do they make money because they are an 87 year old institution with a very loyal fanbase within one of the biggest cities of the world?

The only thing Dolan has proven is that he can hire a guy who hasnt had his hand on the pulse of the NHL in 25 years, and still make oodles of money. If he wasn't handed the keys to the Garden thanks to Daddy, he might actually possess the drive to hire a better GM, which would make him even more money.
