I really don't think Sather is lazy or complacent at all. I just don't think he's that great at building a team without a huge offensive force to build it around. I mean, look at the team he built around Jagr. Look at the team he built around Gretzky. Those are the only two times he's ever had that kind of caliber of a player to build around and both times he built great teams (the Rangers one obviously had a very limited window due to Jagr's age). I think he would probably have built an awesome team around Crosby. Part of that is his own fault, since he never seems to draft that player either.
I don't think Dolan is lazy or complacent either. I think he's just disinterested.
Neither are good for this organization.
