Sather collects busted first rounders like Crosby collects points.
Brassard, Boyle, Pyatt, Pouliot, and now Beach. Not an impact player in the bunch. Always a smart teambuilding strategy: collecting other team's mistakes. If Beach is a year or two away from hitting his peak, then it is reasonable to expect that his peak won't be very high.
And that's just for this year. Sather's rosters since the 2000s are riddled with reclamation projects.
Tedenby will be a Ranger in two years. McCardle next year.
