I find it more than a coincidence that he cannot stick to an NHL team.
In other words, there are other circumstances that have to do with why he's left.
Yes, he's underachieved compared to his draft position. Yes, those teams chose to spend money elsewhere. That doesn't mean they couldn't wait to get rid of the guy.
I do not care about his draft position. What I care about is that teams have not found him good enough for him to stick with. They have found better ways to spend money. Sather has not.
Hell, for all we know he's really weird and just loves 1 year deals.
He must be the one player in the entire league who does not want job security.
