The issue is that, you can't keep having them play at the same level, while showing little signs of improvement.
On the other hand is another issue, how many more roster fixups will Sather make? None of his teams will ever gel.
Pretty tough situation going on with the Rangers at the moment.
It's like the opposite of 2011-12... this team is worse than the sum of its parts. But you are right, I think some of our players are overrated or are declining.
Sather has created quite the conundrum once again. Most of the rosters he puts together and the players he chooses to build around are flawed to begin with, which results in an inevitable overhaul. While this roster clearly isn't getting the job done, odds are the next roster he constructs won't either. The man just needs to retire and let Gorton or someone else make the big decisions.
