It should but it won't. Honestly if you're looking and hoping for the start of an honest rebuilding this season, you really need to hope for a string of devastating injuries. That's an awful thing to wish for, but only the season-long loss of Lindros, Leetch, Dunham, Kasper, and one of Jagr/Kovalev/Holik along with lesser injurues to several role players would force Sather to concede the season. Injuries in that quantity and to that degree simply couldn't be made up through trades and call-ups. Sather would be forced to call it quits and look to next year.

The problem with that scenario is that Sather definitely comes back next season. If that many critical components are lost for good, Dolan has the perfect rationalization for bringing back Sather in either or both of his current capacities.
