You

Dolan had a chance to make a stand last year and he didn't. If I were Dolan, I would have done the following:

When Sather came to me and told me that he was going to fire Trottier, I would have said this to him, "Glen, I hired you to get this team back in the playoffs. In the two and half seasons you have been here you have fired two coaches that you hired. If you want to fire Trottier, fine. But I am not going to pay for another coach. You coach this team. And get them into the playoffs. Otherwise, you are out of not one job but two jobs."

Sort of like what he did do with Neil Smith, when Smith wanted to fire Muckler. Afterall, Smith only won this organization a Stanley Cup, while Sather has...umm...what has he done to deserve such faith?
