Sather had everything in his favor coming in here. He had Smith's last three years as a built in excuse to tear everything down. He had the opportunity to completely rebuild the organization and set it up for the next ten years. Instead, he couldn't find a proper head coach, especially at a time when two quality head coaches hit the market. And, don't give me hindsight is 20/20. Ranger fans were pleading for either Hitchcock or Burns to be given a shot. Instead, he hires Trottier, a newcomer, to handle a team that cried out for a heavy hand. He has wasted whatever trading chips he had on players that simply don't fit together. I was not against trading York, Malhotra, Hlavac, Dvorak or Brendl. But, for what was acquired, the pieces have never fit. Sather has made this franchise a joke, and the league considers him a relic of an era long passed. Yeah, that's 20/20 hindsight. Give me a break!
