Simply put: regardless of personnel and the farm system, this team is no closer to making the playoffs then they were when Sather took over.

This is now his team (in everyway possible - his players, his draft picks, hell he's coaching the damn team). The team lacks a personality, work ethic, and heart. He has not addressed the teams issues on defense. He has attempted to rebuild a mid 80s Oiler team with All-Stars (or should I say former All-Stars) at every position but without an cohesion. He is stuck playing a brand of hockey that is long since ended and he has refused to change with the times. Add in the fact that he refuses to hire a proven coach for the simple reason that his ego will not allow him to.
