Either it's all his doing--so he's a liar, or he came here and allowed himself to be dictated to by a guy who knows absolutely NOTHING about hockey--so he's a ***** for taking Dolan's money. Either way, he should be ashamed of himself.
He is BOTH. I had a flashback when he traded Brendl (I may be wrong as to the exact trade) -- Sather said something like this: "Draft picks and prospects are an unknown commodity and a gamble. Getting someone already in the NHL is a safer bet."
I know he definitely said something like that, to justify what he was doing. He made it clear that he wasn't inclined to rely on draft picks and prospects to win games.
