His knowledge of the game is unquestionable, but he treats players like tokens on a board game instead of respecting them as people. As a result, they don't want to play for him, and won't buy into his system. With the Rangers, Barry Beck chose retirement over continuing to play for the Sator and Reijo Ruotsalainen opted to return to Europe. With the Sabres, Sator drove Lindy Ruff to resign his captaincy and demand a trade. He acts like Mike Keenan without the track record of success to back it up. A builder of team chemistry, he is not.

I disagree with your assessment Buffaloe-ed, since I think your perspective is skewed to just Buffalo or NY. He has coached at every level, and internationally in Sweden, Italy, Finland, and now Slovenia. If Reijo disliked him so much then why did he come to be his Assistant in the ECHL in New Orleans in the late '90s, at basically no pay? If he is so Keenan-esque, as you say, why did he leave a contract extension on the table to remain as his assistant in St. Louis and tell Keenan he didn't want to work with him any more? And at that time he didn't have another job lined up. He ended up going to coach with his friend Paul Holmgren at Hartford Whalers, btw.
So Zamo, just another opinion for you. I think you have a great Coach who has great teaching skills to help bring Slovenia hopefully back into the A pool. Good luck!

He got sacked here in Finland in my favorite Team(Espoon Blues). Team played so bad hockey that it hurt my eyes... shoot the puck to the zone and get it back, that was his tactics.

My immediate memory of Ted Sator is his connection to Dave Poulin. This article is mainly about Poulin but it discusses his pro beginnings to Sator and Sweden:

He just got kicked out of Alba Volán, in Hungary.

I don't know where he's heading.

He didn't manage to do anything in Volán.

A little unexpected. The team seemed to have improved this year compared to last season. Either there are some personality conflicts or perhaps this could be some sort of cost saving move.

I wonder who will end up replacing him.

But compared to be an ex NHL coach, he didn's show up much. Volán's GM said that Sator didn't take his job seriosly enough, and he didn't put up heart...ANd that's the least he could do.

I don't doubt that he's a good coach, but I think that there are better then him.

I hope that they'll find a good coach, maybe a swedish or german...But u know "small money, small hockey"

They signed Jarmo Tolvanen - a Finn - and have already signed a couple of Finnish players. I think that goalie Mikko Tolvanen is either his son or nephew. It will be interesting to see if he ends up in Hungary as well.

Son... I don´t think a young promising goalie would sign in Hungary

Correct, his son signed with Espoo Blues. Interesting, it seems that quite a few Finns are coaching in Hungary these days.

Coincidentally, Alba Volan managed to find a Finn goaltender...

...Tommi Satosaari.

They also recently added a Finnish winger as well, Teemu Elomo.

Elomo should do very well at that level. Good signing!

Elomo had three assists in two exhbition games against EBEL teams...

...Fehervar won both.

With the new Fins, the addtition of Ladanyi and the two Vas brothers, Szekesfehervar will be a much better team this year.

Sator-Croatia

Good position for him - they have good team that seems to be under-achieving - hope they get into the playoffs their first year - the fan support is great there in year one!
