Sather said, “coaching philosophies on team don’t change an awful lot. I think you need to change your coach once in a while because your players get tired of listening to him. It’s easier to change the coach than it is to change 30 players. It doesn’t make him a bad coach, the two coaches that swapped teams this year, I am sure they are both great guys and great coaches. I am getting to know AV now. He is a terrific guy and Tortorella is a great guy. It’s just time to move on. I fired myself when I was coaching here because it was time to move on and make a change.”
Sather spoke a lot about the coaching change during Alain Vigneault’s press conference.
