Sarutobi never got a look into the coffin. He just didn't want the battle to become 4 on 1. Orochimaru on his own was enough of a challenge already. Perhaps it was Yondai Kazekage (Gaara's father), who Orochimaru had just recently killed.
One thing I don't understand is how Minato used Shiki Fujin to split Kyuubi into yin and yang and then sealed one in Naruto and one in the toad scroll. What did the Shinigami take then when he took Minato's soul? Odd...
