my guess is that the reason dellapina stuck this in his blog instead of making it an article is because 'making the rounds' means a bunch of fans emailed him asking, NOT that there were legit sources talking about it.
renney is going nowhere anytime soon...ron lowe missed the playoffs 3 straight years before he got fired, not a chance in hell sather/dolan fire renney after MAKING the playoffs 3 years in a row. that might not seem like a big deal (and oh how fast we forget 98-04) but for this franchise it IS. and
when the rangers make the playoffs next year,
renney will be only the 2nd coach in franchise history to make the playoffs each of his 1st 4 seasons behind the bench (the other was lester patrick back in the 20s). rational people that use logic, don't fire a guy like that
A bit presumptuous don't you think?
These rumors don't surprise me at all. The only way I see Renney not coaching next season is if HE doesn't want to. Other than that, Renney is going nowhere.
