It's nice to see Renney getting the team he wants. I don't think he's ever been full of excuses. If anything, he should be commended for making due with what he had under the circumstances. Everyone had us as favorites to win the conference or even the Cup this year because of our offensive lineup. However, when things weren't working out, he turned a team with 'no defense to speak of' into one of the best defensive teams in the league. That's impressive no matter how you look at it.

Renney is a coach that knows where he wants to go with the team, but more importantly, knows what he has to work with. This isn't a case of throwing money at big names and hoping they work; each of these guys that were brought in fit the system he's working towards. Fast forwards with a lot of individual skill, puck moving defensemen and a goalie who can stand on his head if need be.

Personally, I think we're one top-six forward away from competing for the Eastern Conference title.
