Finally we get a coach who plays a real system, that works no less. And the players don't enjoy it. They try, but they give up, cause defensively, the sytem holds if you don't turnover the puck at inoppurtune times and score on the PP. These guys were not that talented, they'd have to put out 100% every night and finally they gave up.
we did get a real system, that works, but not a real system that gets the most out of your players.

The 06-07 team should have gotten by the Sabres.

The 07-08 team DRASTICALLY underachieved. Jagr, Straka, Shanny, Drury, Gomez, Avery, Staal, Rosy, girardi, Tyutin, Lundy. This team should have gotten to at least the ECF. There is absolutely NO Reason for the lack of scoring on this team, and a crap PP. That is all Renney not getting the most out of his players. Renney also got schooled by Therrion in the pittsburgh series. Renney was horrible at changing gameplans mid game to counteract another teams strategy, and Renney was horrible w/ personel decisions.

Sorry, but a better coach, such as Lavs, Quenville, Babcock, Ruff, Hitchcock, Sutter, Torts would have gotten more out of those teams.
