Renney's no fool. He played, and coached this team to their strengths. But that's where the real joke is. This current team, can't even excel in the little areas of the game.

The Jed Ortymeyer's, Steve Rucchin's, Dominic Moore's, and Ryan ****ing Hollweg's were capable of playing a simple, countering system that rewarded attention to detail. Yet their better replacements couldn't
The counter to this argument is that the new players may not have the same strengths as the old players, and Renney actually didn't play to their strengths and instead tried to treat them as the players they replaced.

Don't know that I believe that, but I don't think Sather really just set Renney up for failure (at least in the way people have been saying), especially considering we have heard that Renney had input on who to sign.
