We can say it? No, it is it. Gaborik alone makes the difference.
If they are virtually the same, then last year wasn't Renney's fault. And Torts isn't doing a good job.
We at least saw what Renney could do with Hank and one elite forward.
Last year's team quit on Renney. Whether that's "his fault" or not is not for me to say as I wasn't in the locker room. However, that's enough to remove the coach.
Whether Tortorella was the right man for the job remains to be seen, however, he was the right man at the time to give the team a swift kick in the nuts to make the playoffs. I personally would have preferred Laviolette, but I was satisfied with Tortorella at the time.
I agree, that at this point Tortorella is not doing a good job with what he has. We shouldn't be THIS bad.
I think that the main issue lays on Sather, but unfortunately we're stuck with Mr. GM For Life for a while.
