And how exactly did Renney do more with less? He lost something like 13 or the last 15 games before he was fired. You're telling me that's something to be proud of? The team the year prior to that with Jagr was at least as good as this one, so the whole point is moot.
And no, I don't think it's the same system also.
And we were lead to believe that a simple coaching change would solve all the team's problems.
People always said that team's success under Renney was the result of Jagr and Lundqvist. Right now any success the team has under Torts is the result of Gaborik and Lunddvist.
People were bored by Renney's teams. This team is pretty much the same — of course it's always must see TV when you never know when the head coach might blow a gasket. Of course you can see that kind of stuff just walking the streets in Manhattan.
And Renney losing 13 of 15? Look at the record after the 7-1 start.
