Renney being a nice guy has never had to do with the fact that he was saddled with a sub-par roster that quit on him because they thought they were capable of more offense. The fact of the matter is that the core of that group is still here and is still struggling with the same issues despite the fact that we've replaced Gomez with Gaborik and Mara/Kalinin with Gilroy/Del Zotto.

How many "I told you it was Renney!!" posts were there to start the season when we were scoring 4 goals per game? Now that the offense has dried up, those same people are saying "Oh no, it's not Torts. It's the roster!" Sound familiar? It should, because it's the exact same thing many of us have been saying for the last 3 years.

Tortorella is "adapting" while Renney was "boring and stifling". Yet Tortorella is moving the team's system in the same direction that Renney did. If the 2-1-2 doesn't work, what do you think comes next? If the defense continues to get caught pinching, resulting in odd-man rushes and goals against, what is he going to tell the defense to do?

I could care less about what Dubinsky said. The fact of the matter is the team is in the same situation it was last season: They can't score. The system is irrelevant if the results are the same.

3-1-1? 4-1? 5-0? 6 and no goalie?
