How is Torts is worse off with Gaborik/Kotalik/Prospal/MDZ/Gilroy than Renney was with Zherdev/Gomez/Naslund/Mara/Kalinin?
Wasn't just talking about last year. i was talking about all 4 Renney teams. his first 3 years he had more to work with than Torts does.

last year... not so much.

Although defensively Mara and kalinin are much better than MDZ/gilroy. Offensively its the oppossite. And mara had some grit to his game.

And Gomez/Nazzy is about equal to Kots (who is worthless) and Prospal. Gaborik obviously is miles ahead of Zherdev and anybody else.

I get it, the guy is a year older than he was last season, but give me a break. A good coach doesn't take a PP producer like Drury off the freaking PP and wonder why he isn't scoring goals.
No what I am saying is that now Drury's body and age is catching up to him and his body is physically breaking down. That's not Torts' fault. I don't think any coach could get much more out of Drury. I really feel like Drury's career is basically over, and he is nothing more than a mediocre 3rd liner.

We in no way were a superior team. Many people thought we would be eliminated in 5 games. We were lucky to get to 7 games. Renney would not have faired any better at all and I don't know if he would have gotten us to 7 games.

Getting suspended was ********, and was an awful awful move by him. And he definately hurt the team.
