Tyutin's best year was his first year w/o Renney. It could be just coincidence though as he didn't have to play with Girardi (who I still think is the most overrated player on the Rangers for every season except when he first came to the league).

Korps he benched for no reason.

he did do a good job for Cally and Dubi and Staal.

I will not give him any credit for Henrik. henrik was already a great goalie (ridiculous in swedish leagues), and truthfully his success goes to Allaire. Just like I wouldn't give torts credit for a goalie.

never said torts was a mastermind. I think that he does make some very questionable moves as well.

Torts does overplay some lines too much. Especially when our 4th line really isn't that bad. a 4th line of HBO shouldn't get more than 5 min. they sometimes got 10. That is horrible.
