A view from an outsider - Torts style or Renny style -- I don't know. However, I do know that the Rangers have defensive problems. And Gaborik talking about defense -- he's reminded of his days under Lemaire. He talked about in in really in early in the season about being better defensively, him and the team. When Gaborik is talking about defense then you know there are defensive lapses.

I also think Brooks is doing a disservice when he just calls being defensively responsible Renney's system. Over the course of the last 2 1/2 months, Torts has tightened the defense to reduce odd man rushes. He's most likely making sure that the d-men know when to pinch in and when not to and to have a forward cover the point to limit odd man rushes. Is it Renney hockey or is it just smart hockey?
