Quit on Torts? If you are saying they quit on Torts, then in that same light they all quit on Renney last year as well. And after two identical instances, that certainly is not the fault of the coach. These guys are professionals. They get paid to play this game. This isn't a Might Ducks movie where someone doesn't like the coach and bails on his team.

These guys aren't a team. It has nothing to do with the coach. Nothing to do with the lines. It's just a bunch of random players thrown together in which everyone was hoping for the best.

And to be honest, I highly doubt it was just Renney [I'm not downplaying Renney's work at all] that kept the team calm for his tenure. I think it had more to due with Jagr. Once Jagr wasn't on this team... well, we know what happened then [Renney fired that season, now this season].
