He plays a 7 million dollar player on the 4th line because that's where he deserves to play, while 95% of coaches would give him top 6 minutes to justify his contract.
In my book, that's accountability. And I LOVE seeing it in this organization. He's honest. You may not always agree with him, but he has his philosophy and sees it through. This is the coach I want to shape our team going forward.
Agree with you. Coaches being fired across the league and Renney never even considered as a candidate. That is the guy who wasted years here doing just the opposite of what you detailed above. Tort's is the right guy if Sather and Dolan can handle his blunt politically incorrect honesty.
