Yet the "smart" people here were sure that Renney was holding the team back offensively and have now moved their blame towards Torts.

The problem right now is the talent. Torts AND Renney are both good coaches. Truly believe that. Torts won a cup, (something very difficult for bad coaches to accomplish) and Renney took the team to the playoffs each year. You can just tell on the ice as well. There was a specific feeling when we had the guys like Trots. Just a different world on the ice in terms of effort and sticking with the system. That hasn't been there since Renney and Torts.
Actually, I would respect that much more. But there are several people who crucified Renney and are now giving Torts a free pass because of the shoddy personnel. Its the very definition of hypocritical...especially considering this years team possesses an all-world goal scorer.
