Last year Tom Renney was slaughtered and ultimately fired. Look at the list of things he was killed for.
1) Boring system "stifling" offensive ability
2) Too many men penalties
3) Bad power play
4) Constantly changing line combinations
5) Team does not respond to him
How many of these things have changed? The power play? Not really. When you add Gaborik its gonna make the power play better.
They still take too many men penalties. The system Tortorella tried to implement was a disaster. He changes line combos like Sean Avery changes outfits. The team doesn't seem to respond to his antics.
So we fired Tom Renney because these reasons, nothing changes so now because everyone likes the guy for some reason, its the players that are solely at fault.
