Betts was Renney's boy. Renney more so than Tortorella showed unwaivering loyalty to certain players and wouldn't give others a sniff. We probably would have beaten Washington in the playoffs that year if we had signed Nedved as an extra forward. He would have come in handy when Avery and Antropov were the only forwards that showed up for game 7.
That's an interesting take on it.

Still, we have a lot of hard competition for a few places and I doubt everyone who seems like they deserve a spot will get one, regardless of who's the current coach.
