We let go of Renney when we were in a playoff spot. No reason to give Tortorella the benefit of the doubt year after year.
The difference is, this team is still working hard. Sans Gaborik, they aren't floating around and giving up like they did towards the end of Renney's tenure.

They overachieved in the first half, and the lack of talent and skill is catching up with them. The growing pains from the kids are also hurting them, most notably on faceoffs.
