We should fire Torts for a Torts clone to take over...
So in Hartford they teach the players how the NYR want them to play but then after they learn the NYR change their philosophy so that these players no longer fit into the scheme. It's so genius, why didn't I think of that!?
Why are the Devils so successful? They keep their organizational philosophy consistent. When they attempted to alter it in the beginning of the year -- complete and utter disaster. I see no reason why this same scenario does not apply to the Rangers.
The dismissal of a coach who embodies the franchise's direction would be a glaring mistake to make at this point. Schoenfeld, Torts, Sully, Sather all seem to be working from the same playbook marking the first time in as long as I've been a fan that I've seen the organization actually behave like a rational, self-sustaining organization.
No surprise that it took the imposition of a salary cap to achieve this.
