Scratching player is part of the coaching process. Forward's production is a result of coaching. You mistook process for result, which is quite typical.

As for Z not being signed, Flyers can afford let him go, they have so many good forwards that they let go even better Fs. Rangers are different story. Since we have never tanked we couldnt get like Flyers top forward talent from draft. Thus, we must have coach who could elevate "second best" to the level that would make a good use of those guys Sather picks up here and there. Renney was doing it, Torts can't and he doesn't want either.
