He took a Lightning team that had previously struggled and turned them into division winners, and stanley cup champions.
No he hasn't done anything with the Rangers yet. But, give him time - he has already helped in the development of so many of our kids. He teaches them to play the game right, and if you don't you won't be playing.
Yep, It took him about 4 years to build a team and get Tampa to the Cup. Can't take a bad team with little talent and turn them into champions overnight.
Anyone who thought Torts could magically make the Rangers into contenders with the roster he inherited was just delusional.
Not counting the half season where he took over for Renney because that was not his team,we're at the start of year 3. Give him some time.
