Went unsure, because in true Torts fashion we are only 44 games in.

I was a big Torts detractor when he came here, I wanted Lavs for this team. This season it looks like Torts is outcoaching Lavs for sure, but I'd like to see some NY playoff success before we give him the all-time greatest coach in NY history banner.

Some of the love he gets is unfounded, while some of the hate he gets is also unfounded. I still have a few problems with Torts including his ego towards the media, though that has been more rare this season. His preached accountability at some points seems to fall by the wayside when the microscope is put on him.

He may prove to be a good fit for this team right now, but there is limited success in his Rangers history, and we're only 44 games in here. While most of the reason that the Rangers are at the top is in goal. So maybe this should be a Benny Allaire poll instead?

Let's see what the next 38, and hopefully more, games tells us about Torts as a coach for this franchise.
