I just remember hearing Pens fans were upset with Bylsma early on in the season and wanted him fired. I know USAH is high on Bylsma, but they're also oddly high on Scott Gordon (I kid). My reasoning for Torts is exactly what Cory Trevor was saying. The Rangers basically have two roster locks at this point. He knows Callahan (possible team captain) and McDonagh well and he was an assistant in 2010 so he knows all of those players - and we need every little advantage can get if we want gold in Sochi.
