Does it matter? Yeah. A team that's rebuilding are more likely to take a flyer on a rookie coach than a time that thinks it has a chance to win the Cup.

You may think that the Rangers aren't position to make a run — I'm not sure they are either — but management seems to think they are

I'm not suggesting that teams don't hire rookie coaches (obviously all coaches are rookies at some point). I am suggesting that most of the time, teams that think they're primed for a Cup run don't hire rookie coaches — for that matter, how many teams that feel they have a shot at the Cup actually change coaches? I know it happens, Bylsma, for example, but it's the exception, not the rule.

This is all moot as I don't think Torts' job is in jeopardy.
