I congratulate John on giving the team a blue collar work ethic and personality. Perhaps he got too far out of balance but Torts' did good work here. He will be back coaching very soon.

And for the future, my guess is that Jeff Gorton is driving the bus on a replacement, not Sather. This is becoming his team and I do not believe he will be looking at the same old news (Ruff, Vignault etc.) as a coach. My choice is former Ranger Dallas Eakins, currently coach of the Toronto Marlies of the AHL and widely considered to be the best coach in the AHL
I hope they go for a younger coach. Time to bring in some new blood.
