They were a team you'd probably be hoping to face in the playoffs.

With Torts as the coach they took a step further and became a team to avoid. They played a style that was tough to face, blocked shots, hit hard, went to the net. And even if I think letting Torts go was the right move, he deserves a lot of the credit for the heart the team showed especially in 2011/12.

You feel the team was returned to respectability with Renney at the helm, fine. I see your point.
Yeah, okay.
