A lot of posters who had been saying "anyone but Torts" are about to get their wish next year. I think that the team can do much, much worse than they have the past two years, and if NYR makes a mistake on the new guy, we're all about to see just what thats like.
The 'pro' Renney people said the same exact thing.
It's possible that a new coach will get to the exact same levels as the two before him, then who will you blame and say 'i was right!' to ?
