I don't know how much better Hank can get, he won the Vezina last season and may well again this season. Can't see how he gets better unless you compare to possible Hasek numbers with Buffalo.

I don't think anybody went to Sather. I think based on the exit interviews this move was made. I think this really went sour for Torts when he insulted Sam during an interview (J/K of course)

The Nash deal lost Torts his job IMO. If the Rangers somehow could have made the Nash deal the actual Gaborik deal in the off-season and kept Prust, ect the Rangers might still be in this thing. I think Nash is great but for Torts system, no way.
