We don't really know what the true quality of talent the Rangers have, because it was all dumbed down by the idiotic Tortorella system. Heck.......these teams actually passed the puck IN THE MIDDLE OF THEIR DEFENSIVE ZONE! Imagine that!
Was Renney the problem before Torts?
The Rangers finished somewhere between the 5th and 8th best team in the league.
If the Rangers behaved like how you think was the obvious way to go, where do you think they would have finished this year?
