The Rangers were one of the better even strength teams in the league the last two seasons. Had the coaching staff been able to formulate at least marginally effective tactics on the power play this team could have challenged the Kings in the finals last year and possibly the conference final again this season. The putrid power play skews things. This team is not devoid of skill. While they have holes, they aren't crap. A coach who knows how to adapt and knows how to reach individual players should be able to get more from.this club.

Eakins and Boucher were my picks but with Eakins gone and Boucher not in the mix, Stevens all the way.

No more collapsing in our own end. No more giving away possession willingly. Attack. Flow. Creativity. Get rid of the slow elephants (Pyatt and Clowe) and have a team that can skate. Build the identity on relentless pressure and speed.
