Maybe Torts Wasn't the Problem

I like Torts. I think hes one of the great coaches of today. I just believe the off-season and shortened season messed with the Rangers. A LOT of changes were made during the offseason. We got rid of key players for special teams and important minutes. We never replaced them correctly.
We thought, OH! Prust is a grinder and a fighter. Lets replace him with Asham. Two differ players. Prust had much more of a bite, not to mention that he was also very much in tune with Torts system and style and had chemistry with the team.
We put in Pyatt for Fedetenko or Dubinsky you can say. Pyatt had no emotion all season. He was a big lump chugging along. I hope hes gone. Should have been traded.
I am glad for the new trade that brought in Moore and Brassard but we need new role players. The thing now is that we will have a new coach, so idk who to get really.
I just dont see how its Torts fault in the Boston series. The team did look emotionless many times but as hard as I was on the Rangers, I realized Boston did not look much better. They just were a better team. Hence why they are in the finals and took Chicago to 3OTs.
I mean, if there were issues in the locker room wouldnt we have missed the playoffs? Wouldnt we have lost in the first round rather than come back from a bad deficit and win it in 7.
I think players were banged up as any hockey team is, unlucky... Boston was better. And the team we had just wasnt the same guys. Something that is on the hands of the GM.
Hes a terrible GM in the off-season and FA. He should be fired. I stuck up for him for his draft picks, for his days in EDM, for his amazing trades... but in the end. How many chances does one guy get? He must have a clause, or Dolan must really like him (Sather has increased the NYR revenue and profit since he took over).
I liked Torts. I think we could have won with him if we kept along the same path. Not just trade away key guys from a superstar... not just replace our key role gusy with guys who play "similar"...
We played bad this year for the most part
