This isn't comparable to a players contract
But do they always get fired a couple of months after signing an extension? Coaches do get fired with years left on their contract, true. However, at the press conference, Sather made it sound like Torts system and style of play does not fit in today's NHL. Had he just arrived at that conclusion? If he believed that, why did he sign him to an extension? Doesn't that signal a belief in the coach and his system? The Rangers were not world beaters this year, struggling through much of it only to come on late to make the playoffs. Why not see how the season plays out and whether he thinks Torts is the right man for the job and for this latest group of players that he assembled?
I, again, think it signals more that Sather has no long-term plan and/or is blowing steam up our butts. As chosen pointed out, Sather is the biggest reason we find ourselves with another new coach, new system and new plan.
