When the losing started under Arniel, he had no answers and was at a loss on how to right the ship. bridges were burned with players for reasons as a fan I don't know. The concerning thing is how quickly he lost the room after a moderately successful first season. For a team full of lows in their history, they were at their lowest under him. It was under his watch that Rick Nash decided he wanted out of town.

While I hope he certainly learned something from the experience, the rangers certainly have a few players in the room already who already have certain beliefs about him in one way or another. If he truly has changed and those players had a negative experience with him before, they had better rebuild those bridges quickly or there could be big issues with team chemistry.
Yikes. That doesn't sound good at all.
