Not to say that getting rid of Torts wasn't the right thing to do but I definitely agree with SBOB that the search for a new coach was a bunch of crap. Messier and AV got interviews and that was it. Messier shouldn't even have gotten an interview. There was no real search done at all. It's almost like when we hired Trottier because he was willing to write a book and find a publisher just to get the job. This goes right back to Sather.

These last two games remind me as well of those weeks after the Rangers purged half their team the year before the lockout. All of a sudden we have Josef Balej and Josh Green as top 6 wingers. It's bad enough to get clobbered 9-2 and show so little but then turn around and being down 6-0 after two periods the very next game.

If this continues to play out we won't have to worry much about who we'll be re-signing next year--we'll be dumping them at the trade deadline for draft picks and hopefully in that case Sather doesn't survive this time.
