Keenan was a jerk too but he was lucky enough to have the likes of Messier, Graves and Leech on his team. In my view, Torts was "our" jerk. He could have won here. Now we are back in uncharted water. Oh well.....
Jerk or no jerk, he was a good coach.

Sather, as he is want to do and as has been well documented here, makes knee jerk reactions as well as changes for the sake of making changes. If you are going to make a change, shouldn't you upgrade? There is NOTHING that shows that AV was an upgrade to Torts.

And now the Rangers are paying the price.
