And this comes right on the heels of waiving locker room favorite Marty Biron after he was given only one start, and that one start coming when the team was still in disarray and against one of the best teams in the NHL.
It's funny that people on these boards are telling the fans not to panic, because AV has full on hit the panic button himself.
Interesting spin. I think it's probably more likely a sense of the players thinking "we were under a hardass before. We can take it easier cuz he's gone." AV will have none of that. And by the way, the Rangers never quit on Tortorella. This is becoming one of the most annoying myths on these boards.
AV hasn't hit the panic button. The lines are relatively stable. The approach to the game hasn't changed. Where's the panic?
