couple thoughts on AV:

I doubt that he was hired with the expectation that this team would be successful right away. Maybe it was not expected to be THIS bad, but as I've said before, this is a terrible roster, just terrible. No coach could win with this roster.

I would expect that AV presented a plan to achieve success over a period of one or two or three years. The 1st part of this season would be dedicated to getting to know the roster and making personnel decisions. As the season goes on, I expect the Rangers to be active in trading undesirables and acquiring players that better fit the system and team identity.

As time goes goes by, and the coach has acquired the players he wants, the bar will be raised. I would be completely shocked if he got the boot this year.....it would take a worse than last place finish.

I am excited at the prospect of a new coach and system AND regular playing time for some young blood in the form of young guys from Hartford, high draft picks, and skilled players from trades.

Just need to ride out this low point.
