I have to say that aside from that he did in the early years in Edmonton, when he actually had to manage a roster that didn't include a boatload of HOF'ers he's been less than ordinary.
While in Edmonton. he complained that if he had the Rangers budget he would never lose a game. I assume he never thought he'd ever get the chance because when it happened, he spit the bit.
His signings have been without direction,
his record for coaching choices has been atrocious (including Renney)
his drafting record over the last 7 years has left us with 1 gem in Staal, and a few maybe's in Dubinsky and Sanguenettitttittii ahhh whatever.
His inability to get this team the 2nd line center it so desperately needs is still a pock on his house.
His vision of a finesse oriented team is coming back to bite him in the rearend.
And to be honest, without Jagr and the other 2 guys having career years last year, this team is not in the PO's. If both Nylander and Straka has normal typical seasons, instead of Bob Sanguinetti we'd have, oh who am I kidding, we could have had the 4th overall pick and still taken Bob Sanguinetti.
I'm done ranting
