I think Renney has a lot more to deal with and has a lot more options than any other coach in the last several years.
I'm not suggesting that Renney is a good coach--just the "best" of a bunch of losers that Sather has hired here. And given that management is/was under the delusion that the team they constructed over the summer was one that could contend for a Stanley Cup, I think there is plenty of blame to go around. Sure Renney hasn't gotten the most out of the players he was given, but I would also argue that whomever decided that this group was going to make noise in the playoffs gets plenty of the blame too.
