And this is our problem... Renney is to Jagr what Roger Nielson was to Messier. Players know that if management has to pick between Renney and Jagr, The #68 jersey is still going to be hanging in the lockerroom at MSG. So his credibility is shot. Which in itself may be enough to get him fired. The coach has to run the team, no matter how good the players are. Unfortunatley, #11 set a great precedent of the tail wagging the dog around here. Once the inmates are running the asylum, there's no going back. It just may be the year we have to blow it all up because we know we need Jagr to be happy in order to have it worth him being here. If Renney gets fired and they bring in a guy who lays the smackdown on everyone and regains control, there's a good chance Jagr's not going to be down with the plan. The alternative is to let Jagr have his way with whatever puppet we put in there, which as we can see, is not working.
