I am a Ranger fan. What is your point? Mine is that Renney has done a far better job of assessing talent than we've given him credit for. Balej.........a bust,Garth Murray.....fringe NHLer,................Lundmark...., Fed Fed..... all shipped off after Renney got a look at them,need I say more. He put alot of faith in Hossa, and most of us questioned it. He obviously saw something. As to your 9 times out of 10 theory, I beg to differ, Renney hasn't been wrong yet as far as I can tell, with one exception, Umberger, and that was a character issue, so I can't even fault him for that.
