During Ranger's tenure in NY so far, I've grown from disliking the Rangers to liking them. (not a real "fan" by any means, my team is Buffalo, so a bit of neutral input...)
Renney's done an excellent job.
Like it or not, for the last 2 years this team has been competeing despite being low on talent, skill and players in their prime.
He's introduced Lundqvist, Tyutin, Prucha, Ortmeyer and Hollweg as full-time NHLers. (if you think a team should be producing more than 5 players in two seasons, you've got a problem).
He's also given Girardi a spot and was patient with Hodda when he needed to be.
He's used some guys over their heads and they've responded (probably best example is Rozsival).
Shanahan or no Shanahan, injuries or no injuires, last season's Ranger's team was BETTER. A lot of people understimated what Rucinsky, Sykora, Nieminen and Rucchin did. You also had a very good season from Kaspar compared to an awful one this season.
And Jagr wasn't coming off a bad shoulder injury.
Unless there are some issues with the managment or the players, I don't see any reason Renney shouldn't be back.
