This makes me feel kind of happy we didn't end up getting Nolan as our head coach.
In previous years, I was really hoping the Rangers would pick this guy up. He did great with Buffalo, and until the last two weeks, seemed to be doing the same with the Fishsticks.
However, from his reputation in Buffalo, and now this, it seems that he just is unable or unwilling to be composed in the public sphere. Obviously he is in a tough position-- but I just don't see what he is accomplishing by his antics w/ the Simon incident, and now with DiPietro.
That is one thing I appreciate about Renney. He seems to handle these types of controversies rather well. Ofcourse, he seemed to have a run-in with the refs earlier in the season; but this has all but died down.
I think these kinds of incidents will erode at Nolan's reputation and soon he will be jobless again. This is just a hunch, and not im not trying to start anything with Isles fans. I feel like his obstinance gets in the way of what can be a great coaching career.
