If you need a coach to motivate you at this time of the year, then something is seriously wrong.
I'm not saying Renney is a brilliant coach, but this is far from the first time we were sitting in a spot like 12th in February and this is practically the first time (at least in a very long time) the team is making a real run instead of just staying on the bubble for the rest of the season. To me... yes, it's desperation, but teams don't just start playing with a sense of desperation without someone instilling that sense in them. That's where I think the coaching staff, led by Renney, has done a good job.
