I certainly want to give credit to Renney and his staff for a commendable job in the last half of the season. He was able to form a successful defense to help Lundqvist. Still, I feel there are better coaches out there than Renney, who I would prefer to see as an assistant coach. Girardi, Callahan and other young players who have been playing really good only got their chance because Renney was forced to let them play because of injuries and Ozolinsh & Kaspar were waived way too late. I can understand why he refused to give up on Kaspar though.

Most credit I give to Sather though for acquiring Avery (a big reason why we are in the playoffs) and Bourret, both of them absolute steals. I also like the Ward - Mara trade.

The big question I ask myself is: Would another coach have done better with this squad?
