I'm guessing you stood and cheered when Renney put Nylander on the ice with 1 min to go in game 5 vs the Sabres last yr? The guy can't manage a game at all. He has been great off the ice dealing with a very difficult locker room. However, Renney is the worst BENCH coach in league... better?

personally, I thought Rozsival and Lundqvist were our 2 best players last year.

Nylander is never the best player in anything spinning like a top in the neutral zone and all, but I was referring to having the worst face off guy on the team and a severe defensive liability on the ice with a little over a minute to go. We ice the puck, Nylander isnt allowed off and our season ended. We had full control of that series and Rennys mental lapse cost us EVERYTHING...

I really don't think that people scoffed at the Rangers roster at all. It is pretty hard to scoff at players like Gomez, Drury, Jagr, Shanahan et al when it comes to proven performers.
And one of the strongest components of the Rangers' organization is their scouting, in my opinion. Notice I did not say player development, cause I don't think they have focussed on player development until they had to acknowledge that the old way of playing old players exclusively was not working. Then, when Renney got some of them, he took way too long to figure out what do with them. And while I am at it, it is so nice to have Jagr peaking for the playoffs. Thanks for putting everyone through a big guessing game about you Jags, when you decided you needed to rest or coast during a mid-season game when we could have really benefitted from the two points that your total focus may have provided. I saw that over and over again, and I hold Renney responsible for it too.

I'm all for living in the present tense and enjoying what is happening, but Renney has squandered some of what was given to him.

HE CUT NIGAL DAWES AFTER HE WAS THE BEST PLAYER IN CAMP!!! In the pre-season Dawes-Gomez-Shanny looked incredible. Here were are 82 games later and Renney still doesn't get it...

For the record...

I don't mind Renney....Sure he pisses me off but thats only becuase as you guys know I love to blame people for when things are going wrong.

I don't mind the guy, hes a decent coach...but I do think he gets a little more praise around here then he deserves since I believe individual players deserve it more when they are on fire (Jagr, Lundqvist, Gomez etc). When the entire team is playing good hockey, I give credit to Renney, as I said, most of the 2nd half of the season.

Well, the first post was all about mid-season, and by mid-season I was pretty much nervous about Tom's leadership, and giving him a C. He's doing better now. I think he actually might read some of these blogs, because he sure didn't show many signs of treating the new guys like they deserved at mid-season, but he got way more sensible later on. Seriously, I think he got some street sense.

3 straight seasons of playoffs. How sweet it is.
love it.

renney certainly has frustrated me and still does but he continues to do a lot of good and the support he gets is well deserved.

what i'm liking most about renney is he's not scared to change.. he got over hossa, he's giving youngsters excellent chances. i'm happy with him.

We don't even need an offensive minded coach. A defensive coach who actually can manage his forwards effectively (ala Pat Burns) would be great.

Yes, I hate being in first place. The coach must go.

I'm getting off here. Keep your head up, Chicken Little.

Only since you asked me a direct question:

1. They have a top-3 goalie.
2. They have dominant penalty kill.
3. Every player on the roster plays a responsible, two-way game.
4. They've shown an intense desire to win. This team never quits.
5. THEY'RE IN FIRST PLACE!!! (this should really count for two)

My god people, cheer up a little. Not every team can be the Red Wings.

1. That's not the TEAM. That's a single player.
2. Agreed
3. Agreed to an extent
4. They certainly didn't show anything to win. But what's desire if the coach can't get ANY sort of scoring out of it?
5. While true, it's based off only the play of our goalie and a defensive system and we haven't seen what a true losing streak will do to this team yet.

this is a lottery team without Henrik, period.

other teams can survive short periods of time w/o their best player. the pens played well w/o crosby last season. this team would fall apart w/o henrik. he is the only reason we have more than 4 or 5 wins this season. w/o him, we're talking about how awesome tavares would look in ranger blue.

Tom Renney is the most overrated coach in this league bar none. he gets so little out of so much its not even funny. Sather bring in players to play an up tempo offensive style a-la Buffalo from 2 years ago, we play NJD hockey. He has puck control players capable of wearing down teams 2 years ago, he has them playing NJD style hockey.

Tom Renney would be the perfect coach for a team like the Atlanta Thrashers or another ultra low payroll team. A team that wants to be competitive by playing that style of hockey, but who will never do anything but make the first round of the playoffs, 2nd max, and then be promptly slaughtered by the better teams in the league.

for a team with a perennially high payroll, he gets remarkably little out of his players. he is the ultimate square peg-round hole coach.

The main reason I want Renney gone is because, in my eyes, he's brought us as far as he can. He was a great transitional and motivational coach for a young, inexperienced team that didn't have a lot of talent.

We have moved past that. We need a next level coach, which he has simply not shown himself to be.

He's the perfect coach for teams that suck. For teams that actually have talent, he is worthless. Honestly, he would be a great coach for the New Jersey Devils, a team with very little talent, but built to play Renney hockey.

Damn, what a wet dream it would be to swap coaches with the Devils. Win-Win imho. Rangers get the kind of coach they need (imho) and the Devils get the kind of coach they need.

He's better served being an assistant coach.

He's a good developer of talent.... and bad at managing aspects of the game itself
