It'll be good for a month or so until they turn on him.

Team being lazy, not giving full effort.

Torts will fix that fast. Like many disciplinarian coaches, I wonder about his shelf life, but I think this should turn them around this year and grab a playoff spot.

The making of a myth:

• Summer 2008 - Torts must be the most hated coach in the NHL, both by players and fans, he gets fired and everybody, from Florida to Vancouver, is happy about it. Torts sign with TSN he will be a commentator for the upcoming season.

•Autumn 2008 - The personality and the views of Torts are realy liked by both the fans and the media, we get to know his wonderful personnality. Melrose (sorry) takes over Torts job, in a mess some called the wrost coach job ever done. Tampa's fans and observers alike are missing Torts, kind of like moujiks missing the Tsar in 1917. Everybody's loving Torts.

•Winter 2009 - Torts is named headcoach in New-York, everybody's happy till further notice.

This interest me for another reason too.

With Montreal battling with the Rangers for the playoffs, one team makes a coaching change and one doesn't. Who makes the playoffs and who doesn't. Both teams really underachieving. If Montreal misses and Rangers make it, you could look back to this day.

I don't think this is a myth. Fact was, Torts is a disciplinarian and they only have a short shelf life. When he got fired in Tampa, he was, if I am not mistaken, the second longest serving coach. Clearly he'd been there too long.

That doesn't make him a bad coach.

One, it's not an either or.

Two, one team benched a star player for two games and one didn't.

You could say this about anything.

actually i like it . its exciting to be fighting with 5 other teams all within 2 or 3 point of each other. Its like living on the edge and it keeps it exciting going down the stretch run.

A refocused Kovalev and having Alex Tanguay back is probably more of an effect than them hiring Torts. IMHO

I like him, i just saw how things turned around fast and wanted to point it out.

But the facts are : He can be a real team killer, we all know how he treated the newcomers and how he overused Vinny and Marty, look at the 2007 playoffs.

One. I never said it was either or. I said, "Who makes the playoffs and who doesn't" which means both could make it, neither could, or one or the either could. Maybe i wasn't clear enough.

Two, Kovy is not a star and a coaching change is slightly bigger than having a good player sat.

renney has almost identical record to carbonneau this year. habs and rangers each have 69 points with habs having game in hand.

carbonneau has a superior roster to what renney had. renney last 3 seasons had them in playoffs and twice to eastern semis. another vastly overated gm in new york who basically has done nothing there since arriving JUST LIKE Gainey here.

but difference here is carbo is gainey's friend, renny was not sather's friend.

Thanks for your expertise, care to show me to your proof of that random assertion?

And if you don't think Kovy is a star, feel free to look at last season. He clearly is, whether or not you like him or he's been playing like it lately, the guy is a star player. It's one thing to have a hate on for a guy, it's another to deny reality.

True enough, but take a peek at the Rangers record. The only way it gets worse is if they lose EVERY game

...and while he ran them into the ground in 2007, he also ran them into a Cup. So who knows.

Sather inherited a bubble playoff team and made them a bubble playoff team.

Gainey inherited a bubble playoff team, that usually missed, and made them into the top seeded East team last year... in a season most pundits had them out of the playoffs.

Ho yeah that cup... I'm happy to see him in New-York it'll be a perfect fit, too bad for the Habs.

They asked him on The Quiz a week ago whether he'd want Avery on his team... I am sure of it. I cannot remember what he said though... I think the answer was "NO!!"

Anyone remember for sure?

renny won way more playoff games. as for last year:

1-penguins tanked last game
2- habs 1st place in east a complete aberration as they beat boston and philly 12 to zero during the season as both those teams were decimated by injuries the days they met. had habs just gone 6-6 against those 2 teams - they would have MISSED the playoffs OUTRIGHT!
3-And it was proved a complete aberration as in the final 8 games the habs played in last year's playoffs they were completely outclassed and outcoached by both those teams and went 5 and 7 and OUT!

1 -- So?

2 -- Right, the old "if they hadn't won games they won, they wouldn't have finished first argument." You do realize that's completely insane right? They won them, it doesn't matter against who and in what order.

3 -- Few teams get over the hump into the top tier and then go right into the Cup the first year.


Neither Gainey nor Carbo are perfect, in fact, I tend to think Carbo should be on his last legs, but your arguments against them need some work.
