He's far from an average coach.

I think he was involved with a few charity organizations. It's got to be hard to have to leave those relationships behind.

Agreed.

I know alot of former players/personnel that still come back to NYC to work for charities. Good people.

Renney helped set up the scouting system we have in place now ... the system that found MDZ and the rest ....our scouting and player dev. was the joke of the lg before Renney and Sather fixed it.... now it is one of the best.

I still blame Isbister for losing that series.

Nothing like Isbister/Jason Ward being a healthy scratch or being on Jagr's line.

Renney has a clause in his contract which puts him in line to succeed Quinn.

Quote:
Renney's contract with the Oilers might include a clause that says he takes over as head man should Pat Quinn not want to continue coaching past his three-year contract.

The clause exists.

"I had to defend my ability to coach. I think he'd have been more disappointed if I said, 'OK, I'll see you.' I think you all know Glen well enough to know he likes a pretty good scrap. Not that I was in there throwing them with him, but I wanted him to know I was sure I could carry on.

"I told Glen that I thought I was more of the solution than the problem, but I respected his decision. I'm a big boy. We have a really good relationship. I think he thinks highly of me and I do of him."

I don't know I live in edmonton and I consider myself pretty well travelled. I've been to Oslo, Stockholm, Vancouver and Tehran and they are all beautiful places and are better places to live than Edmonton in terms of "things to do" but not by as much as you say. Theres a lot of stuff to do in edmonton as well.

Out of curiosity though have you ever been to edmonton? Because if you haven't then why ask that question?

This man (and Jagr, and Lundqvist) pulled the Rangers from 8 years of embarrassment, and having watched pretty much every game during those 8 years, I am forever grateful for his role in turning the franchise around.

Godspeed in Edmonton Mr. Renney.

I hope they don't forget. If so people sure do have short memories.

I really like Renney and was kind of sad to see things unfold like they did, but it just wasn't working anymore. The man led us to 3 straight POs after not reaching them for 7-8? seasons. I'll never forget Tom.

I went to the Islander/Oil game on Monday and got to say hello to Tom. He looks good and seemed happy to see my sorry old face smiling at him by the glass. While I miss him and wish he had gotten a chance to finish last season, I'm glad for Tom that he is back home in Alberta, close to his parents, wife and girls.

It was just too bad the Oil are so decimated by injury. Monday they were missing Horcoff, Staios, Comrie and Souray. Strudwick looked good and played 18 minutes and was even in the three goal loss. When healthy, they are better team then they showed in their last two games. Pat was running the lines amd Tom the D. What else?

Tom landed on his feet. He's doing just fine.
