If oyu can see past his poor fashion sense, then you are in for a pleasant surprise.

People forget, that Tom Renney once owned/ran a men's clothing shop. Like it not, but Tom Renney does have "style", no matter if you like it or not.

Now John Tortorella on the other hand, I think he has the same tie and suit collection from when he entered the league. It would be one thing if the clothes were "lucky," but his record the last few seasons as a head coach don't seem to mimic said luck. Maybe Mark Messier can get him some new clothes (as there are many stories of Mark getting new rookies and acquisitions short-term clothing).

He's a good Western Canadian guy. Not afraid of physicality.

EDIT: As the regulars here will tell you, I also think Renney is a terrific coach. I think you guys will be pleased with him.
This pretty much sums it up.

Renney is a good coach, and you guys definitely picked up the right one. He provides a pretty calm environment, but he does have a sharp side and can put out decent amounts of discipline. Definitely isn't afraid to send out the heavyweights, as you asked. One thing that's especially fitting for you guys, is that Renney is very, very good with the younger players. He'll help Edmonton develop their core. However, from my understanding, you have a pretty flashy set of offensive players of there, even on the backend. Not sure Renney is the best coach for that. I can't say for sure, because the Rangers have been deprived of that kind of talent for years, but he's always played a very conservative and defensive style here.

I don't follow Edmonton, so I don't know what style he's been coaching, but he's always played conservative here.

Hasn't been a very conservative pre-season, at least.

Seems like there's a forward at center every time the defense gets the puck in Edmonton's zone.

So he's the complete opposite of MacT, who would bench certain players for every little mistake. I still think he ruined Robert Nilsson.

Renney was never a defense-focused coach until he came here. Not in junior hockey, not at the international level, not in Vancouver.

He'll work with whatever you have on your roster.

Yep and the exact opposite of Tortorella who just tries imposing the system that he got lucky with in TB despite the fact that we have no Lecavalier, St. Louis, Richard, etc.

If Edmonton has a tough guy with a long fuse, Renney can easily work with him to be a 10-15 min/game guy like he did with Orr.
