First off I wanted to say it has been a lot more fun with the Rangers winning this season and less fighting on this board. I want to say after meeting Torts last season and having the conversation we had and learning a little about his passion and love for the game it was easier to like and root for him this season. Glen Sather is someone I have always liked and admired as a GM even when losing here in NYC other then being a ghost and not talking to the media he tried to improve the team at any cost. This season is truly a turning into something special right before our eyes and showing us Rangers fans that the best is yet to come. The group assembled here is a great combo of talent, youth, grit and most of all tough hockey players that seem to love being a team and with each other. From Fire Sather to great job Glen from Torts is a *****(my words ) to great job coach. Glad to see the youth develop right before our eyes.. To Capt Cally your a proud American boy wearing the RED WHITE AND BLUE. To Hank you are the KING .. and even guys like Stu Bikel keep up the good work kid and let's GO Rangers
I think it can be easy to think Torts is a bully with no tact or skills behind the bench, but after awhile you realize he's intense and hard on his players but it's because he wants them to play their hardest, play for each other, and play in a way that will bring them success. He wants his guys to succeed and he's not yelling at them because he dislikes them or thinks that blowing up at them is all there is to coaching, but he's challenging them to play better and play with a certain mentality that will win games
He's a good coach. No disrespect to Renney but I think ultimately that coaching change was a big benefit to the Rangers
this organization turned around the day they hired Torts. It took a little while to get it drilled in them, but accountability is so damn huge. i never got the feeling that players felt at all accountable when Renney was behind the bench.
Dagoon, I remember you on the mouths show ripping Hank any chance you got. You have to call in and give your state of the Rangers address (with a mea culpa on Hank). I miss hearing your thoughts and inside info like what you learned at the Rupp signing, etc.
