The posts regarding sully in this thread are sickening. I guess we forget who coaches the defense and how far the youth has come this year. A defense that was missing staal for half the season. You people are ridiculous
No one here thinks Sullivan should get any credit for the growth of players like Girardi, McDonagh, Del Zotto and Stralman this year? Seriously? I know our PP is awful looking, but it's come up pretty big at times here in the playoffs, and the defense can't really be argued with.
LOL @ all of you thinking this a good thing. TORTS runs the PP and offense, Sulli runs the PK and d. Yes Sullivan draws up plays in game during time outs, but hes not the one coaching it during practice. Torts is very adiment about it being the HC job to run the PP.
And believe it or not, we have the best power play out of all the teams left int he POs.........
This thread might be more embarassing then the Gaborik thread.
Guy runs the defense, one of the, if not the best defense in the league and people are excited to see him leave?
Did you just become Rangers fans yesterday? Our PP has sucked for 7 years now. And there have been different coaches throughout that. Torts is a great coach, but he doesnt get a free pass with this PP.
Whether or not Sullivan has been running the power play is irrelevant to me. We can always bring in someone else to take that over. Sullivan is a huge reason for our defensive success. We can hardly hope to bring in someone just as good.
