Little shocked. I expected Sather to require Torts t hire an offensive coach. Maybe that's what happened and Torts refused, who knows.
I liked what Torts provided in terms of structure and accountability, but his system was a loser.
Feels like a big dark cloud was lifted.
Hope Mike Haviland gets an interview. Won championships as a HC at numerous minor league levels, won a cup with Chicago as an AC. Friend of mine from Leonardo. No more retreads, give someone younger a shot.
Good thing she pulled those out of her ass just like all of us pulling candidates out of ours.
Its just based on who is available. I just dont want it to be Schoenfeld, Ruff, or Messier. Thats the triumvirate of predictable, lazy choices. I'd really love for Gorton to take the reigns on this and higher a young, up and coming, hungry coach -- with a track record that would benefit this type of roster.
For 1st rounders, Ill buy that, although several other teams have done it.
It still isnt a legitimate excuse as to why this team cant draft and develop 3rd/4th line depth players. Its really hurting this team.
Yea, Im not sure why they have such trouble finding 4th liners even. Id have to look more closely, but I would venture a guess that the rangers mid/late round picks tend to be smaller and more skill oriented guys.
Where a lot of teams will try to find the 6'2 220 pound guys who smash.
