I'm surprised that the Rangers have kept Sullivan on the books for now, but I don't think he'll stay. Actually, it's pretty classy of the organisation not to let the whole coaching staff go at the same time (I'm assuming Torts would get a good payoff, but I don't know about Sully).
Perhaps they're looking to replace Gernander with him? Pure speculation, of course, but he had success in his one season coaching Providence.
Interesting factoid I came across just now, while looking for Sullivan's record as head coach of the Bruins: he was originally a Rangers draft pick, though he never played here.
The new head coach will bring in his own assistant(s), no? Sullivan will be allowed to officially look for another organization once the Rangers announce the new head coach. He could follow Tortorella wherever he lands.
I can't imagine that Torts lands another coaching job for this coming season. Back to TSN for him.
Oh, you must be uninformed and not up to date, they are now called the Wolfpack once again.

I don't think Sully moves. He seems to understand the defense role. Just sucks at anything beyond. New HC and maybe he brings his assistant with him that can work offense/pp help, I think Sully stays then.
Staal was having his best season to date when he got hurt, he barely played a month and a half.
Overall the defence was not the best they have been, but on an overall basis, Sully has done some great things with the guys we have on D
agreed... staal was good when he actually played. mcdonagh had a down year(albeit i don't think i'd call it a regression w/ the whole team playing that poorly). girardi had a horrible year (again, whole team played like **** and he's overrated to begin with)
