Jim Schoenfeld Appreciation Thread....

He's doing a great job down there! Took a very young Pack team that started off 2-6-2 on the season and are now 39-23-3....

Dubinksy, Callahan, Girardi... we call these guys up and they don't look out of place playing on the team... That's how you know Schoeny is doing his job....

Not to mention we borrowed 4 of his better players and he's still getting the job done again top teams in the AHL, with the Pack knocking off the Bruins tonight....



The youth are in good hands...

well said. he also always did well with those cap teams he coached. they never had much talent but always overachieved and played hard.

i don't think you'll find anyone here who'll knock schoenfeld. he's been upfront and seems to genuinely like being a part of the rangers. and on top of that he has done a good job of development. what's not to like?

He is going to get snatched away from our organization before we can really use him to his full potential.

great for this organization, absolutely NO complaints whatsoever about him. I also like the fact that he doesnt take any crap from his players, and has accountabilty down cold. You dont play well, you dont play. Thats how it should be.

At this stage in his career I don't know what his interest really is. He could very well be perfectly happy with what he is doing. Don't discount the fact that somewhere down the road he could become the coach of the NYRs. He would have schooled all these kids, they know what he demands and what he will not tolerate. renney's strength I think is in player selection. I could see Renney going back to Director of Player Personnel or AGM when Sather retires or gives up the GM title. Remember, Sather holds down 2 titles.

Was Schoenfeld ever offered the Rangers' head coaching position?

Actually, I've seen posters on other boards really rip Schoenfield and demand his ouster,especially earlier in the season. Basically, it was a combination of...

1) Play vets over kids: Petruzalek for Isbister (his trade as AHL GM), Playing Vali over Montoya, sat kids to play Purinton, Richter, Kasparaitus on blueline etc.

2) He's another McGill: He's a defense-first drill-sergeant type of coach who can win gives, but will stifle the keds' offensive development.

That said, I'm pretty sure that Schoenie's said he views himself as more of an interim coach and would rather be GM.

Yes, immediately following the dismal of Brian Trottier, Sather wanted Jim to coach the team. But not to sellout Brian, Schoenfeld did not want to take over coaching duties from Trottier.

Well said...good to have Jim in the organization. One of the toughest guys to play against and a great coach. Certainly wouldn't mind him up with the big club

Schoeny's done a great job...

he took a young team that struggled to get wins early, with 'vets' either struggling or in New York, and turned them into a real force and a feeder for the big club, something we haven't seen since...I honestly cannot remember when. I actually think it's time for him to graduate with his kids...

frozen...

i just figured that Schoenfeld didn't want to step into a really bad situation (NY Rangers). Who would?

Or he didn't want to jump in a sinking ship.

I'm pretty sure he's on record saying he doesn't really want to coach and prefers the GM role. Word was they were grooming Samuelsson for the coaching position in Hartford before he jumped ship to coach with Gretzky.
