I hear my man Kasparaitis got on Jim Dolan's jet this morning and was bound for Pittsburgh.

He called Jags yesterday and said "Don't Worry Jags, I'ma coming!"
KASPAR, a true Rangers legend.

I'll never understand why everyone thinks putting Avery back with Dubi and Jagr is the magic move that will make everything else work.

Go back and look at the devils series. We had scoring from all 3 lines. The lines worked just fine the way Renney had them.

Jagr, Straka and Dubi were put together because of injuries. They worked well enough together that it wasn't necessary to put Avery back on the 1st line when the injured players came back. Disagree all you want, but Jagr, Straka and Dubi's numbers during the playoffs speak for themselves.

And one other thing that no one has mentioned, but may very well be true. Jagr probably prefers having Straka on the wing instead of Avery. Ever think of that? IMO, if that's what Jagr wants, that's what he gets. End of story.

There is one team eight miles west in Newark and another about 20 or so east in Uniondale. They could use the support, I'm sure they would love you.

Blaze you need to try harder to see that the glass is really half full.


Renny really has been not just a good coach, but imo a GREAT coach.

He's managed the various intense personalities in the room AND he is AWESOME with young players development.

I think he surely is learning some stuff as he goes. He is becoming a better x's and o's coach, he is becoming more confident coaching.

The future of this team is YOUNG developing players. Renny is a great coach for the future of this team.

He is well liked and he has really impressed me with how he handles the pressure of the NY media ( no small feat)

Has he made some goofs? Yes

But Hes a smart guy....he's surrounded by good hockey minds...

Has he lucked out with Jagr and Lundqvist?

WE ALL HAVE - the team the franchise the fanbase

If I have any impatience at all with this franchise it's TWO things ( and theyll be no surprise to the regulars)

1. Sather finding an Elite vet PP QB monster D man

Its a double edge sword. I want that guy , but I dont want to give up the Farm for the wrong guy. Sathers been careful and patient.....immediate gratification has not arrived


2. This summer PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD hire a PP specialist to actually coach these guys work SPECIFICALLY ON THE POWER PLAY STRATEGY.

Anybody whos anti-Renny is nuts, ESPECIALLY with the lonnnnnnnnng list of coaches we've had in recent history. Renney being here for 3-4 yrs now is a very good thing, we need stability from our coach. He's gotten us to the PO's 3 straight yrs, forward progress every year. Last season and this season this team had pretty huge lulls, got us out of them, made the PO's. Renney has the job for a long time in my book, no reason why he can't be here for 3-4 more.

ONe thing about the coaching staff thou, the PP and has been so brutal, I wouldn't mind seeing Pearn/Pelino go.

you guys are as clueless as renney... how do you go from a team that should have been a shoe in for the finals esp. when "ottawa" the only team i feared gets knocked out.. to basically being swept in the 2nd round by pitt....

we could have beatin a much better team in buffalo last year ....and then to make 2 incredible off season acquisitions in gomez and drury and we still can't get to the next level.... and someone says renney's a great coach ? wow

How many years in a row did we miss the playoffs?

How many coaches were given unbelievable skill and screwed it up before Renney got here and helped to change the culture of the franchise?

He's doing a fine job. We have run into an incredibly hot (and awesomely talented) Pittsburgh team. That's not Renney's fault. Sometimes you have to credit the opponent, and Pittsburgh has done well to get 3 wins. Just remember, they still need one. This series isn't over yet.

Bah, this thread is dumb so I'm not even gonna bother stating why I think Renney has been great for this team.

All I know is that I'd much rather have Renney behind the bench than Low, Trottier, and whoever the hell else we had through the revolving door of coaches that weren't able to get this team to do a damn thing.

Who brought the Czechs to the Rangers? Renney or the general manager, Glen Sather?

You liked the Avery-Dubinsky-Jagr combo, right? Who decided to put that line together? Who was ballsy enough to put our big free-agent signings on the second and third lines after seeing neither could work with Jagr?

But the fact that you actually wanted the Rangers to lose so Renney would get fired (which probably wouldn't have even happened) is just sad. Don't put your personal vandettas ahead of the team's success.

renney's a great coach ?

the first year jagr was awesome, he single handily brought us to the post season

the second year. terrrible for 3/4 of season.... then force of hand injuries brought the youth up and gettin avery got us to the playoffs

this year 3/4 of the season goes by we're horrible , a team with no
identity.. out of nowhere the line of avery dubi and jagr was put together and bang instant chemistry which gets us back to the playoffs for 3 rd straight year....

and you give all the credit to renney.. i'm sorry he doesn't deserve it !

Lol.

I'm not gonna argue with you. There's no point. I'll just have to be content knowing that every time I see Renney behind the bench over the next 3, 4, 5 years, that you are out there, somewhere, pissed off about it.

yes.. you do that, and while you're doing that for the next 3, 4 to 5 years of not winning the cup cause we have a coach that knows exactly what to say in front of a camera but hasn't a clue about being a strategist behind the bench..you'll eventually be pissed as well .. misery loves company.

No, if Hollweg hadn't taken a bad penalty, this series COULD be 2-2. Or it could still be 3-1 (we did let up another goal early in the 3rd). If the Rangers hadn't blown a 3 goal lead in game one, the series would be 2-2. If we had buried some of our chances in game 2, the series would be 2-2.

Lots of things have contributed to us being down 3-1. Blaming Renney because Hollweg took a bad penalty doesn't make much sense.

1. There are no "shoe ins" in hockey

2. Did you watch hockey this season at all? Sounds like your just puking up bs from some old box scores. Ottawa is the team EVERYONE feared the least since January. Rightfully so.

All he does is start posts that he knows people are going to react to and get pissed off. Youre all better off ignoring him unless you want to deal with him all off season.
