I call this good news. Who knows but that a competant coach to whom the players listen might actually get this team to play .500 hockey and ruin their draft status.

It's clear that the players don't fear Sather. Let him continue to drive the team to losses. The season's finished anyway, so why risk having a GOOD coach take the helm?

I don't think we'll catch up to Pittsburgh, but if we get to 26th overall in the standings, we have a small shot in the lottery for #1 overall, right?

well.....

one thing that needs to happen is the fans not showing up and not renewing their season tickets! sounds like it would be impossible for that to happen though with all the corporate sponsers. pipedream? maybe but thats what has to happen. also not showing up for the rest of games this season! we are treated like the ******* child of msg! the knicks got all their firings done and look at them now! he's moving the team in the right direction while the rangers continue to be a national joke! dolan could give a rats ass about the rangers, that much is obvious, otherwise he would have done something about this situation already. seven years is acceptable to this orginazation, even though they say its not, it is! we have a 43 year old center who plays 20 effin minutes a night! while lindros, nedved and holik get 16 to 17 a night! messier shouldn't be getting 12 minutes a night no less 20! we have a coach\gm who doesn't know how to coach a team, there is no accountabilty what so ever, you do something bad as a vet you don't miss a shift, if your under 25 and make a bad mistake your benched! the only one benched this year is hlavac and lundmark. hlavac should've been jetisoned from the team in november! yet he still here! i could go on all night but that would be a waste of my time and yours for reading it. i'am done with this team, i'll still post on them but i won't go out of my way to watch them and i'm not buying any more tickets for this team, i have better thigs to do with my money!

C'mon sickboy35, don't underestimate us.

We are an international joke.

Who knows? Maybe they're laughing at us on Venus.

i'm not quite sure how the lottery works.
but young phenoms would do the league much better in new york over pittsburgh, which may not even play another season.

A team can move up a maximum of two slots by winning the lottery. Thus in order to have a chance at the #1 a team must finish in the bottom three.

I think that is only two spots below.
