imo if the rangers were going in-house to hire the coach they would have just named the coach...

going outside the organization is a survival thing with sather.

btw the "tortilini" guy used to use THAT story to mock sather...

I don't disagree with firing the coach. That said, thanks to Tom Renney for being a major part behind the Rangers regaining their dignity.
Fixed

This is step one of 4512474.
Why do people keep posting stuff like this? Do some of you honestly believe everyone expects to win the cup now or something?

We have been one of the worst teams in the NHL over the last two months. As much as Sather screwed up big time, Renney wasn't helping in the least bit in my opinion.

The team was better under Renney for a much longer period of time than it was worse.

I strongly hope this team continues to go nowhere and Dolan finally realizes Sather is steering this ship not only without a rudder, but while wearing a blindfold and binge drinking as well.

This move is nothing more than an attempt by Sather to cover his own ass.

I am hearing Tort as well. That can be a very good choice.

I dont love or hate Renney. I dont love him because of the line combos he chooses that are not always great, the benching that he does for hardworking players, and the overly defensive play but thats another story . However i dont hate him considering the fact he realized the crap of a team Sather gave him off the start this year and managed to accumulate wins by playing a Defensive system and trying to bring games into the shootout where Lundy is great. It is not something very fun to watch but that was what we needed with the type of players they have. I also dont hate him because he improved the team and is a good coach who understands how to work with high name players and guys who have histroy of problems, which is not easy. He is also good with his young players. Also if the PP is struggling i thought that belonged mostly to Pearn. I dont kno who is going to be added as coach but the fact of the matter is WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH SKILL! this requires a sit back defensive system to win games, so who do we blame Renney for the **** in front of him or Sather the man who ruined the team once again.

The thing that sucks is this team will still play like garbage down the stretch and maybe barely sneak into the playoffs.

Definitely not everyone, maybe not even the majority. But I don't think its unreasonable to say that some fans think that Renney was THE problem, not one of the problems.

As crazy as it might seem, I had a thought last night that Sather had kept Renney through last night's game/ceremony out of respect of what Renney did as the HC since the lockout and what he's helped to do for an even longer period.

But progress...any kind of progress...had to be made from Graves' night to last night. And there was zero.

Not to necessarily say Renney was responsible mostly for what's gone on but that's my thinking.

And for what it's worth...I'm sure Renney ultimately was the one who kept Pearn for this season which everyone knew was a mistake.

my one concern - and this echoes what Singn' stated earlier in a different threa, is the Rangers get into a situation where the new coach knows little about the players and their tendencies and it gets worse before it gets better, all the while Sather making the change now because he believes this team is better than they've been performing of late. The expectations for this team have just been raised as this move is more about now than for the future.

Unfortunately this seems like the only way to really go in a new direction.

My personal preference would be Peter Laviolette, though I wouldn't be sad to see Torts take over.

Tortorella would be good, in that he will kick this team's a**es right now, but I worry that he might be one of those fiery coaches who can't hold on to his players for a long time. I do like the fact that Torts is a guy who absolutely loves the Rangers and will go above and beyond for this franchise.

Nolan's a no-go as long as Slats is here: Sather's a good friend of John Muckler.

Well I can't say I'm surprised. Tom Renney is a class act, a smart guy and a good coach and I wish him well. You know he's going to land on his feet somewhere.

That being said, it was time. Something had to change. There's still a long way to go here - Sather's got to go, moves have to be made - but this is a decent start. His offensive strategies just aren't working and while the team played harder on Sunday, overall it just seems they've tuned him out. Most of the blame has got to go towards the players.

I definitely want to see Sather out, but you know how much Dolan loves him and Dolan is extremely loyal to his boys..look at what Isiah had to do to get canned.

As for the new coach, it sounds like it will be Tortorella and that is a solid choice. He's definitely a yeller and maybe that's what this team needs right now. Or maybe they'll revolt against him, but either way, something has to change.
