I wasn't the biggest Renney supporter out there, but I can't say I disliked the guy, nor can I say that I believe he deserved this (by this I mean his team giving up on him). I've always thought that his greatest asset is in analyzing the game and going through the X's and O's. Hopefully there's a role within the organization that will enable him to best utilize his skills as he does deserve that.

As I said in many more words in the stickied thread:

Although I'm happy with the move, I thank TR for the many good things that he brought us for the last four years. His time was up as coach, but I hope we retain him in some player development capacity. And whether he stays or goes, I wish him good luck.

Tom, you are a nice guy and very cerebarl, but I will never forgive you for having Jagr, Toots and Girardi on the ice for the final mins of Game 5 in 2007. Why a guy who never kills penalties (Jagr) was out there on the ice 6-on-5 before the icing in a one-goal game is beyond me.

But you were lucky enough to have a franchise goalie and one of the best players in NHL history and three-straight 90-point seasons. You had some part in the resurgence and for that I thank you.

I'm surprised he was completely dismissed. I thought he would be good as an assistant coach but not head coach.

Am I the only one that will miss Pearn's insightful interviews?

There is no doubt that Renney is a great coach and has vast hockey knowledge. Its just unfortunate that his team seemingly quit on him. Its not really his fault just a fact of sports. I dont think he will be unemployed too long. Best of luck to Tom, where ever he ends up he will probably beat us.

Why would he agree to take an assistant coaching position?

give me a break..cant you give the guy some freaking credit? your basically saying he was LUCKY to have the roster he was handed to in 05? aside from jagr he took a bunch of no names and installed a new atmeosphere into a franchise that forgot what winning meant. i agree this move had to be made, but give me a break renney played much more than "some part" in this teams resurgence

A famous saying in history is that "The starter of a revolution does not get to see its result." This very much applies to Renney. Renney might not literally win the cup as the coach of the Rangers, but he sure as hell will be a big part of it if and when we do win one. He brought us out of one of the darkest periods in the history of this franchise. He took a team that was projected to get a lottery pick to the playoffs, and then take them there 2 more seasons after that. It was time for Renney to go. There is no doubt about that. He accomplished as much as he was going to with this team, and that's perfectly fine. I do not have a personal hate for Renney. While I think he had a distorted view of certain things, I also realize that he was far from the worst coach in the NHL. Renney brought us to where we are now. Unfortunately he reached his peak. Someone else is going to have to take us to the next level. Thank you for developing our young talent so well and getting us back to respectability, Tom.

Perry Pearn can go **** himself.

Thanks Tom, It is a credit to you how you helped pull this team out of the gutter and brought us back to respectability!

Pierre McGuire made a great point this afternoon on Mike Francesca regarding Tom's involvement with this teams personel. He mentioned that Tom had little to no opinion in the aquisitions of our recent FA and the signings. More credit to Tom on this one. He put the best he could out there with the product Sather gave.

I have to laugh at this one

1) "No names", huh?: Nylander, Straka, Rucinsky, Jagr, Rucchin, (later Sykora). 6 of the top 7 forwards were 29 or older. same with the defense. Nobody expected Jagr to catch fire like he did, so I guess I have to credit Renney for making the tough decision of matching his best playmaker with his best goal scorer. How did he ever come up with that idea?

2) What winning atmosphere did Renney "install"? You are saying the team won because of Renney. The team started winning because of Jagr and Lundqvist. Do you want me to post game film and boxscores from that season to prove it?

I said he deserves SOME credit for HELPING turn the team around as in he was a stable influence and very good with the media and dealt with distractions accordingly. But by no means was he a great tactician or motivator. You make it seem like Renney waltzed into MSG and Jagr, Nylander, Straka and Lundqvist all of a sudden learned how to win.

His defensive system in 2006 helped minimize shots against from the previous season (2004) by a whopping 0.4 shots a game (29.2 in 2004 - 28.8 in 2006) but the save pct in 2004 was .896 to .911 in 2006 -- a HUGE difference.

So please answer me: What did Renney do that made the team win aside from penciling "L-U-N-D-Q-V-I-S-T" and "J-A-G-R" into the lineup card every night?

Thank you Tom for bringing a sense of class and respect to this franchise. He was just as instrumental as Jagr and Hank were to bringing this team back to from a laughing stock, and making them respectable again. I hope he stays in the organization in some capacity because he truly is a knowledgeable and classy individual. Best of luck Tom.

Tom is a true professional and a credit to every aspect and vision that embodies being a Ranger.

We should hope he stays with this organization in some capacity.

There is no doubt in my mind that this franchise will be much worse off in the future without him.

I have to give the guy his props. He got your team out of the gutter (much to my dismay!) and gave the Devils fits last year. Good coach, and a seemingly good guy as well.

I think Renney is a great team builder. He took us as far as he could go. But it's time for a change. I wish we could keep him in the front office or player development. He is good at that. Thanks for everything Renney. You restored some pride and credibility and brought back playoff hockey to the Garden which stunk of Elephant crap every spring. That cannot go unsaid.

He'll definitely be missed by me. A class act. Showed respect, honor, and humility in what is is to be a Ranger. He showed plenty of perseverance and confidence over the past three seasons. Backed up his players (with the rare exception of Prucha) and was one of the reasons for bringing Playoff hockey back to the Garden. I'll definitely miss him as our head coach.

So please answer me: What did Renney do that made the team win aside from penciling "L-U-N-D-Q-V-I-S-T" and "J-A-G-R" into the lineup card every night?
1-you make it out that everyone aside from jagr were all star players in their primes ..ruchin who you make out to be an amazing player had 43 points the season before the lockout...in strakas last season in the NHL before the lockout he had a whopping 6 goals for 14 points...the last time nylander was in the NHL in 03-04 he scored 17 goals then bounced around the czech republic doing virtually nothing...you make it out like these names were 40 goal scorers ...every major sports media didnt have us in bottom 5 (many which rated us 30th) for no reason

2-so your telling me that for all the years the rangers missed the playoffs they never had any talent on a team. listen, obviously i realize that jagr and lundqvist were HUGE and of course we wouldn't have made it without them, but a team cant be carried by 1 superstar and good goalie, renney had to work with kids who had barley any NHL experience and make them believe that they could be part of something big. this team knew nothing but losing for so many years, and renney was a major part of changing the culture of the franchise

so to answer your question aside from writing jagr and henriks name with a pencil, the guy took every other player on the roster (many with little NHL success and experience) and helped to turn them into a playoff team


...to sum it up, let me reiterate - i think this is the right move ..i just dont believe you give renney enough credit
