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


I agree. He helped.

So many of the post-lockout team ties are gone now...

He did a good job while here. Something had to be done to try and salvage this season though. Thanks for the good years, coach.

Thank you Tom Renney. I will definitely miss TR as the coach of this team. It was time for a drastic move... I agree, but in my eyes the wrong man got fired today. Hopefully we'll see him as director of player personnel.

We need a GM.

Have to say that we miss more than just Jagr from that post lockout team. A number of characters including Nylander a terrific puck controller, Straka--not only his scoring but always getting on his bicycle and racing back to help the D. Ortmeyer as limited as he was hit everything that moved and was an insane shot blocker and penalty killer. And in the last couple years Avery who ratcheted up the intensity game in and game out.

Thank you

Thank you coach. You lead us back to respectability, you made us better men and players. Sometimes there is a plateau and I think that is what happened. We won't stop believing because you didn't stop believing, we will adjust. Here's hoping you stay with NYR. You are a class guy, thank you again

Thank you Renney, thank you for four wonderful years. And thank you for basically giving us Zherdev. Without Renney, that means no Tyutin, and without Tyutin that means no Nik Z.

Thanks again Coach Renney. You probably don't even read these boards but you were our best coach since Mike Keenan. Like others have said, you did what you could with what you had but in the end obviously the players were not 100 percent on board. This is a shame because the team's problems right now stem moreso from the players then the coaching staff. Good luck and I do hope you remain in the organization; the players in the organization and our minor league teams are all here in some way, shape or form because of your input.

Renney is a classy guy. His team just bailed on him. Which is shocking I must say. So disappointing. I'm sad to see it end this way for him in New York.

I liked Tom Renney. He's a good man, and a good coach. The same way Roger Nielson was a good man, and a good coach. But some guys bring you half way and others take you home. Thanks for all you did, and it was alot. But it was time...

Theres a difference between a class act and a good coach.

Tom Renney was a great man, a classy man, a players coach. I liked him a lot.

Tom Renney was not a good coach though. Not at all.

To say Tom Renney is a bad coach is just wrong.

Renney is a good coach, but he was a bad fit for this team.

If you put him in a different situation, I think he's a damn good coach.

This is the NHL where the only thing that matters is results. You don't win, you're out.

If Renney was the coach of your kids hockey team, I think your kid comes away from the experience better for it after playing for him.

He was better to his players than his players were to him. I never thought I'd quote Michelletti, but there you go.

I liked Renney a very nice guy. I had the pleasure to meet him a couple of times, very classy. Would wish his reigne would continue, but unfortionatly he lost the team. Not saying it's his particular fault, but a change was needed. With that i want to wish Tom the best of luck. I hope he'll stay in the oranizatoin, any news on this?

It's because he's a VERY good coach that he will have no trouble finding another job in this league as a head coach. It's because he has the ability to make something out of nothing, which is what he did year after year here with a group of scrubs and underachievers, a quality few possess.

Renney has been, by far, my favorite coach in all my years as a Rangers fan. He accomplished so much, with so little.

I don't agree with all of the questionable decisions he made during his tenure here. But he did a lot more right, than wrong.

This was a "thanks for what you've done" thread, not a bash Renney's coaching abilities thread. Thanks for ignoring the very first sentence of my post though!

Really, this isn't a debate thread. It's a say thanks to Tom thread. Not a critique Tom thread either. Juuuust a say thanks thread.

Thank you Tom! I keep thinking about what one of the best posters around here (Edge) predicted late last year when there were threads calling for Renney to be fired...Renney had taken us as far as he could and the next coach would take us to that next level. Here's to that prediction and Renney from rescuing us from the doldrums
