Great defensive coach, lets his money players play.

maybe Pittsburgh would do well with him?

No team will benefit from having him as a head coach. Every team would benefit for having him as an assistant though.

He is a mediocre head coach at best. he would be one of the top assistant coaches in the NHL i feel though.

Team Canada. Not as head coach necessarily, but as part of the staff. Count on it.

Great assistant coach to handle penalty killing or a player personnel guy. Head coaching though, I can't see anyone bringing him in anytime soon.

If Renney was interested in coaching again (debatable as there have been rumors that he's staying in the Ranger FO) he'd certainly get a job.

And I wouldn't be surprised if he won a Cup.

With all due respect I don't think he is capable of bringing any team in the NHL to a cup.

I actually do not know the answer to the question. It's likely a team with professionals that won't quit on him and who have a good work ethic. I do believe, however, that there are a few quality coaches milling around out (likely including names we don't know, meaning up and comers from College, Juniors, assistant NHL coaches, the AHL, etc.) there so competition for jobs may be tight (sounds like the world outside hockey too).

Like most coaches. You are only as good as your Goalie and your best couple of players.

Lets not act like we never came close to breaking through the door to Conference Finals games.
If we get a little bit of luck in in game 5 of that Buffalo series..we could be talking about a team that went to the conference finals.

Renney isnt a bad coach, his tenure and effectiveness with this team just happened to come to an end. I have no reason to think that he cant lead a team through a few rounds in the playoffs in the future.

he isnt an nhl head coach. i see his future as a gm. best bet for him would be to get a gig as asst gm and be groomed for gm position. if not that, then i would say he needs to be involved with younger players in the minors or with team canada.

he has the intelligence and cool demeanor of an executive. i would have absolutely no problem with him taking slats job in a year or two. hes a quality person and those are the kind of people you want in your organization. but as a head coach in the nhl, i think hes out of his league.

I could see him helping out Ottawa. They have a ton of offensive players that will still put up points in a defensive system (like Jagr in 05-06) and be responsible in the defensive zone too.

Any team. He may be rehired even by the Rangers after Torts will be fired next Nov. Renney knows how to win in new NHL. Disciplinarians like Torts usually fail under new conditions. They get canned this season more than nice guys like Renney (Melrose, Savard, Terrien, Carbonnau may be next). Those hard ashes were helpful in old NHL. Torts, for instance took the last Cup of the old NHL and has worse record than Renney in new NHL.
I hope Torts will adapt the way Hitch and Babcock did. As for Renney, he doesn't have to.

Renney is a good coach, and a good HEAD coach. If he wants to coach again, he'll have little trouble finding a job.

I have a feeling Renney won't have much trouble finding a head coaching position for an NHL team. He coached a team out of the toilet and brought them to the playoffs consistently. He'll get hired.

Probably not.

They choked in the 5th game. A lot of that rests on the coaches decisions in the final seconds.

can we all stop trying to act like we know everything just because:

the team doesnt meet your expectations -> forced to fire coach (facade for how poorly the team meshes together)

Unbelievable how little respect he is getting in this thread. He took a bunch of **** and brought it to the playoffs his first year. He's the reason guys like Callahan, Girardi, Betts, and Tyutin were/are good pieces.

Renney is very good at developing young talent and getting the best out of depth players. I think his problem is with top end players. We see marginal players and depth prospects becoming essential pieces to a team (Ortmeyer, Moore, Sjostrom, Betts, Girardi, Rozsival, Strudwick, Korpikoski, etc). However, we've also seen an incredible number of under achieving top-end players (Drury, Gomez, Redden, at points Jagr, Rucchin, Cullen, etc.) That's why I think Renney had trouble getting us to that next level. He builds a good enough team that makes it into the playoffs and can even be a potential threat, but ultimately the big guys have to step it up against the top teams nightly, and that hasn't happened.

For this reason, a team like the Islanders, Avalanche, Thrashers, or Predators would probably suit him very well. I don't think he would be in a good situation if he were put with an already built team like the Penguins. I think he would be best in a situation similar to what he inherited here. Whether he could take that team deep once he builds it up is the question.

That he brought a team to the playoffs 3 straight years? That's certainly a sign that you're doing something right. Why is it implausible to think that with a different team he could do even better?
