Nice to see the Rangers have already flushed their season down the toilet.

I was hoping Nolan would get a shot this time, christ is that man ever going to coach again?

anyways congratulations to the Rangers now you have a new head coach to be fired 20 games in and replaced by Sather himself.

Not even Slats is stupid enough to hire someone who has tried in the past to get his general manager fired. Nolan is doomed by his foolish mistake and his unwillingness to accept any lesser role than a NHL coach, and will probably rot away never to coach in the NHL again.

And what's so great about Ted Nolan anyways? He won coach of the year, but so did Bill Barber and Bobby Francis, so I wouldn't put much stock in that.

It's a "hold-the-fort" move. the Rangers future head coach is most likely Ryan McGill, who's currently the head coach of the Rangers' AHL affiliate Hartford. If the season is expected to be held up by the lockout, McGill stays in Hartford with the likes of Tyutin, Balej, Murray, Pock, Lampman and Ortmeyer, plus possibly the likes of Jessiman and Montoya (players they are trying to sign and have play there), Liffiton, Baranka and Jonasen, all players who are or could be a part of the Rangers future core. If McGill is named head coach right away, a new face has to take over. Renney coaches once the lockout ends, the Rangers are lousy and get a top five pick (with a shot at Crosby), Renney moves upstairs after playing good soldier, and McGill gets named head coach next year, while the bulk of the players he has coach at Hartford join him in NY.

I think you might very well be right, and McGill could be a very good coach someday. In any case, a lot of coaches who step into the NHL with the big club after coaching their farm team seem to have success.

Nolan had his chance, he was offered the head coaching job for the Lightning in 1999.

On a related subject... what the **** is happening with Quenneville. I am starting to think he may have serious health concerns or something.

The article also states that he will be VP of Player Development as well. Busy workload.

Far be it for an NYI fan to defend NYR, but this selction makes perfect sense, IMO. Suggesting that retaining Renney signals NYR giving up on next season also impleies that a "better" coach would/could mean greater success next season.

Untrue.

This is a younger, rebuilding team. You could put Al Arbour and Scotty Bowman behind the bench at MSG next season and the team will not be Cup contenders. Renney has a good reputation, and there will be no issues with regard to communication with Sather (some may consider that a negative, but its reality, as long as Slats is in charge).

Lots of opportunity to rip NYR. This is not one of them, IMO.

exactly. the rangers will suck regardless. and if all goes well renney hopefully will just be a stopgap through the lockout/a bit of the rebuild.
