    After a disappointing season, the Rangers have announced that long-time coach Andy Murray has been relieved of his duties. Guy Boucher has been hired to take over as head coach.

    Congratulations on picking up one of the best coaches in the NHL. Question is now if the Rangers will play the 1-3-1 system?

    Too funny. I'm a big Andy Murray fan, but given their respective career trajectories, this has to be seen as a good call. To be honest, I've been waiting months for somebody to pick this guy up. I suspect there are a lot of GMs out there who are kicking themselves right now...

    Im certainly kicking myself I didn't even see him on the list when I was looking for a new coach I certainly would have grabbed him

    He wasn't on the list, which I suspect is why he's flown under the radar. But he wasn't already signed in the HFNHL, so he was eligible - like an undrafted free agent.

    I've been a big fan of Murray over the years, which is why I had held onto him so long. The timing was right for a change though... I've been eying Boucher for a while and figured I'd better pull the trigger before someone else did.
