    Whatever it’s called, it’s not going to be a long process. Maybe one more really bad year. It’s basically the same situation any coach walks into. The previous coach wasn’t cutting it and the new guy needs to turn-around things.
    I’m sure there were a few instances where the previous coach wasn’t doing great but steps down for health or age reasons. But mostly, new coaches have to clean up a mess. And this is hardly a big mess. Sounds actually like a great opportunity to be *seen* as a hero when in fact the hard work is half-done already.
    Just my two cents...

    Exactly. Babcock is going nowhere. The Torontos would be wrong and criticized for keeping a guy from progressing his career.

    Was thinking this too. But the reality is, these aren’t children. They need *some* motivation, I agree. But players these days don’t respond to a Tprtorella type. Not for long, anyhow.

    I do think AV deserves to prepare and present a plan. And i think he will get that shot. But I also think- based on recent actions and non-actions, the organization is leaning toward moving in another direction.

    That said, how do you imagine things go with AV sticking around? Think he can get more out of the team? Think he has been unfairly blamed? Just curious. I think the Rangers have been underachieving for a couple years now, but I can’t speak to AV’s performance in-and-of-itself. I just don’t know.

    Please provide sources.

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say no one on HFNYR has seen the Hurricanes live as much as I have.

    His peripherals look good on fancy stats but the on-ice product is miserable. And quite frankly the results have been miserable too.

    There is a middle ground between player's coach and Torts. I expect that whoever we hired will be disliked here within 6 months regardless, but I do want a coach to come in here and shake things up a bit. I've had enough of the Muckler-esque complacent players run the room BS

    And you assume that me saying payer's coach means he kisses everyone's ass. I am more so referring to a coach that allows complacent players the autonomy to run the room and culture they way they want to. AV is an idiot, bc he does lean on certain players and obviously plays his favorites, but most coaches do that. Aside from that topic, I just want a more direct and hands on guy that will ensure the new core and such grows with specific expectations of the organization, rather than them figuring it out on their own and running their own room, especially with a general lack of experience.

    It would be difficult for any coach to win with the personnel on D we have had. They also drained the system in an effort to win. Im fine with that.
    The Rangers are lacking in dynamic talent. Not coaching.

    Personnel aside, you see absolutely no problem with the system or the coaching at all?

    Keefe sounds like a good candidate except that the only place I've heard his name come up is on HF Boards (and a small blog entry written by someone from HFB) which is worth 0 in reality

    The Rangers coaching staff will have jobs within days of being fired.
    Its not a coaching problem.
    Its a talent problem.

    Or it is both?

    You can have good people that are not a match for a specific situation.

    There is only one Mike Babcock...

    Well we'll find out, won't we? I would not be surprised to see the Rangers make the playoffs next season under more competent coaching
