Top coaches always get fired unless you’re name was Scotty Bowman.
Uh, you guys won two draft lotteries and had a 23 year old Norris candidate + arguably the leaguer's best winger both handpick your team in the a span of two years lol
Eakins is coach for a team going nowhere like the Ducks currently. Waiting for picks. So I suppose I'm fine with him, but he is no Barry Trotz or Cassidy or even Boudreau.
Turk's a great player's coach, good at getting the most out of what he has to work with. Wish him only the best in New York. He'll always be a Vegas legend.
Edit: Just occured to me NYR will now be Turk's Rangers, not too far off from their name origin
OK we won 1, got the 2nd OA the other - the Devils are the ones who won the lottery twice
Our Norris candidate was a trade using assets and if Panarin hand picks a team, how is that gifted?
I won't get into the name calling but you may want to reconsider your stance.
And the red wings are stuck with Blashill again
Gallant has never been able to last three full seasons as a coach. He usually gets dumped unceremoniously pretty quickly right in the middle of the season.
His stock is still high and he's probably a good hire but I would have picked a low key market with few expectations to try to last. If he gets dumped quickly once more, this may be his last job.
I love this hire. If he took an expansion Vegas team to the final, I can't wait to see what he does with Panarin, Fox, and Lafreniere.
Vegas and Florida were dumb for canning him
Points aren't misleading at all. Its just a simple fact that the Rangers were 11 points out of a playoff spot, which is pretty far off. They didn't miss by 1 or 2 points.
Just be prepared for some randoms on your board hysterically claiming Gallant is trying to ruin Panarin and Buchnevich because he hates Russians.
Yes he absolutely clashes with management. He also gets rude with reporters but not Torts rude.
The Panthers and Vegas were impatient and Gallant is at times frustratingly patient with his lineup. He likes to ride out scoring droughts and defensive mistakes until his players get it right.
He's like a weird mix of Sutter and Brindamour, with a dash of Therrien.
What's the story there?
Because he absolutely needs to get along with Russians. Panarin, Shestyorkin, and Buchnevich are three of our best players. We can't have a coach clashing with them. Even if Buchnevich is eventually traded, which is not even clear he will be, we still can't have the coach clashing with two of our best players. And then we still have the back up goalie Georgiyev and first round pick Kravtsov, so we have a number of Russians that he must get along well with.
Quinn wasn't a good coach, but there was no problems getting along with Russian players. The prior coach had a problem with Buchnevich, and there were some hints of xenophobia there, so it's not a problem we can have.
There's no story here. He didn't think Gusev or Shipachyov was ready for prime time and he was right.
Finally! Happy for him. He did not deserve to the left on the outside for so long.
AlthoughI think he would have been a better fit on a veteran team.
Makes no sense. You get to be hired by the rich New York Ramgers and get only 3.5? Maybe that's why he got hired cause he was cheap and desperate to get a new job. And if he refused, they would have gotten someone else.
And while Barkov is a Finn by nationality (and Russia), he's 100% Russian ethnically. Was that a problem in Florida? Not that from what I've heard of.
Not sure Gallant is a fit for the NY media but hes good for the team makeup
He will need to tone down his post game pressers and his desire to always correct guys on something wrong, even when they do well
Hes Tortorella-esque in the sense that hes very hard on guys. This works well when the team is succeeding, but wears thin very quickly when its not
I suspect he will be the coach that gets NY to play harder and a tighter System, but wont be there when theyre true contenders. I think he can turn them into a contender but wont be the coach to take them to the Finals
This is probably right imo and that’s fine. This team really, really need that at this juncture
Doug MacLean: "There's no better coaching job than the New York Rangers. It's an ultimate job along with the Toronto Maple Leafs'."
I think a reason it took time for him to get rehired was because he must not be someone that sells himself well. He must be the opposite of Paul Maurice, a guy that keeps getting hired cause he sells himself well but never accomplishes anything. While GG is a great coach but the reason he's a good coach(honesty) prevents him to be a good seller.
Because they are "the rich" New York Rangers they need to pay more? Look I get it that people hate the Rangers but to say this isn't an attractive job (I understand Dolan can be off putting).
Also, "rich" New York Rangers work under the same restrictions as any other team in the league - in fact, the Rangers, Islanders and Devils all have to work with the same cap space yet income taxes aren't considered.
Your team is in the semi-finals.
I still think it's gonna be a Broadway circus
Still? I didn't even know you had this stance in the first place.
