    Coaching - Who or What is the Best Coach or Route to Take with this Rebuild?

    The shakeup is so huge one would think it's time for a breath of fresh air in the coaching department, no?

    Does anybody really see AV as the right guy to go forward with this young group? You have to wonder if AV even wants to stay here after what has transpired? Who is the best Coach or what is the best route to take with this Rebuild? AV still or does Ruff take it from here through to the end of the season while management figures out who is right to handle and guide this younger group next year? If so, who is available who might be a good fit for the road ahead?

    I like how you think, but would there be scraps, fisticuffs and a stench of stale beer behind the bench?

    There's some interesting thoughts on that ... and it would some of keep our prized posters —*Mikey, Dunny, Puck 'ed, Josh etc —* in their ketchup-stained seats at home where they belong, wouldn't want to give them up for just a coach

    As coach of the Toronto Marlies, Keefe has led his teams to several terrific regular seasons. While he has yet to win a Calder Cup, he has proven his style as successful at the level he is at now. Furthermore, his AHL experience developing prospects shows his amiability towards young talent, and his penchant for using them in the roles they deserve.

    He led both the OHL Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds and the Toronto Marlies to 50 win seasons. He is ready to make the jump to the NHL. While the Rangers history of selecting coaches makes this seem unlikely, it does not mean the idea is wrong. The Rangers culture must change to fit the changes the league is making, and Keefe is a huge first step towards this.

    New Name. No rehash of old washed up bums who keep circulating. Only person worth visiting is Quenneville. If not him, surprise me with an upcoming coach.

    If I can't have a Sutter I'll take a Hunter, if I can't get a Hunter I'll maybe settle for a Verbeek.

    How many coaches have won cups for 2 different teams other than Scotty? Give me someone with that extra bit of hunger to win.

    They should sign Tavares and then just go: Renney, Torts, AV.

    Worked last time.

    I'm negotiable on AV. And Renney.

    Those three are actually a great team evolution study.

    Renney's Tutorial Hockey
    Torts' Bootcamp Hockey

    Then of course, AV's butterfly version of the game.

    Renney gets intimidated by the hot dog vendor. There’s a guy that should be glued to a youth program. Oh wait ...

    It's sadly true. He's currently in a perfect Tom Renney role. Half of it is just showing up, articulating garbage and being very polite.

    Has he ever been angry?

    I still wanna kick him in the teeth for sending out Straka, Nylander, and Jagr in game 5, up by 1 with a minute left. Cost us a shot at the cup. We would have shit kicked Ottawa in the ECF.

    Nylander probably hopped first and he was too shy to say anything.
