    Turns out that Gorton does know what he's doing and now has decided that we need to start out on the right track this offseason

    Went on an unsolicited tirade about how he believed he'd be back, and how he and the coaching staff were the organization's strongest asset.

    Delusional. Also blamed Hank of all people at one point for the teams failures. Take ownership, buddy. You’ll never succeed until you do.

    I'd feel a bit better if Arniel and Ruff were included.

    “I believe that we’re a goaltender getting on a roll here to being back in the hunt and back into the playoffs,” Vigneault said. “We started our season 4-7-2, and we were a little inconsistent in the goaltending department. I felt we were playing better than our record indicated. Goaltending got better, we went on a (18-7-3) run. Came back from the bye week and since that time, we’ve been on a (3-10) run. A little inconsistent in the goaltending department. I believe that we’re playing better than our record indicates, and I really believe that Hank and Pav can get on a roll and we can get back in the hunt and we can get back in the playoffs

    So happy. Only person maybe happier is ozzy. No more pond hockey and unequal accountability.

    Makes trading miller even more confusing but hey at least they got this right.

    When Torts was fired, I was overjoyed. Not because of his personality disorder and pressers but because I hated watching his game, which was basically playing like you're shorthanded all the time, don't challenge for the puck so long as it is on the perimeter and have everyone block shots and get injured. This is a totally different emotion. Just sad, even though I agree with the decision. I think his defiant speech probably hastening the dismissal by a couple of days. As for the speech, I will admit that I am a bit haunted by his observation that the Canucks are on their third coach with no results in the five years since he was fired.

    Because they made the wrong hires, and made a slew of bad decisions. Firing AV wasn't among them.

    Truly the ending of an era and the turning of a page. Hank awkwardly holding out and refusing to see the writing on the wall is the last true piece of that Rangers core that created the winning culture on this team. Next season will definitely have a new, uneasy but exciting feel to it.

    Brooks' spitballing replacement coaches. Some of these names make me cringe.

    Just say no to Bylsma, Tippet, Roy or Torts.

    The Torts one made me laugh. Why would anyone think that would work again?

    Not a chance. Just because of Lundqvist.

    McKenzie: AV Has Been Fired

    Iím only surprised that it happened so soon. We had a good run with him right out of the gate but in the end, he never truly evolved as a coach and ended up repeating his mistakes with the NYR. Itís never fun when someone loses a job but thatís what happens in the sports business.

    Vacuum the Red Carpet boys and get ready to usher in the next leader on 7th Ave!
