    It's not even a question of analytics having validity or anything else, for a coach, AFAIC.

    This coach's job is going to be molding young talent into professionals. For that reason, I'm not concerned with them either being on board with "analytics" or not. I don't care if they hate Corsi or love Fenwick...That had very little with teaching Chytil how to be the best player he can be.

    “Analytics” is a slide rule while others do math in their head.

    I don’t see Rangers management analyzing a coaches corsi stats when making this decision.

    Some use of data is wise as is a reliance on 'seat-of-the-pants' or 'eye-test' managing. A combination is ideal IMO. It would be dumb not to use data to decide who should take a late face-off v. a particular opponent IF the data says player X should go to the dot. If that is in conflict with a gut call, then that needs to be reviewed too. What's the prejudice? Data can confirm a hunch or excoriate a bad decision...and of course, numbers can be argued to support almost any conclusion. Hiring a old school guy who doesn't look at numbers is short-sighted. Hiring a Quant is not the sure path to success either. Make sense or am I delusional?

    What I really want to see is a coach who is capable of nurturing young players since that is our team's direction next year and for years to come. Also someone who is not a re-tread. I guess what I'm looking for is some out of the box thinking by Gorton. We don't want to watch a movie we've already seen time and again.

    I don’t care if the next coach is a retread or a rookie. I just want structure back. I want a guy who is ok with teammates sticking up for one another even if it means you may have to kill a penalty. And yes I want a coach who levels equal punishments and praise at the entire roster. That plays the best players and most deserving regardless of the name on the back of the jersey. The rangers can be bad as that is what rebuilding teams do but they can still play with pride and force others to beat them instead of beating themselves.

    Bingo Franny! I'm on board with this....

    I'm really curious to see how Gorton does this. I would have taken a one-armed monkey that speaks Swahili over AV, so any of those guys Phil listed would be like winning the lottery!

    Supposedly Quinn from BU is close with Drury and Gorton to a lesser degree. I would imagine that would make him a logical guy to come here if he’s interested.

    Jettisoning AV and his shitty coaching is a big plus for this team.

    Onward and upward!

    McKenzie just dropped a tweet storm regarding Peters and Dundon. In effect, it sure sounds like he's on the way out.

    I’m hearing Quinn wants a lot of money to leave BU.
