    They did worse the year he arrived at the deadline, then WAY worse in 10-11 where they were last in goals scored and finished with 81 points, then went to the Cup final in 11-12, and were bad in 12-13.

    The difference was that Parise was out for the season in 10-11 and left before 12-13. Kovy, good as he was in 11-12, wasn't the difference maker for them, it was Parise. Kovy's too talented to call a product of anyone, but he was only ever a ppg player with Parise.

    So I finally got around to watching the press conference. Man this guy is annoying to listen to talk. "I'm happy to be here, uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, it's gonna be a battle getting back in contention, uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, my ass is itchy, uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, let's go Rangers, uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...

    Did I miss something? Who are the associate/assistant coaches? Why haven't they been named yet?

    They haven't been named yet. They're in no rush.

    Article on potential assistants here https://www.blueshirtbanter.com/2018...rs-david-quinn

    Some good names there. Wonder if Stevens would be up for it.

    I'd love to add Stevens, but I think the Isles might entertain him as head coach. Could undercut the Rangers' potential interest.

    Stevens would be great.
    I’m not entirely convinced he’d jump at it tbh.

    Meh. Not excited about any names on there. Maybe Richards or MSL, although I don't think it would be a good idea to put a guy with no experience at all on the bench as an assistant with a first time NHL coach. Or maybe you do? Fresh start for everyone?

    Maybe Grönborg is a good fit? Seems to have a bit of experience.

    What about some of the names that were supposed to be in consideration for the HC job? Rick Bennett and all those names?

    I don't know. I figured the coaching staff would be in place by now. Maybe it's not as important as I thought.

    It would be fun if they went with a EU coach. Grönborg sounds interesting.
