feels better than 2 days ago, hard to be worse.

I'm not trying to pour cold water over everything, but!

Lets remember that when Iron Mike was here, there was also Messier, a truly great leader. The team was made up of mostly older, more experienced players.

So far, Torts seems to be saying the right things and I think Schoeny will be a great help with the younger players. The only guy I wonder about is Zherdev. This could be a great thing for him, Iron Mike made a hockey player out of Kovalev. Or, it could be his last season in the NHL or with the Rangers, depending on how the KHL looks by mid-summer.

I have always had issues with the Keenen/Tortorella type coaches...short shelf life. No doubt the Rangers needed a shakeup and you can't get much bigger then 8.0 on the Richter Scale, & I don't refer to Mike Richter.

I hope he has learned something since his days in TB. I think that's the case, based on some of the things he has said. But a Bobby Knight is always a Bobby Knight, so time will be the judge.

I mean really ... who cares about the fact that these types of coaches have a short shelf life??? ALL NHL coaches, with very few exceptions, have a short shelf life ... it's all about what have you done for me lately ... Look at Therrien ... look at Savard ... I mean ... really now
