Teams that won a playoff round last season:
Flyers: Missed playoffs. Nobody saying fire Lavy.
Devils: Missed playoffs. Nobody saying fire Deboer
Coyotes: Missed playoffs. Nobody saying fire Tippett
Predators: Missed playoffs. Nobody saying fire Trotz
Blues: Lost in round 1. Nobody saying fire Hitchcock
Caps: Lost in round 1. Nobody saying fire Oates
Kings: Still alive.
Rangers Still alive.
But fire the only coach aside from Sutter who has won 3 playoff rounds in the last 2 years, for his "failure" of a season, a completely ass-backward season at that, with no training camp, no practice time, no depth, and a revolving door of players and injuries.
Jump aboard and drink the Haterade Rangers fans, along with an unprecedented number of talking heads calling for our coach's head including Avery, McKenzie, Savard, Hull, and Milbury.
Why? Because you don't like how he deals with the media? Because you (the big coaching expert) don't like his tactics. Because you think you know how the players feel about him?
How about the only thing that matters in this business: Results.
The only argument of value is: because the power play stinks. Fire a coach with his level of success because of that one aspect of the game?
