A Ranger Fan's Plea

Joe CorreiaCorrespondent IJune 14, 2016

Hey all, I haven't written on here in a while, but I figured that I'd sound off on the whole "Fire Renney" sentiment that many Ranger fans seem to be sharing lately.

Being 25th in the league on the power play, amounting to 25 PP goals scored, and 12, shorthanded goals against so far this season. That's almost a 2:1 ratio of PP goals scored and SH goals against. This is unacceptable.

This team needs a shakeup. The parts needed to land a prime time scorer are those that most that are reading this and a semi-competent GM would not want to part with and because of this should be kept in order to stay away from depleting the pool of NHL prospects that the team has at the present time.

This is why I think that a trade is not the answer at this point and time, also taking into account the four albatrosses that are Drury, Gomez, Redden, and Rozsival.

What's the next best thing for a shakeup of the team? Some heads need to start rolling. I don't have to tell any of you reading this that what the team is doing now, most specifically in the power play and overall utilization of players on the team, is not working.

If a coach's system of play and utilization of his players is not working, a change needs to be made. I have not, and never will doubt Renney's credibility as a coach, I just simply think that he is the wrong guy to be at the helm with the team the way it is.

I would love to keep Renney in the organization as long as he is in scouting or in a front office job. However, his methods behind the bench simply have not been working with this group of players.

My opinion, in short, is very simple. Fire Pearn, and "remove" Renney from the head coaching position.
