John Tortorella has done a great coaching job since taking over for Tom Renney in February of 2009. He has amassed a record of 145-97-25 and led the Rangers to within two games of the Stanley Cup Finals last season.

Coaches take the blame when things go bad. Rangers fans, and of course, the organization as a whole, expect the Rangers to win it all. They are one of the best teams in the league.
