    A couple of my friends have Phantom tickets and they think Gordon did a phenomenal job. He would be a great hire as an assistant.

    Scott Gordon is the guy that should have been given the head coaching job quite frankly

    I wouldn't mind MSL. Different breed of guy who processes hockey better than the rest. But with little coaching experience I am not sure how big a role he would have if any, seeing players to coaches isn't always very good.

    Just get me a guy that knows how to a design and run multiple Powerplay variations - we damn well have the personal for a Top 5 Powerplay.

    After 10 years of struggling to find a decent powerplay (aside from the year Yandle was here) I am starting to think we don't have the personnel for a top-5 powerplay.

    Bowness has plenty of prior experience coaching in the NHL.

    Lil Stevie trying to figure out the magic equation to build a champion.

    Not all that dissimilar to his first 14 years in the NHL.

    This seems to be a plague for us. It seems like we can never get a sound powerplay unit, players, and coach. Understandable that it doesn't always work, but for a lot of the seasons, Rangers units just look clueless.

    He seemed to be one of the lightning rods for Tampa fans anger after their season ended

    Shattenkirk getting injured and then missing half the season is probably a pretty big factor in the power play success last season. If he's healthy the power play should be good almost regardless of which coach is running it

    It could have also helped if the team choose to outnumber the defenders in front of the net , or in corners. They were far too buys prancing on the perimeter instead of quickly shooting and taking away line of sight.

    I wonder if Clark Donatelli is being considered for an assistants position?

    Former Ranger draft pick, BU player, good track record in AHL last 2 and a half seasons since he took over as HC.

    Also played with Leetch and Richter on that great 88 US National team.

    I am sure that Quinn is going to want at least one person he knows on a pretty good basis.

    Is there any fanbase that DOESN’T hate their assistants?

    Apparently, the assistant coaches are the root of all problems on HF.

    When things go wrong, coaches are blamed
    When things go right, players are praised

    It's the way it is. In every sport.

    He must have been the one who told them all to play the last two games like it was preseason.

    One of his closest friends and a former BU assistant Scott Young, but he just took a front office job with the Penguins this past year.

    Albie O'connel his longtime BU assistant?

    Maybe another assistant, longtime Princeton Coach/assistant coach Len Quesnelle?

    His assistant coaches in the AHL were former Rangers Dan Laperriere and David Oliver.

    Steve Rohlik, head coach of Ohio State was also an assistant at U of Nebraska with Quinn.

    We’ve mentioned Scott Gordon and Joe Sacco in here. To piggyback your other point, Clark Donatelli also played 3 years with Quinn at BU.

    I think they're lazy w their approach. They take a way too calm approach to the PP. Hot potato passing, standing still, no net presence. They think that bc there's more of them that they can just pass around the perimeter until something easy opens up. Guess what? Something easy wont always open up. Sometimes you have to bust open an opportunity. That's why this team was pathetic against teams that stacked the blue line. It's not easy enough to break through. It takes actual physicality.

    That would be an outstanding bench. I think he has ties to Jay Leach too.

    If we’re lucky, well get one of them and then I’m expecting Ruff to stay

    Our PP was 14th despite injuries to Shattenkirk and Zibanejad. That's not exactly a tragedy.

    Yeah I feel like the “our powerplay sucks meme” is outdated by like 4 years.
