Hartnett: If Fired By Penguins, Bylsma Should Become Top Candidate For Rangers

Dan Bylsma’s accomplishments as a whole are hugely impressive for a 42-year-old coach. The Penguins would be foolish to fire Bylsma. He would be welcomed by the Rangers’ organization with open arms.

Silverman: New Rangers Coach Must Have Creativity Coursing Through Veins

Glen Sather must find a coach who understands that the Rangers need to develop their offensive instincts. Tortorella crushed players like Marian Gaborik, those who wanted to put the puck in the net. The next coach can’t be so limited in his outlook.
