Awarded to the league's worst coach
And the winner is:
How many times can we talk about a Rangers team that was far worse than they should have been? As many times as it takes until someone finally does something about it. A team with the likes of Marion Gaborik, Chris Drury, Vaclav Prospal, Olli Jokinen, And a bunch of talented younger players should not struggle to score. But struggle they did, and the final nail came when Tortorella held his team back from going on all-out offense in the dying moments of the final game of the season. The gamble did not pay off: The Rangers lost in the shootout, and the team missed the playoffs.
Whatever it is you tried to do last season, you should do the opposite this year, Mr. Tortorella.
