Tom Renney was asked today if the Rangers needed to make any moves before the trade deadline. This is a no-win question for a coach because it does him no good to sell his current team out. And if he insists the Rangers are staying pat and they end up making a move anyway, he’s being dishonest.
With that in mind, Renney handled the question as deftly as he could.
“I think we can win with what he have and if someone has a different opinion I’d be willing to listen to that,” he said. “But if we did nothing we’d still go after our playoff spot and give it a good shot when we get there.”
My translation? “It’s Glen’s call, but here’s hoping he’s got something cooking.”
