Well, the Rangers gassed Tom Renney on Tuesday; so reports the New York Daily News. All of which means that Flyers coach John Stevens moves up another rung.
Stevens is in his second full season as the Flyers' coach.
He now has the third-longest tenure in the NHL's Eastern Conference.
It seems impossible. But if there has ever been a sign of the impatience of our current world, in the NHL and NBA especially, it is that simple fact. In the NHL overall, Stevens is 11th in tenure at his current team. But in the East, so balanced, so competitive, so perpetually insecure, he is third. He got the job on October 22, 2006, and he is damn near a lifer by Eastern Conference standards.
