Last night during the game, Marc called me up and said, “If the Rangers lose this game, Tom Renney will be fired.  Especially if they get shut out.”  I tend to disagree.  If Glen Sather were to fire Renney now, or make any changes, he would be admitting that he failed.  He’s not going to do that because his ego is far too fragile.

I ‘m going to put this one to a vote.  I’m not asking if he should be fired but if he will be fired.

Good Luck Sam

Sam Weinman has decided to leave the Rangers beat to take a senior editor position at http://www.golfdigest.com.  And seriously, who can blame him?  That’s a serious step up from blog writer.

Not to say that Zipay is bad.  I actually enjoy his writing.

From all of us here at 5-hole.com, good luck in your new job, Sam.  You will be missed.

Birthday Tackle

I am absolutely swamped with work today, so sadly, there will not any Birthday Punches today, because I just don’t have time.  Please try to hold back your tears.

However, today is Dominik Hasek’s 44th birthday, and I couldn’t leave him out just because I’m busy.  So I give you one of my favorite clips of “The Dominator”.  Enjoy!
