Renney says exhausting skate wasn't for discipline, but players are left gasping

GREENBURGH, N.Y. - It wasn't punishment, according to Tom Renney, it was conditioning. Well, there wasn't much scolding. But it sure looked punishing.

On the morning after a 4-0 shutout by the Hurricanes at Madison Square Garden in which the Rangers looked complacent at times, the players were pushed hard in a practice that finished with almost a half-hour of tongue-dragging sprints. The skate was described by several players as the toughest that they could remember.

"We've had longer ones, but this was the toughest," said Henrik Lundqvist, who tossed bottles from an eight-pack of Gatorade across the dressing room to Blair Betts, Ryan Callahan, Dan Girardi, Colton Orr and Ryan Hollweg, who said the session was the longest in years. Orr could only recall one similar skate, earlier this season, when the team was struggling.


Quote:
Two of the team's elder statesmen took the arduous practice in stride: Thirty-nine-year-old Brendan Shanahan carried his sticks off the ice and poked his head in an office. "Ohhhhh, that was great," he said to the trainers. At his locker, a smiling Jaromir Jagr said: "Unbreakable ... They can't break my spirit."

Renney earned my respect last season. He's proven himself to be a fine NHL head coach.
