John Tortorella's Rangers made it to the Eastern Conference semifinals, but that wasn't enough to save his job. The team fired Tortorella on Wednesday after five seasons. Tortorella was 171-115 with the team, but only 19-25 in four playoff appearances, with his most successful season ending in a loss to the Devils in the 2011-12 Eastern Conference finals. Tortorella's blunt style may not have produced a championship, but a run of consistent success like the Rangers have experienced might be hard to replicate.
