Former New Jersey Devils coach Larry Robinson has taken himself out of the running for the New York Rangers' head coaching job. Robinson said the job was never formally offered. 'I didn't think I could change my personality, and I didn't know if my personality suited what they had,' he said. 'I was looking forward to the challenge, but I didn't have that real excitement when I thought about taking this job.'
