Very true, and you can see how it's affected individual players differently. Redden and Gilroy are playing well, but the offense has disappeared. On the flip side, you're seeing fewer of the glaring gaffes from Staal and Rozsival.

I'd like to raise the question of Torts' opinion of Rozsival. From undisputed TOI leader and 1st pairing PP anchor under Renney, to least amount of ice time per game of all defensemen and virtually no special teams work whatsoever. Doesn't like the player, or at least doesn't like what he brings?

I definitely had much higher expectations from Rozsvial. "Must go" sounds a little bit too much like something I'd read here though. More like, "Must get it together, consistently, and soon". But like Staal, at least part of making that happen lies with Tortorella. He's really got no choice.
