I don't know if you guys want my 2 cents, but from what I've seen the last few days, Tortorella has demonstrated that he does not demand defensive reliability from his players. I have seen more Rangers defensemen fail to step up and take away a shooting lane in the last two games against Pittsburgh than I have in years prior. Some of that is on the defensemen themselves, but the pattern is so pronounced than some of the blame HAS to fall on the coach. Solve that problem and you cut at least half the goals the Rangers gave up out of the equation.
thats the ages for 5 of our 6 defenseman.
