My argument is that effort doesn't equal results and results win games.
There were plenty of opportunities to bench other players on the team, and Tortorella didn't follow up.
And this is where I disagree with you. Blocking shots on the PK, winning battles in the corners, forechecking.... these are all examples of things that that take "effort" and DO have an impact on the outcome of the game.
For example, if Redden made the effort to take Hillen or Sim out of the play in Wednesday's game, instead of just standing around, perhaps the Islanders' first goal could have been prevented.
