Essentially trap hockey.
Tortorella preaches puck pursuit, forechecking, high conditioning, and player accountability.
So what does Renney's gum chewing have to do with coaching styles?
Torts preaches all of this stuff, but that doesn't mean anything. It's the results I care about and right now we're not faring any better than we did under Renney.
A "system" by definition
methodical. What's more creative about Tortorellas system? Is it more creative because of the forecheck? The conditioning? Or is it the fact we have a superstar winger in his prime, and a puck moving d-man who can run the PP and make incredible stretch passes to start the offense?
