I may prefer Tortorella as a coach, but Im by no means absolving him of his mistakes and bad behavior.
Hes got to play the hand hes dealt right now if were going to maximize one of this teams greatest strengths:
Goaltending. We dont have the guns to play his signature style, so hes modified it.
No one style can win indefinitely in the NHL there has to be modifications.
Yea, poor Torts, it must be so difficult with the leading goal scorer in the NHL at his disposal. And yet, this team still only scores 2 goals a game.

Imagine if he had to depend on two ****heads like Gomez and Zherdev instead of Gaborik and Prospal?
