This certainly is an interesting debate.
But lets go back to the title of the article
"Tort's Rangers revert to Renney style"
If you are talking about systems then its obvious that Tortorella doesnt play the same system as Renney did. They are night and day in their theory of the game, no matter how many adjustments they make.
If its purely about an adjustment to the approach you take into a particular game or stretch of games and you want to call that a "style" then fine, Torts has adjusted the team to be more defensively conscious. But it doesn't mean he has "reverted" - meaning to return to a former condition or practice - to Renney hockey IMO.
How you perceive this argument is a big part of what side you lie on here.
