If Tortorella is in touch with the reality of the situation, then he would know he's not a "lightning in a bottle" combination away from opening a floodgate of offense. At some point, you've got to go with chemistry, complimentary parts and pure logic and let it take you as far as it can. It seems pretty obvious where the grabbing at straws approach has gotten the team.
Can't disagree. He changes it up too often and should just rely on logic and patience. He should let the players figure it out on each line. Keep those lines in practice. Work on each individuals role. IF the players arent the right combination to make things work, then you have to assign roles on the line and stick with them. The problem is, there hasnt been any chemistry really... besides Prospal and Gabby. EC and Gaborik has clicked here and there. Lets not make them out to be Hull and Oates.
