wait a second..

you can't blame a guy, coaching a team with a wattered down roster, for trying to roll with who's hot that game....not saying i'd do it, but i undserstand why he did it, and its not what held this team back
Isn't Gaborik saying though that in order for people to "get hot," they need to have time to develop chemistry with their linemates? I don't think anyone would fault Torts for rolling with the hot line, but for lines to get consistently hot, they need to have more than one period playing with each other.

It's like all the people that said let's sacrifice short term (this season) to help the long term (better draft pick)...so, let's sacrifice the short term (a few games) to help the long term (developing line chemistry).
