Frolov/Prospal/Gaborik
Dubi/EC/Callahan
Avery/AA/MZA
Prust/Dru/Boogaard or Dupont
i think the problem ppl have with Torts is that his lines can change on a shift by shift basis...he doesnt give them enough time to generate chemistry. its something so vital to teams. even in my beer leagues chemsitry is so damn vital out there, sometimes the best players play like crap if they have no chemsitry out there, and vice versa. chemistry doesnt happen in a heartbeat, it takes time.

im a huge torts fan, ive made that clear. but i dont like the way he handles his lines one iota. im all for changing it up when its clearly not working, but sometimes you gotta give it a little time to know if it will, or wont work.
