Does anyone else feel that gabby and Torts have a bad relationship. In his quote he pretty much says I do not like how the lines always change, I wanna get used to one guy to play with. I agree with that.
I was thinking the same thing when I saw that quote. Torts has taken a few media shots at Gaborik as well (blaming him for the shorthanded goal on Sunday, a couple of comments about "I didn't notice our superstar"). Torts has done this before (Lecavalier), but it doesn't seem like Gabby is reacting particularly well to it.

I'd love to see Torts match up a center with a winger on each line. He would still be able to mix up the other wingers when he wanted to change it up, but that would give some consistency as well. Something like:

X- Stepan- Gaborik
Dubinsky- Anisimov- X
Avery- Drury- X
X- Boyle- Prust

Callahan, Fedotenko, Christensen, White, Frolov and Boogie can be worked in on the lines however Torts sees fit.
