Terrible motivator, coaching skills are slightly above average at best, and his whole coaching philosophy just sucks.
So he doesn't win stanley cups when the talent isn't as good? Oh wow go figure.
But seriously he's fine. He gets a lot out of the team, probably as much as he can. Players are ultimately responsible for their own fortunes. These "systems" coaches employ are nothing more than plans which must be executed, and if not, ultimately lead to failure. Any system can function given proper personnel.
Devils are a prime example or Detroit, they employ a system and sign/develop personnel to fit within it. The Rangers are doing the same around Tortorella. Give it time and the system will become the NY Rangers.
