Maybe he works with d-men specifically Girardi when defending a 2 on 1 or clearing the traffic out from in front of Hank? When will he work on changing things down low so we don't give up 2 deflection goals a game? What about the abysmal PP? Our top 4 d-men are playing too much, if you don't have faith in gilroy and McCabe insert eminger who can actually play defense so we don't wear out our top 4 because staal and girardi look tired. So what is Torts going to do?
Yes, because it's prefectly normal for the coach to sit there and detail for everyone exactly what his plans are for the next game and going forward...10 minutes after the current game ended during his post game interview.
And seriously...have the team work on accuracy? How? This not peewee hockey. It's a fast game and some players can find the empty nets, and others can't. It's an instinct, some have a nose for the net, others don't. He can't shoot the puck for Dubinsky or Stepan. They have to do it.
Most of your questions are ignoring reality. We give up deflection goals because we have a goalie that plays with ass in the net. Our pp stinks because we don't have many good pp players. Gilroy is in the lineup because this team lacks quality players to man the PP point.
