Exactly, and that is what mattered. Everyone wanted Torts to come in and give results, but it takes time to construct a team from the ground up. It took Tortorella 4 and a half seasons to win a cup in Tampa, and their core players were in their prime. Our core players are 3+ years away from their prime.

Give it time, trust the process.
