I have a slight inkling that with the progress of this team as a young team this year, you're going to see Tortorella change up styles next season. I don't care what anyone says, this group has the players to play a more aggressive offensive system next year, Richards or not. The big thing holding them back from doing that was the D, not the forwards, and we've had two major revelations on the backend this year. Tortorella didn't want to change system-horses mid season, so he has stuck with his system that stifles the talent on this team while protecting his young D from killing their confidence. To me, this is part of why this was and is a transition year.

Next year's game and team will be more suited to Gaborik and we'll see him back to form. I truly believe that.
