If Grachev is willing to play both sides of the puck and give consistent effort, I don't think he will have any problems with Torts. You don't need mental toughness to do what the coaching staff tells you.
hahaha this is exactly what I'm saying, though. I guess I should have clarified. Floaters are usually Divas that won't be able to handle Tort's tongue-lashings.
