On the WW vs Torts talk, I kind of agree with both sides.

WW, and Z for example, are far from ideel, but at the same time, I've not seen Torts do anything positive with them.

John Tortorella is certainly not good at working with flawed players. He is a straight shooter, he sets a bar and demand certain things, if you cannot provide that from day 1, well you will not be around. There are positive sides with that, and negative sides. There are many examples of great coaches who got a ton out of players that nobody believed in, who where heading in the wrong direction but set straight by their coach. That would of course never happend under Torts. At the same time, everyone knows what the demands are from the get go.
