I don't like the top3 option because I believe when you get to the top1-5 it really comes down to the players. Give any top coach the players like Crosby, Zetterberg, Lindstrom, Datsyuk, Letang, Malkin, etc or not have those guys and how do you say this guy is a number 2 or number 5? IMO it should be a top5 coach and that's it and for that reason I chose 1-3 because I believe Torts is a top5 Coach in this league.
He works his bench better then anyone. He assesses talent at an elite level. He has a solid game plan which he is capable and willing to adjust to meet his player's abilities and the demands of the game. He commands respect from his players and has them maintain an elite level of conditioning. He's successful, with every team.
