this thread and others like it are reason i hate a lot of our fans...i think im going to stop comming here for a little while
Ill agree with you there. Tortorella is committed to the youth movement, and he has the temperment/mentality to produce a team thats a bunch of rabid dogs by the time they take the ice - hence the physical/hard working identity.

My problem with Tortorella is when the going gets tough and more than motivation is needed. I dont see a tactician at all. I dont see a guy thats very capable of making any adjustments to the gameplan in the middle of a game whatsoever.

His answer to ineffectiveness, almost exclusively, is to switch up his line combinations and try to catch lightning in a bottle.

You give Tortorella a team with enough talent, and this isnt a real issue - but we ain't there yet.
