In my opinion, Torts is a good coach. He is great at motivating guys and promoting them to play a physical brand of hockey. The only problem that I have with his is when the going gets tough around midgame, and the players are not producing, he decides to juggle lines and does not adapt very well to the other teams gameplan. If sending 2 guys deep on the forecheck is not working, switch it up to a 1-2-2 and try to force turnovers or something along those lines. Juggling players accomplishes nothing and ****s with the chemistry of the team, although sometimes you need to switch it up, Torts does it way too much
