I think Torterella is a big part of this success and a part of our long term success. He has had the chance to see what alot of our young guys can do. He knows the strengths and weaknesses of this team. He is getting the most out of his players (sans Dubi for the first 1/3rd of the season).

I don't think its any accident that we are leading the conference despite having a defense that has been decimated by injuries and a few injuries up front. That is where having a great organizational system and coaching come into play.

The one thing I like most about Torts is he is willing to admit he was wrong and adjust things. Like the first season when he tried to play a run and gun game and hope that Lundqvist could ALWAYS out duel the other goalie. Not keeping the same failed line combinations together like Renney did. He has constantly made adjustments and while some may think its a common sense thing to make the easy adjustments, believe me its not and alot of times pride gets in the way.
