learn how to be a pro all together
and that are the focus and nucleus of the team, it's a huge advantage," Messier said. "Huge advantage."
Again, this was the direction set after the '03 - '04 season. Things got side tracked unfortunately, but when Torts came aboard the tiller was set straight again. It's taken too damn long, but the original plan is finally coming together.
Who demanded and taught them how to be pros? JOHN TORTORELLA!
