Now he's on to Anisimov. He has even benched Richards this year and that's his boy. On the other side of that, how many times do you see guys like Boyle benched? It's just how Torts is.

Remember, after carrying the team on his back in his first season here with 42 goals or whatever it was, who was the player that Torts threw under the bus after they lost to Philly to end the season?

Torts only tolerates talent if it includes physicality. Richards and Gabby are not physical players.
Yeah but he faded big time in the second half, and I pray it's not happening again. Gaborik needs space and open ice, and as the season wears on the games get tighter. I hope this isn't happening again.
