Do you know whether he has scratched and sent down guys with skill simply because they did not play his systemt to a tee? I don't. Until we know that we cannot make a comparison. Defense first is smart. I have a feeling Torts would have scratched Gretzky or lambasted him until he gave up his scoring prowess to play strong away from the puck. Good teams have balance and that means snipers who snipe. Pierre Larouche could never have played for Torts and that would have been to Torts' detriment.

That's the issue; it's the rigidity and stubborness that is having a negative effect on the roster and now on the team's performance.
