The one who deserves it would be MacLean, but he will not get it as West will prevail due to split East vote between Torts and Mac. Thus, it will be Hitchcock.
whhhaatt? Of COURSE without Lundqvist they wouldnt be as good. That's a surprise...how exactly?
You could make a reverse argument and say, with staal and sauer missing such huge amounts of time, this squad might have been even better....or you could say without Gabby coming back they could have been worse.
blah blah blah.
Here's the truth. Tortorella built an identity, he's played kids in key spots all season long, going as far as putting a kid playing his first ever NHL game on the Rangers top line.....IN THE PLAYOFFS. This team is playing the way its playing because of John Tortorella. They block shots like machines. They sacrifice, all players buy into the defensive approach.
