TB's top end talent is as good as anyone's but they aren't deep, they don't get much from their 3rd and 4th lines, and I think Torts knew going in that Ottawa might just be too much for them. They've actually played quite well, as Richards,St.Louis and Vinny L. have been great, but they've been abysmal in nets. MY guess is that Torts has tried every mind game stunt that he can think of to make a difference. I don't get this one though. A coach should be above throwing a player under the bus like that. Even if the guy isn't coming back, his teammates hear and take note of this stuff. Maybe it was the emotion of the moment, but I don't see anything good coming from this.
