In general they're not playing BAD, but PP has to get fixed ASAP and Tortorella should start thinking a bit more offensively now that he has some weapons. Of course, that would also require Hagelin and Stepan to play much better than they have thus far, but still. Wouldn't kill me to see some creative puck movement.
That is a valid point, but fact is the style of hockey we (wish to) play is hard on the players. Getting things working will take a few games and without the regular Torts camp it could be even more. We could change our style of play, but even if we do have some high end talent now, most of our roster still consists of gritty, defense first type of players who aren't equiped to be playing a higher risk kind of hockey.

The changes they need to make would be to have a more aggressive forecheck, take their shots and to get more movement on the pp. I still think Hags and Kreids will find their game and that would probably be enough to get this team going.
