It's just blows my mind that we've gone from "safe is death" to this in Tortorella's tenure here. If you're going to play dump and chase hockey, you need to actually be able to chase the puck down. This nonsense where we skate the puck through the neutral zone, dump it in, and then watch the other team go back the other way with it is ridiculous. What happened to the relentless forecheck we had last season?

This team isn't an adequate PP away from being a real contender. Richards looks old. Gaborik can't find space. Our third line can't generate sustained pressure. Our fourth line is too slow to create a forecheck. Our second line is invisible. It's a mess all the way around.
