I'd love to hear the crazies answer these questions.
Its not just the PP. In fact, I think its just another symptom.
The main problem for this team has been our transitional play. Torts overuses the stretch pass to the point of stupidity.
This has been issue for the past two years. Its also one of the biggest complaints that lightning fans had with him when he was still in Tampa.
Torts is obsessed with trying to stretch the opposing teams defense. However, when those defenders adjust and play static on their blue line-the man keeps sticking to his useless breakouts.
