Exactly. It will take time for him to get going, as it will the team in general because of all the new faces. People are simply ready to jump off a bridge because of the shortened season and all the waiting during the lockout. People wanted to see a team in mid-season form right out of the gates. The Rangers are one of the teams that suffered the most from not having a full training camp. Torts' system depends on conditioning and his "system" and with all the new face a full training camp was needed. Now they're all trying to learn it and gel on the fly.

Hopefully it doesn't take too much longer for them to gel, because with the shortened season it could quickly become a problem.
