I dont want him fired. But I disapprove. On the following criteria.
On ice : The Line Changes F , The PP F, The Line Combos C, How long am I going to see Gabby w/ Richards when they have zero chemistry ? Stepan belongs with Gabby. His favorites when slumping no benchings. Richards nada, Stepan nada.
Until recently he had playing the six people he "trusts" on the entire team like some Bataan death march. I'm sorry nobody else is playing their 6th defenseman 2 minutes a night consistently in the entire league.
Stu Bickel On Wing F
Off The Ice - I'm sick of hearing about we need more Jam, Stiffness, cowboy from player X. How bout we would like to see X player rush the puck more or free wheel. His inflexibility at times is maddening. Not bringing in a PP coach to me is a neglection of duty.
His media relations F abysmal. he needs anger management. its embarrassing as a fan to have that guy represent your team in a press conference.
Following players should never see PP time. Girardi, Pyatt
If Torts can somehow transform from a guy who coaches like he doesnt have the horses into a coach that realizes he now has the horses, the skies the limit.
Nobody in the entire NHL plays the way Torts wants the Rangers to. In their own zone blocking shots all night, and having Hank bail you out. Sticks in lanes etc. It's exhausting. Spending an entire shift in your zone is not a counter or an opportunity to create chances off defense. it's a high probability opportunity to get scored on especially when your Vezina trophy goalie is still working on his game.
In the Tampa game which they dominated T.B after the early track meet, he said in his post game that he wish they had blocked more shots but couldnt because the Rangers spent too much time in the Lightnings end.
Isn't that the point ?
