Still, I hope he'll rectify the flaws and so I don't want him fired...yet.
agreed. Torts used to announce to the media how bad this team was, and that we weren't a good hockey team.... Well now he has considerably better personel under his charge and we still see persistent problems.
sooner or later we'll find out if Torts can harness talent within his system
