It's defense first when it comes to this coach. That's why Miller is seemingly already a favorite.
I remember a Tortorella interview prior to the start of the season. He was asked what he did during the lockout. He said he watched the Whale a lot, but had to stop because "I started to form opinions about certain players".
Not certain he was referring to Kreider but it's possible
There is no question he dislikes Kreider. The funny thing is that his defense has gotten better. The poor kid is really sacrificing to be better defensive player but he cant catch a break with Torts. Eve last year Kreider was a main reason we got past ottawa and torts never really gave the kid credit. I mean i like Miller but he has had a lot of lapses yet Torts gives him a pass. My fear is that Torts will push to trade him and he will end up on boston or jesey and he will become the player we all think he can be
