AT least do your research please. McD had 35 points last year as a top pairing dman at 22 years old.

Half the team didn't do **** in the playoffs so Stepan was no different but has been CONSISTENT in the regular season. It is not Torterellas fault that Stepan disappeared come playoff time. What about Del Zotto? Don't forget him.

They are not playing well in spite of him. They are playing well because he is good with young kids.

Torts may be bad with the power play. HE may be horrible at a million different things. This however is not one of his weak points.
