Agreed. It's a tedious system that should only be employed by teams with no skill.

What this Rangers team does have is not only skill, but the speed to go with it. Game in and game out our slowest forwards are Stepan and Asham. Guys who are probably average skaters at the NHL level (maybe below average for Steps).

It all came to fruition after the Lightning game, where Tortorella was pissed that the Rangers found themselves in a "track meet" style game. Okay, I understand you don't want to be in a track meet against the Lightning, but this Rangers team has the ability to run that system. Let the ****ing skill fly.

(This post brought to you by someone who has never liked Tortorella, so I apologize for biases that may be present)
