I approve, hes an excellent coach and gets the most out of his players.. His system isn't dump and chance.. they play to the strength of their team which is playing below the hash marks and cycle and get the puck to the net, also d trys to pitch in and get in the lanes for shots... if its dump and chance, how come nash skates with the puck and drives the puck to the net? come on guys.. Last night was the first time i;ve seen in a while he kept all 4 lines the same.. I don't think it was a terrible game on the rangers, thought they out played the Canadians but it was ugly in the sense it was boring... Canadians played a trap entire game and look how many icings there were, you can't get in a groove with them constantly icing the puck..

Kreider to me doesn't have the killer instinct like he did when he first came up (playoffs/after injury this year), deff needs to skate harder, but he should be up bc he has the skill forsure..

Miller i think makes mistakes but has been playing good and will only improve.. Remember coaches look at the little things they do right then stats like us fans doo..

Stepan has been playing great, awesome two way game and playing the way he should.. production will come but its not a one man pony show out there, he needs help and hagelin has been playing like a man possessed...

Gab/richards=enough said...

Nash..been playing great forsure..hope the injury isn't serious, but more of a precaution..

Back to Torts though, we dont know what happens behind close doors and 2nd he's a great leader and developed a lot of our young core to the levels they are at now and will only improve.. I think he took a lot of guys that nobody wanted (Stralman, Boyle, Mitchell, Prust ) all to levels they weren't playing at with other coaches/organizations, and he has to be commended for that.. Sauer is deff missed hardcore, wish he were back but overall the young guys are going to make mistakes but torts holds everyone accountable which I LOVE, its missed in a lot of pro sports and he isn't afraid to call them out.. team 6-3-1 in last 10 so lets calm down and watch how the season goes on...
