Do you think the so-called system Torts stubbornly employs on offense, and the PP as well, is suited and optimal for key players like Gaborik, Stepan, Nash, Richards and Kreider ? If so, well.................. OK
Maybe Boyle, Callahan, Pyatt, Miller, the bottom 3 and to a certain point Hagelin can play this game succesfully- I can agree to that ---
but the main to go guys should be used entirely differently IMO as last year is just that, last year. Long gone... But stubborn Mr JAM guy will not and cannot adapt to this regardless who is on the team...
