but, this has not happened.... The powerplay is still AWFUL. There is no way with the names on this roster that you can excuse this, yet he hasn't done anything to try and resolve this.
It seems as though this team doesn't practice any kind of passing or transition work in practice. They really struggle trying to make things happen on offense and Richards and Gaborik really haven't looked great a lot of this season.
I don't know how this team can be so inconsistent this year... I don't know if Torts message is being lost among the players, but the whole team just isn't playing smooth at all. I don't want people to say anything about a training camp. Every team had barely any camp and when I watch other games it seems every other team makes it a lot easier to make things happen in the offensive zone.....
This system sucks and Torts is just too stubborn to do anything about it.
I still feel this team is only going to finish as a 7th or 8th seed.
How do you expect the team to be any good at transition hockey and skating though the neutral zone if they only practice the dump in get numbers cycle game.
Torts the one trick circus pony .
1 missed PO
2 out in 1
One HUGE LOSS TO NJD IN ECF.....
He's done nothing . The young players people clamor about HIM developing are doing so in spite of him . Red Berenson developed Hagelin not necessarily Torts . Same can be said for mcD and Step at Wisconsin etc etc . Wake up this guy blows
