If this is the case, why isn't he scoring then? Kreider has been noticeably ineffective this season. If he screws up on D, it is a big deal. Turnovers exist for a reason and giving the other team the puck is generally frowned upon.

He got rid of Orr & Scott two top fighters in the league, why get rid of them, you dont play 4th lines anyway!!.. PROBABLY he is afraid of them.
What does Orr have to do with anything? Guy hasn't been on this team since forever and John Scott is a horrible hockey player. If they make up your 4th line, that's called a bad hockey team.

torts only rolls 3 lines in a game when teams uses all 4 lines, and uses 4 defensemen instead of 5 or 6.. he has his top 6 players that run 20+ minutes a game, Of course they will be tired an make mistakes.
I would have agreed with this last season. I find it to be significantly more balanced this year especially on D. Gilroy and Stralman eat up way more minutes than Stu ever did.

Devils 4th line destroyed us in the playoffs with Carter & Henrique.......
Henrique is FAR from a 4th liner, but that's just nitpicking on my part.

Every team in the league is wise to torts system.. He has Rick Nash a 30/40 goal scorer getting $8M and he is blocking shots!!!. He is there to score goals an set up the other guys,,.Between Gaborik, Nash, Krieder the rangers should roll..
Good. Nash is working the system and I'd say he is doing a pretty damn good job of it.

All the kids get yelled at or benched for mistakes but if Richards, girardi or stall makes a mistake its OK!.. thats bullcrap.....
Fair enough. Richards and Gaborik should be held to a higher standard and they do noticeably get excused from Torts doghouse.

This team looking at it should win the cup the next 2 yrs..Torts disrupts the team chemistry to much.. Torts knows it is a short season if he screws up this weekend an goes 8-8 beware, an hope he gets the hell out of town....

maybe get Lindy Ruff time for a change
This has been reiterated around here for a few days. If your so worried about disrupting the team, why fire the coach? Talk about upheaval. I was preparing for the worst with the the Lindy Ruff firing and I'm starting to see it.
