Torts' system is too defensive. It is too safe. This constant dump and chase is boring and uneventful. They turn the puck over every time they do that. And what's worse is if you're really watching, they dump it in get beat to the puck, the puck slides up the boards and our defenseman start pinching but they are a step too late therefore odd man rushes keep happening.
Besides. We didn't get anywhere near where we needed to go. We would never have won the cup that way. We got rewarded the Sens because of a great regular season. Then however we got lucky getting the Caps and the Devils. Couldn't even beat the Devils, they made us look silly. Because we had eek by wins against 2 pretty mediocre teams we were tired against a team that was the weakest cup finalist since the 06 Oilers. We got lucky last year and still couldn't capitalize. Still looked bad winning 2 series. Arguably outplayed in both.
