Hopefully, NYR players are currently sending the message that Tortorella's days as the coach should come to an end. It's hard to understand how this team, who was supposed to win easily it's division title, will just struggle to earn a playoff spot. Having such an uneffective PP with 2 40 goals scorers, and one of the best puck mover in the league is inconceivable.
Messier was at least scoring some goals on a bad team and he was 9 years older.
