Maybe. But the problem here is that Tortorella's system that he's been running since the middle of 09-10 worked perfectly with the type of players that we had. Now that we've got a very different roster, he hasn't adjusted. I'll throw in a huge word that goes along with your point: yet.
I was pretty vocal against the Nash trade. Not because I didn't want Nash, but because I didn't want Nash at the price of those two players. Water under the bridge though.
