My main issue with Torts system is mainly around the overuse and implementation of the "stretch pass".
I get why he does it. Torts wants to keep the opposing team honest, so that they do not overcommit on the attack. Also, that our Dmen are giving defensive coverage in our end in case of turn overs in the neutral zone.
But, it is so unbelievably ineffective imo, save for a few set plays here and there. Its almost willingly giving up the puck to opposing team. Our forwards are too far up ice and stationary in the neutral zone. That doesn't even take into account the times where those passes get intercepted by opposing players anyways.
How the hell are you going to penetrate a zone consistently when your forwards have no momentum half of the time?
You can't even do proper dump ins because our forwards are usually flatfooted when the puck is entering the offensive zone.
its awful, its ALWAYS been awful(including last year).
