In general, people see what they want to see regarding "the system," especially when the team is struggling. The system, as a whole, is not to dump and chase and it is not to collapse in front of their goal to block shots. These are contingency plans in case something goes wrong - and a whole lot has gone wrong lately.

Anyway, lets not act like Tortorella is stunting creativity. Thats a convenient excuse for a host of players struggling, but its just not reality.

A few posters have hit on the major problem that needs to be addressed. There is no consistent speed in the neutral zone and into the offensive zone. Whether the team carries it on the rush or dumps and chases, that element needs to be there and its just not. For me, thats just as much on the players as the coaching staff.
