Torts' system is not rocket science. In a nutshell, it revolves around playing hard, forechecking hard, winning battles, and playing responsible defensive hockey. These are tenants that shouldnt be altered or changed. Torts guided this team to its best finish in nearly 20 years. Hes put an end to the days where the inmates ran the asylum, and Im thankful for that. If players arent going to buy into his principles, they simply wont play, and thats fine with me.
That's a bit of a contradiction, don't you think? First talking about a lack of a full camp and some turnover, and then stating the system isn't rocket science (thereby implying it should be a somewhat easy and straightforward system to learn and adapt to).

From what I've seen so far this year, there are a dozen guys on the roster who aren't playing hard. Can't exactly sit half the team.
