He knows Callahan (possible team captain) and McDonagh well and he was an assistant in 2010 so he knows all of those players - and we need every little advantage can get if we want gold in Sochi.
If Team USA plays the style that Torts has implemented in the Rangers, USA won't win a game. His style handcuffs skilled players and forces everyone to win battles in the corners instead of playing a free flowing game and allowing Team USA's skills to take over.

The thought of Phil Kessel or Patrick Kane trying to win battles in the corners makes me want to throw up.
