I don't disagree on that count, he has flaws, every coach does.
But the man has received accolades, and lifted a cup. That doesn't happen by accident.
There are people who will say that oh, yeah well Tampa has some excellent players, it wasn't Torts. Ok. Then that means that it's up to the players to go out and win, and that the coach is devoid of credit.
Then what the hell is the excuse for the skaters?
He's not a perfect coach. But he's not a bad one. I don't agree with many of his calls, but I have to imagine there's a thought process behind them.
