consistency and effort is not always there which is problem number one. the other big problem is the system. real life is not a video game. you can't throw nah gaborik and richards on a line and expect three 85 point players either. the system which torts has in place in great. pounding, grinding lunch pail hockey, and it could be very very successful.but you have to have the personnel to run this system, if you don't it just looks like dump and chase hockey like we have been seeing. the best weapon in this system is puck possession on the fore check down low getting a pass back to the point for a shot from the dmen and then hoping the shot gets screened and goes in, or it's deflected, or our forwards down low bang home the rebound. that's this systems bread and butter. the rangers do not have point men with that heavy shot or uncanny ability to have "a puck with eyes" get thru. Look up the stats. when NYR is successful their dmen rack up assists.. problem is that no one is a constant threat. theres not letang karlsson heck i'd even settle for souray. Del zotto does it, but not often enough. if this is the type of system they are going to run this is the biggest thing that needs to be addressed or it will fail over and over again. the best offense in the NHL is teams that generate it from their point men.
