Player personnel problems are often that last thing to be admitted by a fanbase. They want, so badly, to believe that they have a solid team in place thats being held back by outside factors - most of the time, thats the coach. Tortorella is being scapegoated at this point. The misinformation on this board about a host of issues, particularly the system he wants this team to play, is appauling. Its astounding that some people can watch hockey for so long and form these conclusions.

You want to know why this team cant get out of nuetral? Its because their #1 center, 40 goal scorer wing from last season, and the entire bottom 6 are playing like **** this season.
