I don't think anyone who is balanced is saying that... Torts is one of the issues with this team, but the players shoulder the burden of why we look so anemic most nights.

To say that Tortorella's coaching style, system, and decision making is impacting this team negatively is simply turning a blind eye.

we play a system that requires extreme discipline, and athleticism in order to be successful, not to mention a defensive system that runs the risk of losing any player to a substantial injury any game...

His constant yelling and ripping players can only go on for so long...

No reason why the lines constantly change. I can't remember a coach in the last 20 yrs who changed the lines as much as he does, creating the most asinine pairings i've ever witnessed...

Refuses to coach a PP, relies far too much on instinctual play from his team, which leads me to believe they rarely work on improving actual gameplay. They do the same things game in, game out...
