It is really hard for some of these guys to go out and play with a completely different style every single night.

On top of that, his view of press conferences being an absolute joke, yelling at all of his players like an army sergeant and throwing them under the bus when they don't want to jump in front of every Chara slap shot. They have the best goaltender in the world, but feel the need to get in his way, accidentally deflect shots into an open man (who is usually in the slot with a wide open net).

I just tire of watching a slow, boring Rangers team.
Its far from crazy love.

Its about being around long enough to know:

1. this team's problems go far beyond coaching and...
2. perhaps most importantly, if you're complaining about Tortorella now - after an ECF run, a lockout shortened season with no training camp, and huge roster turnover, its quite evident you'll be complaining about the next coach in no time. So, best to just ride the rest of this season out.
