With that said, Torts is not the guy who rebuilt a roster by virtually ignoring the bottom 6. Perhaps more importantly, Richards and Gaborik, who played pretty damn well in the same system last season have stunk beyond belief.

Theres so much blame to go around. Those calling for Torts' head would simply get a new name, but a lot more would need to change to get different results.
Sure, he is a great motivator.

But there is no denying that we played like **** most of last season and relied on Hank. We got a dream match-up in the PO's playing the 8th, 7th and 6th seed, and looked like sheit and relied on Hank.
