It is hard to come to any other conclusion than the one called "Fire Torts & Sully"

We will get Marty to coach and have Talbot backing up.

It is an unfortunate conclusion to say Torts is killing confidence, creativity and our individual's ability to execute but the players are being affected by too many aspects of Torts style to be offensively and creatively unrestrained when they need to be. Furthermore, great team offense involves many secondary scorers and Torts does not foster any of that. ZIP. That's on Torts. Furtherfurthermore, a great offensive is not all to the players credit, it's also the coach's credit because its their job to coach the offense out of the lines/players. Torts is a minus 1 there too.
Torts isn't the issue, our depth sucks!! and if this team has Gabs and Richards scoring we wouldnt be even discussing our depth concern.. since our big 2 arent playing well and contributing the way they should it exposes the rest of our team bc they arent bringing **** to the table..

main issue Gabs and Richards not scoring= Exposing our bottom 6 for not doing anything
plain and simple.. the same guys night in and night out have been competing and doing what they should.. ala nash, callahan, hags, step so they're elevating their games..thats players stepping up.. its up to the rest of the team to step up..

but thats why we need guys with high compete levels and those guys usually are physical and hustle.. that = puck possession and turns into chances.. its important to have guys like prust and dubi.. guys willing to do whatever to help the team.. i just dont see that with powe, halpern (gone now), asham, pyatt.. and we cant count on rookies to contribute enough to carry the team.. i think slats overestimated kreider stepping up this year and replacing dubi and that hasnt worked.. it left us vulnerable. best thing to do is trade deadline and off season start poaching players to rebuild bottom 6..

and 3rd line d sucks.. and exposes us badly..
