It is not a personnel issue with this team (though we can always use an upgrade in many spots, who doesn't?). It is Torts, Sullivan, and Co.
Gaborik has scored 40 goals twice under Tortorella. Richards had a productive offensive season last year.
Last season, the Rangers were 11th in GPG. This year, they're 28th in GPG. Gaborik and Richards are on pace for 40 points over an 82 game schedule apiece. Tortorella has not had a great year, coaching wise - that, I think, we can all agree on. That said, the blame shouldn't be place solely on him. Gaborik and Richards underperforming, and Sather failing to replace the depth that was lost this offseason are two HUGE reasons for this team's lack of success.
