It amazes me Lundsanity how stubbornly you defend Gaborik yet trash Torts like its your job. You want Gaborik here till he's 40 an Torts gone tomorrow.
Fact is, Gaborik scored 40 goals 3 years ago and 40 goals last year under the Torts system. This year, same system, Gaborik (and Richards for that matter) are underachieving. It's not Torts, it's them. In the playoffs last year, we had an injured and ineffective Gaborik and still made it to the ECF under the Torts system. I don't understand your logic.
If you take 2 of the top 3 guys on any team and have them underachieve, the team won't do well. That's not all on the coach. Give Torts a break, the players play the game, he's not in the battle.
Torts won a cup, along with Richards. They deserve more respect than what they get on this board.
