I don't think there are enough guys on the roster this year that are doing that, or are good enough to do it.
I strongly believe in Torts, and the guy is, for all his outlandish outbursts, a very smart coach. I hope he has the pulse of his team, and the malcontents are in the minority or moved away, otherwise it will either be him or the team. This reminds me of the Dave Tippet in Dallas, but except Rangers brass have been stable for a while.
Look at what Rangerboy posted about that longtime scout saying what we've been saying about Torts this season.
The guy is too stubborn, every one in Hockey can see it.
