With (Michael Del Zotto), I thought he was terrific last night. This is part of a huge step for Michael: Stay there now. This is where he’s fluctuated before.

“Stralsy, we went after hard last year and raised his level,” Tortorella added. “He has not done that right now and we’re still OK there. If we can just get him to play a little bit better…We need to stay with that until we get some other things fixed for us to get some consistency."
I don't mind Torts as coach and I don't think the team's issues are on him, but it DOES **** me off that Torts hasn't said a thing about effing Brad Richards yet. The dude is NOT a #1 C this season... he just isn't. Step clearly deserves to be in that spot and I believe he would thrive doing so.
