I think that Torts burnt this team out early this season. He aproached the shortened training camp & early season like it was September & October. The practices were too much for some of these guys who hadn't done much of anything since last spring, especially Gabs who had just started getting back into the swing of things when the lockout ended.

Torts had mentioned on behind the bench that Cally & Richards came to him after 3-4 weeks in to the season & asked him to back off on practices & that they needed more rest. In which he replied that he was annoyed that they were complaining about being tired so early in the season. Too me that is a coach who 100% mis-read his team & that misread so early in a shortened season has had a long lasting effect on the team.
