Minus the obvious hyperbole, of course they did. He's their coach. A lot of athletes do it. Whether or not they like John is a different debate but they aren't unique in their defense of him.



Because they actually play for the New York Rangers? Is this part serious???



Based on what? He had a pretty strong season last year playing the same system. It's not Torts' fault that Richards is infatuated with mindless behind the back drop passes. It's not Torts fault that Richards looks terribly out of shape.



He's actually projected to have a 13 goal season which is just under his usual average. Dump and chase did work for Artem. He played well in his time with us. The kid was just a streaky player.


Not everyone but this might be the only solid point you make throughout this rant.




My Pyschologist just broke me down again.. just 2 things..
you want to compare compassionate, smart, intelligent hockey coaches like ( Scotty Bowman and Mike Babcock and Barry Trotz ) to Torts?????..

AND?? You forgot to comment on the best part, Penguins games back to back??? NO COMMENT???
