I'm all for using a time out to shake up the team at any point in a game because a team will do that MAYBE 3 or 4 times a year. Torts treats timeouts like he has more than 1.....
Can you see using it in the first period to set a tone for the rest of the game? Every period matters, every goal matters, every defensive zone draw matters. There's no waste when the alternative is getting scored on.
