We are in year 9 of our rebuild. We have assets to be a contender. I was certainly not always that impressed with how we played last season, but Hank was fantastic.
we never rebuilt or were consider rebuilders.. we just brought in guys on slats staff (gordie and gorton) to actually start drafting better and establishing homegrown players..
No NY team will ever rebuild, it's not allowed!! haha
.. after lockout we signed Nylander, straka, jagr was back and we brought in guys like rosi malik etc... we never had young guys in our lineup outside of Prucha dawes and hank right after the lockout.. then Girardi came, callahan was on the scene for a few games.. then we saw staal etc...
all our young talent came in bits and pieces and now we are the team we envisioned back then.. young core of guys... we never were in a rebuild..
but back to torts the guy has really developed and pushed a lot of guys in org since hes been here..
guy turned stralman boyle, prust, mitchell into great effective and serviceable players..
developed and pushed Stepan, hags, callahan, staal, girardi mcd sauer into top players
great coach and we are deff a better organization from top to bottom post 04-05 lockout.. we went from a joke org to a good one..
