The biggest issue I had with Torts last night was putting Stepan in the faceoff circle three consecutive times in the last minute. Everyone knows he's not great at faceoffs, but it's unacceptable for him to lose two and then throw him out for a third in the last minute. Boyle or Richards should have been in the dot. Hell Callahan would have been a better option.
MDZ has not been better than McD this year. He is not capable of being better than Ryan. He has probably outpaced expectations while McD has seemed to underperform in Torts' eyes. But McD is a much better player and last night was no exception.
