But many fans what they want, and want it NOW! Variables be damned.

You want to make an argument that Torts is too stubborn to change his style of play? Or that hes simply unable? Thats a legitimate conversation to have. One that will take more time to answer.

The fact that there are several players on the roster that just simply aren't very good is a very real problem as well.
The matter of the fact is that there are players on EVERY roster that aren't very good. They're 4th line players for a reason.

The thing is, were not playing to our strengths and were not using our players as best we can. That is a coaching problem. We do have some very good players here.

Hags-Stepan-Callahan
Zucc-Richards-Nash
Clowe-Brassard-Dorsett
Asham-Boyle-Powe

McDonagh-Girardi
Staal-Stralman
Del Zotto-Moore

Lundqvist

Those are some very good hockey players, and a very solid core. We should not be struggling to beat a bunch of mercenaries in the caps.
