His refusal to trust young guys like Moore and MDZ, coupled with his allegiance to Richards, has really encapsulated the whole "throw **** at the wall" philosophy. Moore and MDZ was the best point-pairing we've seen all year, and we saw it for all of one game before Torts pulled the plug on it.

If we had even an average PP by playoff standards, we likely would have closed this series out without a game seven. Hell, a 15% conversion rate is pretty mediocre in the post season and that would have gotten us an extra two goals this series.

This is what you end up with when you try and inject huge talent into a team with a core of young players who the coach doesn't even trust completely. Expectation trumps growing pains.
