Just curious: are most of you Yankees fans? I feel like those who're clamoring over Torts are reflexively posturing about the coaching staff because it'd be exactly what fans of the Yankees would expect out of a New York team.
I'm a Mets fan. Torts needs to go. The powerplay has sucked for years. The transition game, breakouts, and puck possession time are all terrible. The team has struggled to score for years despite offensively talented players on the roster. None of the young defensemen have bloomed offensively despite several (Del Zotto, McDonagh, Stralman, and now Moore) having tools to do so. He's completely inflexible. He's gotten basically whatever he's asked for with this roster and they still aren't contending.
He has no idea how, when, or what adjustments to make. If something's going wrong his process is never at fault. It's always completely on the players. It may be the players' jobs to execute, but it's his job to get them to execute. His system appears to frustrate his own players as much as it does their opponents.
