We weren't pregressing as an organization with Torts as the HC.

The Conference Finals were nice, a nice illusion.

The continous capitulation in all three zones is and was disgusting.

The lack of a competent breakout,

The lack of any noticable organized offensive attack,

the lack of a half way decently funcuntioning Power Play

Accountability that showed up on the time sheets for most of the younger guys.

I can appreciate a coach being hard on players. I get that it is their jobs to get the best out of the group he has, but I also get that the flip side to that is in CONJUNCTION to the harsh critiques, there has GOT to be an equal amount of praise.

It serves no one any good when all you hear out of a coach is negativity. That goes for all walks of life. Any boss that does nothing but criticize his staff will not be a boss long.

The comments after the Buffalo game. Did he really need to chose the tone and the words to get his message across that he wasn't happy?

They had just won 4 of the 5 previous games and thats how you go about voicing your feelings? And to do it in a public forum like that?

He's an old school coach playing in a modern era. As long as he continues to be and coach the way he is and does, his shelf life will get shorter and shorter at each new stop much like Keenan.
