Do you honestly think that Lundqvist cares about his stats? The guy wants to win, and if he doesn't think Tortorella can do that, well, I agree with him. He's probably frustrated at the lack of offense more than anything, and I suppose he believes that Tortorella is the reason for that.
For better or worse, it came down to Hank or Tortorella. You go with Hank, every time.
He better hope the Rangers don't bring in a guy that tries to play like the Tampa Bay Lightning because his stats will go down the ******* if that's the case.
Tampa has had a joke of a defense and a joke of a goaltending duo every year he was there but one — and in that season, Tampa Bay got to game 7 of Round 3.
SEEN YOUR VIDEO!
