For better or worse, it came down to Hank or Tortorella. You go with Hank, every time.



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.
Yes, he cares about his stats and his Vezina. That **** directly correlates to how much he gets paid, how well he's liked he is by the fanbase, and it determines his legacy. Those stats might just get him into the hall of fame one day.

It's not Torts fault that the team isn't loaded with offensive superstars. Derek Stepan isn't going to magically turn into Sidney Crosby now that Torts is gone.
