I loved Torts. Loved his intensity, his fire, his passion. I cant say what the room was like because I was not in the room. However there was a streak of about 8 games during the season where Marian Gaborik had a break a way and didn't score. Torts system put Gabby in position to score but he couldn't get the job done. However Torts intensity is what grinded on every player and forced him to lose the room. When Torts was hired, everyone knew there would be a shelf life to this guy. That time came. Torts, you will be missed. You were not perfect, but you brought accountability to this team. Something that had been sorely lacking. You brought a conditioning level to this team that it never had.
Stole the words out of my mouth. Great post.
