Because I saw what the team played like in game 4 against the Bruins before the fluke goal. They looked like a team completely unresponsive to the man behind the bench. Most of us have seen coaches who have lost teams. Most of that game was exactly what it looks like. So, while rumors of the team quitting on Tortorella may be unsubstantiated, it's pretty easy to believe from observation.
Eh, I dont know. When Renney's 08-09 team lost 10-2 - thats losing a team. It didnt get to that point with Tortorella. They have a solid, but not spectacular, effort most nights.

While I constantly harp on the opinion that I dont think this roster is championship caliber, I do like a few pieces.

I absolutely hated that 08-09 team.
