The truth is someone in the middle, but I think Tortorella's perception of the roster trumped Sather's when it comes to reality.
Torts had one of the best goaltenders in the world. He had a solid top 4 even with Staal out of the lineup. If our offensive skill was lacking, wouldn't it make more sense to implement a system that helps us offensively? Why play to enhance our strength at the expense of our weakness? How much offense are we going to generate when we always have to go 200 feet?
