Now all of a sudden we have a team that can't even remotely move the puck at the same level of say the Islanders and everything is just a mess -- and we should appologise to Torts???

I don't quite follow to be honest.

Agreed. We need to play better. We are over 1/10 into the season, time is flying by. There are "excuses" for AV, but not to be one of the worst teams in the league. We need to play better and with more effort.

But undoubtedly, the guy before him left a helluva mess behind him. One have witnessed alot at this place, but to argue that Torts has done a good job here in NY in light of how horrible the team looks that he left behind is up there for sure...
