Coaches don't know the makeup of every team like they do the one they're currently coaching. I'm sure that when AV interviewed for the position, he explained his system, and Sather pitched it as "We have Richards and Nash, a plethora of young offensive talent waiting to break out, an elite goalie, and one of the top defensive groups in the league. We need you to come in and make the team more potent offensively."

Torts took the Rangers job initially in the same manner. The team was terrible in so many aspects during his first 80-ish games here. To expect AV to throw up his hands in the first 6 months of a 4 year contract and take it back to barebones defense is just crazy. I'm happy he spoke out and said what has seemingly been completely lost on Glen Sather.
