Actually, Gomez, in the four games since Torts took over as Head Coach, has racked up 2 Goals and 3 Assists. 5 Total Points in 4 Games.

Obviously it's still very early into Tort's tenure, here. But that's not exactly Gomez taking a career dive.

And if you know anything about Gomez, he's thrived and excelled with this type of coach behind the bench.

And for the sake of balance and curiosity.....


Gomez in his last 20 Games ............6 Goals and 12 Assists.....18 Total Points

In his last 25 Games..........7 Goals and 15 Assists........22 Total Points.

So despite his horrendous season and his bout with terrible turnovers and giveaways, Gomez has been picking up his offensive production.

I think his plus/minus went down as well. But that would be nice for anyone on the Rangers. No one has a plus to minus ratio to be proud of.

No doubt. It's been a messy, ugly season for the plus-minus ratio.

There is no link to this conversation is there? I mean, not just reading it. I would love to watch that post practice interview. It figures. Everything Renney said, the Rangers website always provided fans with the video footage. I guess maybe the convo will show up on youtube one day.
Michael Obernauer. Seems like he takes it all with a good sense of humor. Here's how he reported the same incident:

Quote:
More to come between now and that matinee on Sunday that, oh yeah, will be Sean Avery's return to the Garden in a Blueshirt. Speaking of matinees, Tortorella had an interesting take: "I think the boys like afternoon games, because you don't have to wait around. That's the worst part about the game of hockey is you have your morning skate, you have meetings, it allows coaches to over-coach, you have all day long to talk about it. It's an instinctive game, and I think that's a great thing for coaches and players, because you get right at it."

Okay, but what about the Rangers' 0-5 record in afternoon games this season? "I don't give a damn about your stats," he said. "I'm not a big stat guy."

I know where he's coming from. Last week when my editors asked me why I filed a 3,000-word game story when we only had space for 600, I told them: Don't ask me, I'm not a big stat guy.

It's the short-handed goals. They are absolute killers for a team's +/- because they stack up minuses on a team's best players.

They're all getting a bit huffy - Dubi at BB+ commented about this, and then Jess followed up how Tortorella is like Sather, all smug acting like he knows better. They all seem to think they're apart of the story.

Haha

I don't think Tortorella is really smug, I think he just kind of likes being abrasive

I think he just resents stupid and obvious questions.

Yeah, I don't think Torts appreciates inane, or irrelevant questions. Reporters can either be more poignant with their questions, or be babies and cry about him in the media. I'm sure we all know what's going to happen.
