I'm sorry but my opinion of Torts has changed. Brian Boyle on the 3rd line are you kidding me! The only reason he isn't the joke around the league as the biggest bust from the 2003 draft is because we drafted Jessiman. Don't gimme how he has size, he doesn't use it, he's not tough, he doesn't hit, he belongs in Hartford. Gee Torts you had Brashear with Drury and Callahan why not try that one again I'm sorry for letting some anger out here but when i read stuff like this it makes me wonder why I think Torts is a good coach.
You shouldn't have such a knee jerk reaction about this; Tortarella has done this with Brashear a handful of times, and only once he's stayed on the 3rd line longer than the first shift or two of the game.
I like that he tries to reward solid play with extra minutes to the 4th liners at this point; why the hell not considering how our 2nd and 3rd lines are playing?
