Do you guys think Torts' job is on the line if they don't win tonight?
No - if there was an adequate replacement, I'd be in favor. But I'd rather just play out the season, see what happens when the injured players come back (I'm not optimistic), and look for a change in the off-season. I don't want a retread such as Ruff.
It's more so that he's been one of the only players on this team this year with a pulse. Hagelin, Nash, Halpern. Only forwards worth a damn so far this season. Callahan/Stepan have been OK. The rest can burn in hell.
That list of guys with a pulse gets ever shorter. I think we're down to like 6, 5 if you count injuries.
The sad part is that we looked pretty good in the first to just blow it away like in the last game. I think its turning around in a positive direction. We just need our real NHL defenseman to come back.
That's so sad though because this team was tearing it up last year I really thought we were on to something. This season we were hailed to be top cup contenders and we're barely in a playoff spot. This is sickening right now and it keeps getting worse.
