John Tortorella plays against the Sens every ****ing game and fail to use his head. Stupidity and insanity is when you don't ****ing change things knowing the outcome. They've played the same mentally challenged game against the Sens for hours and hours now and yet Torts goes in with the same useless **** "Let's play hard" ********. They don't have that good of players but the system aces ours. Wake up Torts. You're not getting fired but that's worst than bring a team down to **** with you.
To be fair, Torts has made some adjustments. Our wings have been much better covering the lanes to their points. Our Dmen have been a lot more careful with the puck along the boards.
He has at least learned that you can't let Ottawa's point men have the puck.
Pretty much the major reason the Rangers are losing this game is that we aren't beating them physically along the wall. We have been too soft on the puck and showing no intensity.
But, Torts game plan is fairly sound; especially with MacLean trapping everything.
They skate opponents into the ground. The only way to beat them is to keep them bottled up in their zone and beat them up physically. The Rangers don't do that to anyone. The Rangers wait to block shots and counter. That doesn't work against a team like Ottawa that can outskate the Rangers to loose pucks and can outskate the Rangers looking to counterattack.
i dunno man. i see a bunch of 19-22 year old kids in that lineup who are going to develop nto very good players under one of the best coaches in the league. i see a lot of raw talent and potential up and down that lineup.
