players are getting tired of Torts' system. I don't undestand how you can be that bat **** stupid. Against Philly, yes, you can out grind them, out work them, out play them along the boards and win chases but against the Sens, you can't.
Someone needs to ask Tortorella, "Why do you keep doing dump and chase against teams that you know will be able to beat your team to the puck 2/3 times?"

Its been a big problem this game. Cally is not acting like a leader.
I never wanted to say this here because its very controversial. but I truly never thought Ryan Callahan had what it takes to be CAPTAIN of the team.
I guess growing up with Messier truly spoiled me. But I am really sick of his vanilla boxed answers after every game, and rarely showing fire.
He has lots of heart, and soul...but there are certain times you need to show some fire, and he rarely shows that. He's too nice of a guy.
I know in the locker room, things could be different, but I can tell the type of dude he is, and while im sure he has a temper, I don't think he has the effect on all the other players that a guy like Messier had.
