Using Torts as a scapegoat is lazy and childish. I'll say that the 2nd goal is on him for putting Richards out there for a PK faceoff in the defensive zone, but It's a god damn insult to all of logic to hail our players as heroes when they win and blame it all on Torts when the lose.
Put a little more effort into the analysis people. Every loss can't be on Torts, every win isn't "in spite" of him.
Once again, fast forward spares me from wasting more than a half hour with this half-ass, half-effort, 50% team. Torts may suck as a coach, but he isn't on the ice.
Buy out Richards, aka Gomez, Drury, Redden. Same crap. Zucc - by far the most creative, visionary, pound-for-pound, best player.
I'v read this from several posters, that Zucc,Brassard and Stepan, was the only forwards trying. How come Zucc get's 16 biggest looser votes then?
The postgame comments from Torts was shorter than the add.
This poll is a disaster. Seems like the differnence was Mason, and that chances were produced? Still in play off spot and an surmountaibale schedule left. No need to get buried just yet? If Dorsett is ready for play offs and Hank can get a rest this will most likely end up with a cup.
As others have probably stated it looks like last season's success was an anomaly. This team, with all it's talent, should be fighting for 1st not 8th. I have to think it has something to do with the leadership and system (i.e. Torts).
Anyway, last night was an abomination to the Hockey Gods. I hate losing to the flyers.
only game of the season that i couldn't finish. went to bed after the second. flat out embarrassment. game was over at the first faceoff... also wtf is asham doing fighting there? we were in the game... gg lundqvist. first 2 goals were freebies. about time they gave you a night off
I was at the game... horrible. Once again we 'dominate in shots' which means nothing. It seemed as though the Flyers had all the better chances. Yes, Mason made some great saves, but that is no excuse to play so poorly with the playoffs on the line to a team that is out.
Torts has to go. Nash is already slowly turning into Gaborik with this system. Every once in a while he goes against the grain and tries to make a play himself, which usually sparks the team. If he doesn't, the team is flat.
Richards should be bought out in the off-season. I don't care what he did last year. With him on the team taking that cap hit, this team has zero chance at winning a cup. Sign a 2C in the off season and we will have two 2C's with Stepan and a very good 3C in Brassard.
