I'm not even sure if the "system" is the issue or whatnot, but implementing a new system takes time and patience. And I don't think a lockout-shortened season with no training camp is an ideal time to start trying it out. Any system under Torts, whether it be the current one or one that opens up the system, is going to rely heavily on conditioning - something that many players are lacking as of right now.

When we transitioned from Renney to Torts, it took over a year for the Rangers to fully adjust. It wasn't until the 2010-11 season, a year and a half after Torts was hired, that the Rangers were able to execute the system successfully. These things take time.

This dump and chase system just doesn't give this team enough scoring chances. Either Torts needs to change his style or leave. They're not going to win a cup like this.

Let's not all blame Torts, this team is painfully overrated by the media.

Who on this team besides Nash is a real good puck carrier?

The answer is no one.

Honestly, I think that the spate of injuries may serve to actually buy him time. I am not a Torts fan and never have been, but it's pretty hard to fire a guy who's soon to be fielding a team missing 3 of its top 4 defenseman (and best players), its best forward and two key depth guys. (And that's not counting Sauer!)

After tonight I am 100% in favor of firing Torts. He has to go. What a soft team

Who do people want instead of him? All I hear is talk about how he's a clown and has to go. Who should come and why?

Well it's not my job to go looking for another head coach. That's Sather's.

By that logic, it's not your job to say when a coach should be fired either.

The blathering going on in every thread adds nothing to any conversation. If we're going to talk about firing Torts every second, why not discuss it in further detail than the tired old crap thats getting thrown around?

I think your post is off base. How would you know if they have tuned him out?
Yelling and screaming? Are you there?

No, but fans could say "I want this guy gone because of X, Y, and Z reasons." That makes perfect sense. If those reasons make sense, that means Sather should see it, and if he does, he should let him go. We're just speaking the truth as to why we don't like Tortorella.
