first of all, the overall team defense has improved. next, its only the first day, and im sure Oren has something coming still. Its hard to be patient, when theres so much being done by the bolts already, but i trust him to get the job done

Lord help Lightning fans if they do actually sign a defenceman, cause it will be the wrong guy, for too much money, too long a contract..the boards will crash, the hockey universe will come to a screeching halt and it will all be Tampa's fault...and hockey doesn't belong there anyway, who do they think they are?
Too true. I only had to skim through this thread to see that 90% of the post are retarded/jealous/saying the same thing. Like this one:

Is that really something you want to share with people?

Finally, Torts is gone. His system resulted in a ton of break aways and odd man rushes that hung goalies out.
I'm glad he's gone too, but Melrose is supposedly going to use a run and gun type style. That results in the same thing.
You can't have a team taking offense taking risks consistently without a killer goalie. Based on their current roster, they're expecting them to be talented enough to get away with it more often than not.
Pure run and gun tends to results in too many players clustered towards the far blue line and when they lose the puck behind them...
