John Torterella (again)

Ok so by all means I think Torterella is a great coach. But he cannot coach here. He cant develop players. He the coach you get if you want to make a Stanley Cup run with an experienced team. I feel like besides scoring Staal or really any of our other players have grown that much since he came here. They all play scared on the ice (GILROY)! We need someone that could develop players. Like Rennney. I'm pretty sure he was the only coach ever to put a rookie call up with Jagr for one of his first games. If you make one bad move with torts your done. Idk wtf the reason was behind putting Grachev with Todd White only giving the kid 6:55 lets screw up his development even more.

If Dubinsky, Callahan and Anisimov keep playing like that, I'm fine with Tortorella.

He "developed" Tampa for 3 years and won the cup in his fourth. He didn't come in at the last minute and win the cup in his 1st year.

Dubinksy and Callahan are point-per-game players so far and they "aren't developing"? WTF?

This team is down 3 of its top 6 scorers from last year - one being their best offensive player and the other being their best defensive forward - and are in every game and @ .500. What are some of you expecting?

This is wild. We see Anisimov, Dubinsky, Callahan, and even Girardi continue to develop. I think this team has taken huge strides towards developing since torts got here.
