The Pressure Is Now On Tortorella

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

The Rangers most surely got more than a bucket full of pucks for Gaborik, even if he’s one of the rare players around the NHL who can score by the bucketful. They got three relatively young ones — with Brassard a talented center, Moore an exceptional skater on the blue line, and Dorsett a tough pugilist — who could be here for a while.

The Blueshirts entered this season dramatically remade, more top-heavy, more talent-driven. Perhaps it is because Tortorella was deprived of a training camp during which to instill his values, but the coach was not able to get that group to respond.

Now, the Rangers have changed the group and the dynamic. It is on Tortorella to make it work and to direct this orchestra so it makes music to the Garden’s ears.
