sums it up pretty well... hes a great hockey player but lately it seems like hes trying to hard to make things happen. IMO I really dont think torts is the right coach for rookies, comes off kinda hard all the time but maybe that's what they need. I'm sure he'll be back up by the end of the month. Also they might be show casing McDonagh for a trade.
