In terms of total Hits, the Rangers were the #1 hitting team in the Tortorella era. The last three years of AV, they went from 7th, to 15th, to 20th.


The combo of the leftover Torts methods and the AV run and gun was a good combo for the Rangers.










Until the Tortorella good backgrounding was left to erode, while the sloppiness of the Vigneault rudderless ship caught up to them.

Exactly.
They went from Psycho Torts "up your ass" to "where is AV?' which eventually turned into "where's the D?"

You rack up hits when the other team has the puck. Which was another hallmark of the Torts-era strategy, give up puck possession but keep them to the outside and let Hank bail you out when you can't block the shot.

This is not to say that teams that DON'T hit always HAVE the puck - the opposite is not true - but looking at hits can be misleading.

Say what you want about the efficacy of the Blue Collar Blueshirts, but they executed to their game plan, which is more than I can say for most AV teams.

Yep - you had enough players that still had defensive discipline, while some of your talent guys had their leashes loosened to be able to open up the game a bit. That's all we ever asked for in the Torts era, and one of the reasons that he wore out his welcome IMO - he could not adjust his game plan to allow for more scoring, when he eventually gained more offensive talent on his teams. He could only coach one way and that inflexibility led to his demise.
