08:15 AM ET 10.24 | Coaches aren't real fond of excessive downtime, which gives players all manner of ways to let their games slip, and John Tortorella is no different. "To be quite honest, it worries me," Tortorella said. "When our guys report to camp in September under normal circumstances, they have a physical and mental edge from preparing for our testing that's extremely important to the way we go about our business as a hockey club. There's a mindset from this group, a mindset from the New York Rangers that defines us and factors into everything we do," he said. "And I know the guys are trying their best to stay at it, but it worries me that they've lost that mindset. We're going to have to address that as a group because we've come too far."

Probably have to start with the basics once lock out is over, like "This is a hockey puck, this is a hockey stick, this is ice"......whenever that occurs........

There's a mindset from this group, a mindset from the New York Rangers that defines us


Don't worry coach...it won't take you long to once again zap their enjoyment of the game and have them blocking shots all night!

Yeah....but there's a major shortage since Avery left.

I guess that Torts can be another one that thinks that the ice follies in Europe are a waste of time and only serve as a paid vacation for some...and unemployment for others.
