It's easy for us to say that these guys are being paid millions of dollars so they should just perform and STFU. Unfortunately, that just doesn't work in the real world for a myriad of reasons.
It's Gabby's job to skate and score goals - that's why they signed him. They didn't sign him because of his spectacular two-way prowess.
It's Tort's job to motivate and get the best from all his players. By that definition, he's falling down on the job just as badly.
If it were just a matter of enforcing a simple code of discipline, then any given hardass could lead his team to a Stanley Cup.
I prefer Jimmy's approach. I can see the wisdom in it, and I can see the results.
