The problem with the condensed schedule is that games are so close, meaning you're going to want to save guys legs, which in turn means little to no bag skates as you'll probably want to work on more specific areas where your team is lacking. That and there's a quick turnaround with a game against the Isles on Friday. Actually, on second thought, they probably won't need much of their legs for that game.
Not sure about Torts but Julien typically eases up on the team when they're in the midst of a losing streak and rides them harder when they're doing well. My guess is he can do that due to all the leaders within the B's locker room from Chara on down to Thornton. Not sure if the Rags have the same dynamic and I get the sense that Torts is a little more batshit psycho than Julien, but just something I found interesting.
