Yep, that style sure worked out for Mike Keenan (who's in Russia right btw).
So, this "strong message" that you feel that it's important to send to a group of adults. Shape up or I'm going to punish you like I did to Luo?
Yep, ruling by fear always works right?
Fear me or suffer the consequences?
FUCK YOU AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON. (not you Strange. Just in general)
This ain't the army. This is a hockey team. And even if it WERE the army. Trying to control ANYONE through fear tactics is an idiot's way of leading.
And it's not like the team needed MORE bullshit to deal with.
Take your blinders off man. We are having the worst season imaginable. Not one player is having a good season. TBK wants to trade the whole team away. RD is gaining divine powers!! THE WHOLE WORLD HAS GONE NUTS!!
Luo may be a bit of a prima donna but he's also damn good too. Torts fucked our team by pissing on Luo (rightly or wrongly, it doesn't really matter) and ultimately getting Luo traded away in the middle of one of our most fucked up seasons ever.
Let's just pretend that the Canucks still want to make the playoffs. Who gives you the better chance to do so? Luo or Matthias and Markstrom?
Tort's ego shouldn't be bigger than the team. But it is right now.
LOL who are you even talking to.
All I said is that at the beginning of the season Torts warned the team to be careful about their tweets.
All I said was that Lou's last tweet as a Canuck was exactly the kind of tweet Torts warned them about.
All I said is that perhaps that tweet was enough to push Torts into choosing his red-hot rookie.
BTW, it IS possible to be "tough but fair" I hope you know.
Torts isn't Hitler... or worse... Keenan.
So Torts isn't allowed to bench a player for any reason whatsoever??
Or is it just the almighty Lou he can't bench?
We don't know how the conversation went when Torts told Lou he wasn't playing in the HT.
All we know is that Lou whined to the media like a little bitch.
Thank God that drama queen is the fuck outta here!
Speaking of :drama queens" there Mathonwy....
