On one hand I can respect his ability to adhere to his views, and on the other hand, this same quality/deficit, can be maddening. i.e., justification for not playing Kassian on the first or second line, but then failing to acknowledge that your top line players didn't score for nearly two fuckin months! Sorry Torts, your justification really doesn't work (at least not for me).
Anyways, that's just one point of view.
For the sake of starting fresh, it just seems to make sense for Linden to really start totally anew (Tortless).
Anybody have a take on why a decision on Torts hasn't been made by Linden. Do you think Linden is using Torts' as some sort of "Litmus Test" when it comes to screening a potential GM?
i.e. Do you envision a scenario where Torts could remain Coach?
If it was me, the "Tort's Test" would be, if you think Torts could or should remain the Canucks' Head Coach, you're crossed off the list as a candidate for GM!
re: http://blogs.theprovince.com/2014/04/08 ... e-canucks/“I love (Tortorella),” said Feaster. “I really do think he’s a great coach. I would relish the opportunity to work with Torts again. I consider him a friend.”
Well that's the first good news I've read about the Canucks since Linden was announced as President.....Feaster is off the list.
