Everyone just dry off.

Torts will not be our coach. If that goofy little hamsterfaced smugfuck is our coach this season I will personally drive CFP to the ferry.

Time will tell.

The Rangers boast a few more power forwards in their top 9 than the Canucks did. There are certainly some net driving and crashing skaters suiting up for the Rags. If the Rangers become a possession/cycle team that limits the net presence to one guy and the other guys coming in way late for rebounds......well that will tell us if it was Vigneault's gameplan that was playing such inept, and soft, perimeter hockey, or if it was the players themselves.

We will see I suppose.

All the areas where this team needs improvement are the areas where Torts is weakest.

Power play, breakouts, offensive forecheck, GOAL-SCORING... what the hell man.

Even more surprising is that is happened in NY, because Glen Sather has allows been known for doing his due diligence and handing out contracts that make sense.

Ira Kaufman ‏@IKaufmanTBO 5h
John Tortorella is reportedly in talks with the Canucks about becoming their next coach. Brace yourself, B.C. media, for the coming storm

Tampa Bay scribe... although not sure if he is merely referring to the 2nd interview. A lot of smoke though.

Bringing in Torterella is a boom or bust hiring similar to bringing in Keenan. You hope he can push the team that 5% more it needs without having the entire thing implode.

imo bringing in Stevens would indicate Gillis isint really worried about the "window" closing.

I would be surprised if it was anyone else.

Tortorella's playoff record stinks pretty bad if you take away the Cup win.

Stevens is going to be a guy that everyone likes and can be one of those guys who stays on for a long time. I'm just worried about his ability to coach and motivate the team.

If you take away the cup win ? Why should that be taken away ?

Blobby, how long do you give Torts, if he is hired, until he gets fired from here? I give it 1.5 seasons.

No idea, not even sure if i want to see him here. I was just questioning why his cup win should be taken out of the equation.

LOL

AV's playoff record smells like roses if you add a cup win.

LOL
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

You know Tortorella stayed with the Rangers for what, five seasons.. with the Lightning for seven I think?

Obviously he's a bit of a clown in front of the cameras and I don't think that would jive with the franchise, and there are other things on his resume that are a cause for concern... but for a coach to have two NHL jobs averaging six years per, that doesn't really support the short shelf life, high risk, etc narrative most people have been projecting onto him.

Torts is like the new Keenan, of that lunatic variety but manages a shelf life that is a hair bit longer than Keenans, the same head games with the media and players.

To be honest, I kind of like Torts cause he's not right in the head. Everyone thought he would have been a great hockey analyst when he went to TSN was it? Fuck was he awful. He may be kind of entertaining.
