I swear all you could hear was it clicked against his teeth when he was trying to talk. More than once I wanted to call in and have someone suggest he take the frigging thing out of his mouth to do interviews.
With Torts I wonder if we would no longer get live interview. All that bleeping.
Hearing that through the grapevine word has leaked out that Tippet wants to stay with the team no matter where it is but that a new contract will depend upon who owns the team. He'll get a new contract he just doesn't know from whom yet but word has filtered down that his preference, much like Doan, is to stay with the club so I think he is almost out of the running. Not sure based upon this if the Canucks will wait much longer.

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

Because a single Cup victory have often caused GMs and fans to believe that a Cup winning coach is a good coach. Tortorella's teams have lost in the first round or missed the playoffs 7 out of 10 seasons. That's a terrible playoff record for a coach. If having ONE Cup win is all that matters, guys like Keenan and Crawford should be frontrunners for NHL coaching positions.
