The last time the Canucks hired an asshole coach from the Rangers it was disastrous. I am not looking forward to this. I have the same troubled feeling in the pit of my stomach that I had in 2011 when I realized the window of opportunity for the Cup had closed on this team. I desperately clung to the hope that I was wrong. I still have that hope now but the sick feeling is getting more powerful.

Hmm.. so I guess we traded coaches with the Rangers?

I'm kind of mixed with Torts. We all know his negatives, but he has some positives as he has Stanley Cup winning experience and he doesn't play favorites as he's willing to sit his star players. I wonder if he's going to bench the sedins and say that they play like girls. *LOL* Maybe he'll bench Edler too when he makes a bad play.

As far as Ballard and Booth are concerned, not sure they'll get any better under Torts. They might see more time in the press box if anything. :lol: But it's a change and a fresh start for everyone I guess. Hopefully Torts will get the most out of our team the next couple years, as our window of opportuinity is quickly closing (possibly pretty much closed already).

No problem Doc, shit eating grins are only a issue if you have a goatee.

I hear getting shit out of a goatee is next to imposable.

Is that why they call goatee-wearers "shit-heads"? :eh:

I mean I know everyone tells em to eat shit all the time

.... but they actually do it??

Funny!

Speaking of funny, here's what Lou had to say about this hiring...

Gotta keep this short, On my way to the ferry with a fairy himself.

If his media reigns are reeled in, it should work for a few years. Dont think for a moment that he will be here LT, but a different philosophy was needed. And, dont know if I'd consider him a recycled coach (ie Keenan).

I was listening to Sports Talk and they had some interesting tidbits. Russell had a guest on (Brad Zimmer?) and from what they could tell, the Torts hiring really has the finger prints of an Aquillini family decision rather than Gillis. Gillis would probably go with a Stevens/Ruff type and getting Torts is really out of character for him. They also suggested that cuz the Nucks didn't do well in the playoffs the last couple years, the Aquillinis basically said to Gillis: u had your chance, it's not working out, we're getting involved in this one. MG must not feel very good right now and is probably on thin ice. Take it for what it's worth.

They also brought up an interesting question. When AV called out Kesler a few times in the past, Kes got really defensive and fired back. It's going to be really interesting to see how Kesler reacts when Torts criticizes Kes.
