“I like a lot of the stuff that he [Torts] says, but the tone that he says it in makes it sound like everyone else is… stupid! ... and that just an… in a business in Montreal… Canada… sss… we’re all media, we love our hockey game… we’re all… we all give opinions. We might be right, we might be wrong, but all try and… go in the same direction…. we don’t… it’s just… it’s tone…. (searches for the right words)...”
Healy comes to his rescue:
“You’re paid for an opinion.”
“You’re paid for an opinion…”
(turns and looks directly at Friedman, causing Weekes to h'yuk like a hillbilly for some reason)
“… not to be candy striper at the hospital.”
(MacLean and Weekes chuckle for a second and then stop with confused looks on their faces)
“I don’t get what that means.” (for starters, candy stripers don't get paid...)
Elliotte, I believe it means you're like a volunteer assistant nurse at the psyche ward and it's not funny.
(get away from CBC before you catch their disease)
PJ, you are stupid and you should thank people like Torts and yours truly for pointing it out.
Glen, as bizarre as it sounds, you come off as stupider than PJ (at least PJ doesn't try to sound smart).
Kevin, I'm starting to believe you really did follow a mugger to a better mugging spot.
Ron, I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt and conclude that at times you merely act stupid.
UPDATE: Last night ole PJ tried his feeble best to put all the blame for last night's shenanigans on Torts.

A couple of years ago I read mention of PJ replacing Coach's Corner when Don is done. Seems PJ heard it as well and is doing his best at becoming a senile old man.
And then there's the clownish suits and the raspy voice...

On PJ, well he blasted the Sabres for having Scott and the other 4th liners out against the Leafs Kessel line. Blamed the Sabres for gooning it up and called for suspensions there. He then blamed Carlyle for responding by putting the Kessel line out there. Said he never should have put his skilled players out there to risk injury and that Carlyle should have had his goons out in response. He then applauded Kessel's hack job saying he had a right to defend himself. He took the exact opposite view in this game tonight. Hartley could start whoever he wanted and it was up to Torts to respond by having his best players on the ice. The guy is a complete joke.
Yup, a complete joke with a major hate-on for John Tortorella.
CBC now hangs on to Sportsnet's coat tails for national NHL broadcasts (beginning next season). CBC will host HNIC, while Sportsnet allows it. Sportsnet has the NHL national broadcast rights for Canada. TSN ... no longer a factor in Canadian national broadcasts for the NHL these days.
