It also may lend credence to the report by Hockey Night in Canada’s Elliotte Friedman that goalie Henrik Lundqvist‘s noncommittal response to a question about re-signing in New York was a factor in Tortorella’s firing.


Heh, Sean Avery, you little shit, still an NHL fucktard after retiring.

No wonder AV told the Stars he was no longer interested in entertaining that opening!

Been reported that Dallas had the same offer, guess AV wanted to be far away from his old team...and Fiddler.

Happy for AV that he got that big deal. Doesn't mean he will last 5 years but he at least has a contract for 5 years. Good on him.

Like omg Mondi, you're BOTH!! :crazy:

:mrgreen:

It seems unreal to me that Gillis gives Torts two interviews.

Either Gillis is gutsier than I thought... or Aquaman is pressuring him.

Personally I'm going with the latter for the time being....

He needed a goalie.

Lundqvist has put up better numbers than Lehtonen in his career.

Hiring Tortorella would certainly be more of a “bold move” than going with Stevens.

Yep.

Anyone hear anything about Boucher's chances?

I was reading another commenter talking about Gaborik demanding a trade, he was presuming it was due to Torts (and from his treatment in 24/7 that's not surprising).

What's really odd is Gabby getting traded for perhaps less than Sather would have gotten in the off-season, but Sather firing the coach that was the problem a few months after the trade :shock:

Which again leads me to give Torts the benefit of the doubt for the results he got with a shitty (or at least over-rated) team working under the worst GM in the league.
There may be some members of the Vancouver Sports Media who want out, but that would be a welcomed change.

This is the biggest upside for me. I'd love to see how long Gallagher lasts with his little unsubstantiated snipes and armchair coaching in the paper.

If that's happening 2-3 years from now, you have an issue, and this is where Torts' shelf life comes into question. If that's happening 2-3 weeks into the season, I don't want that player on the Canuck roster.

Only with respect you and your posts SL, and only because you're insatiably rude. :shock: :D :mrgreen:

Not just Tony G - I would love to hear him rip Botchford, Sekeres, Price, and McDonald a new one...

Throw Willis and McIntyer (sp?) into the mix too....

Can we get this thread back on the topic of coaches being canned.

There have been complaints.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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