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
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.
