Glen Gulutzan is a strong candidate to be an assistant coach to John Tortorella with the Canucks.

Are those extra two letters that big a deal Todd?

A teacher would never do that BTW. Even these days.


I know. I wouldn't write like that in school. Only informal stuff like msg boards, facebooking, texting and computer geek stuff. :P

Reading this blurb, I would say that Tortorella >>>>> Keenan...

As you said, you worked with John Tortorella. Tell us how you remember that era.
Even though he’s a hockey man through-and-through and a true professional, for him family always comes first. He was always telling us that while we should regard the game, the team as very important it must not be at the expense of our families. There was one occasion, just after my wife had given birth, and I was spending a lot of time with her, helping her, and this time I overslept. It was during the play-offs and we were to meet at six, and I woke up at 5:55. I jumped up, got dressed in a couple of seconds and hurried off to the arena. I was still late, but when I walked in John just asked me how things were with my wife and child

That's cool. I wonder what Tort's take on Luongo's family situation is.

Torts is one of the better spazzers in the NHL coaching family. I'm sort of looking forward to seeing it.

Let's do an over\under on how long it takes to hear a PBP guy say

"....and Torterella is LOSING it behind the Vancouver bench!"

I'm going with under 5 games. :lol:

Seriously though, the guy is gonna snap when he sees how this team is officiated in the playoffs.

So true, which might actually be a good thing. AV's mantra always was to "play the game the right way" and things will work out. Well, the NHL ain't exactly the best run organization, and we know the squeeky wheel gets the grease more often than not. Torts won't have a problem taking a fine for publicly lambasting an official if he thinks it will help his team.

SO looking forward to that first snap! :thumbs:

AV was such a nice guy!

Sickeningly nice. :evil:

Torts is like Crawford with balls + wit.

Still can't believe Gillis hired this guy, he pretty much goes against the entire philosophy Mikey's been preaching since day 1.

That said, I'm kinda glad he did, because this is gonna be hilarious!

Strap yourself in kids.

BTW, if this really is a "kinder, gentler" Torts... lame.

@benkuzma

What we learned today:

Don't ask Torts about other team, his line-up, the division, conference or himself.

Other than that, it's wide open.

I'd have to hear the questions and answers but that sounds pretty silly.

And just when Torts was inspiring me to be a kinder, gentler Rumsfeld.

Guess he's trying to rally the troops with an "us against the world" kinda vibe.

if only that actually worked in pro sports...
