Kukla's Korner Hockey

Afternoon Line- John Tortorella

“When you coach your own team, especially the way I feel about how you coach, I’m locked in on my team and what we’re doing. I don’t spend a lot of time on the other teams. I know what we’re going to face before we play them, but I’m not watching the league from the inside out.

“Here, I get to watch games and I’m learning about the league and its personnel. I get to listen to other coaches and other players. I get to see stories about other players … all this stuff I didn’t know.

“I want to coach again, and I hope this is going to help me understand the league even better.”

-John Tortorella, now an ESPN analyst.  Aaron Portzline of The Athletic has much more (paid) and other CBJ topics.
