Attention Vancouver, It’s Not Tortorella’s Fault

from Stan Fischler of the Fischler Report,

* Have you noticed how the Vancouver media jackals have jumped all over John Tortorella? Not nice.

* Torts is not the problem; his general manager hasn’t exactly given his coach an Anaheim-type team.

* Plus, two back-up goalies sure doesn’t inspire confidence in the other lads, does it?

* It’s time for Marty St.Louis to start busting out; not to mention Rick Nash.

* He won’t win the Norris Trophy but Ryan McDonagh sure deserves more attention than he gets.

* Rather deservedly, Jaromir Jagr is commanding a lot of headlines in New Jersey but there’s another Czech who quietly is having a career year with the Devils — Marek Zidlicky.

Had Torts started Luongo against Ottawa they would still have a quality goalie.  Torts did it to himself.  Starting Lack was utter stupidity.  Let’s say Luongo gets shelled; its then a smart tactical loss and he is appeased for the long term.  Torts blew himself up on that one.

Jenish’s book is OUTSTANDING, Have read it twice it was so good and, yes, Ziegler emerged as a surprise hero.  Jenish did an outstanding job on expansion era.
