Kukla's Korner Hockey

The John Tortorella thing just keeps getting better. Before Game 4 - and after he embarrassed himself, his organization and the league with his press-conference performances - Lord Torts suddenly found a use for the media when his player, Brandon Prust, was facing a suspension
Just like that, The Great Man turned into Winston Churchill. He talked about the Devils’ many crimes against the Rangers. He talked about their under-handed tricks on the power play. He defended Prust at length. It was great stuff.
But here’s the thing. If you’re going to be a jerk, be a full-time jerk. At least that way people know who they’re dealing with. You can’t be a jerk 80 per cent of the time, then turn into Mr. Thoughtful when it suits.
But that’s Tortorella. He isn’t even good at being a jerk.
