from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
...Which reminds us. We’d pay to be in the room for a hypothetical meeting between Wang and Tortorella in which the owner suggests Doug Weight be given more time on the power play. We bet it would be play out much like the exchange between Tortorella and me that’s been on YouTube for more than a year.
Bryan Trottier, meanwhile, in the organization and compatible with ownership, would be an outstanding choice at this time to coach this team. So would Butch Goring. And then there’s Ulf Samuelsson, an assistant in Phoenix, who may or may not be ready for his first head-coaching gig, but sure is ready for an interview.
Even as Trottier was overwhelmed by the job on Broadway, and even if he had no clue how to communicate with people like Eric Lindros and Pavel Bure - sure, let’s play Ronald Petrovicky on the first power play to teach Bure a lesson; why not? - the Great No. 19 was terrific with the kids on the Rangers’ roster.
