Prospal Speaks Like Tortorella

from Lightning Strikes,

But it was difficult to ignore Prospal’s outburst, though Torts did his best.

“I’m not here to be the happy man and make everybody happy,’’ he said. “I’m here to make calls as far as the game is concerned.’‘

And this after Torts was asked if he sensed some relief in Prospal:

“I’m sure there was quite a bit of relief and a few other things, too. That’s life. He played really well. Athletes that are upset, they contribute and help the team win, coaches are happy. This isn’t a touchy-feely thing here or love fest. This is a game of hockey and we’re fighting for our life.’‘

what did Prospal say, well read on...
