Talking With Tortorella

from Stan Fischler of MSG.com,

Torts is with family at his Wisconsin retreat where he hikes and does some fishing.

Relaxing is a luxury sprinkled around his Summer that somehow remains consumed with hockey thoughts

Still, I couldn’t resist asking John whether he was, in fact, relaxing. If nothing else, he sure sounded cool, calm and collected.

“Relaxing?” he said mulling the question. “Never completely—because this has been a busy Summer for the team and I was involved in a lot of stuff.”

Talk about “stuff,” you can start with the suspenseful Rick Nash negotiations that eventually culminated with the Blue Jackets trade.

If you want emotional moments, how about the departure of one of the coach’s favorites, Brandon Prust.

Nor was it easy bidding au revoir to Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov and Tim Erixon. That was just for starters along with John Mitchell and Ruslan Fedotenko.
