Tortorella Has Concerns During The Lockout

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

As would be expected, Tortorella has mixed feelings about his locked-out athletes playing in Europe, as are Rick Nash (Switzerland), Ryan McDonagh (Russia) and Carl Hagelin (Sweden).

“On one hand, I worry about the risk of injury — Rick already had the shoulder issue, which turned out to be minor — but on the other hand, I believe the guys who are playing games and competing will be sharper and better off when camp begins,” Tortorella said.

“I worry about our older guys like Richie [Brad Richards] and Rupper [Mike Rupp] who aren’t playing. It’s tough and they need to stay on top of it, because when we get into this, the best 20 guys are going to play on opening night,” he said.
